Liebherr adds to line with rough terrains
By Troy Geisler21 February 2017
Liebherr will showcase an array of crawlers, all terrains and its most interesting new crane line, rough terrains. The 100-ton LRT 1090-2.1 and the 110-ton LRT 1100-2.1 were designed with the North American market in mind. Both feature an outrigger monitoring system as standard, and the support status, on tires or outriggers, is detected automatically and saved to the crane controller. The attachment of the ballast to the turntable and the installation of the optional double folding jib, including its angle adjustment are also recorded and monitored. The VarioBase support base allows each individual outrigger beam to be extended to arbitrary lengths. The crane work is controlled by the load moment limiter within the LICCON controller which calculates the maximum load capacities precisely for the current situation. The LRT cranes measure 12 feet 8 inches high and 10 feet 10 inches wide. Their curb weight is less than 121,000 pounds with complete equipment, including ballast, of under 88,000 pounds without ballast and without equipment.
Liebherr emphasizes its function as full-service provider for deep foundation application with the North American trade fair premiere of its piling and drilling rig LRB 355, its piling rig LRH 600 as well as its duty cycle crawler crane HS 8130 HD. As attachment the new hydraulic free-fall hammer H 15 L is on display. The robust undercarriage of the piling and drilling rig LRB 355 guarantees a high level of stability. The rig can be used for all common drilling applications, soil mixing as well as piling jobs with vibrator and hydraulic hammer.
Liebherr will also show the LR 1500, its newest 500 metric ton capacity lattice boom crawler. Buckner Heavylift is the first U.S. customer for this crane that was first shown at the company’s Customer Days in mid-2015 and then it had its public launch at the Bauma Munich show in 2016. Among others, an LR 1300SX set up for foundation work will also be at the show, sporting the Bigge Crane & Rigging colors and logo.
From the impressive Liebherr all terrain range will be the Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1. With a powerful 279-foot telescopic main boom and a full range of lattice jib attachments, this Liebherr AT can lift in excess of 500 tons. The LTM 1450-8.1 was manufactured to accommodate a variety of transport weight and machine axle configurations, making it one of the most road-friendly 8-axle ATs on the market, the company said.
