Germany: Hamburg-based Knaack sent its Liebherr LTC 1055-3.1 to the Hanseboot boat show to position sail and power boats on their exhibition spaces, and then loaded them back onto transporters after the show.

“I set up over 50 yachts and dinghies, and took them down again after Hanseboot,” said crane operator Lothar Seidenschnur. “I criss-crossed all over the exhibition halls in my LTC.”

Thanks to its tiny dimensions, the compact crane could squeeze through many a tight space between boats, machines and the hordes of assemblers.

The crane could maneuver along visitors' pathways and needed just 2.55 meters of horizontal and 3.2 meters of vertical clearance in order to get around.
