Liebherr re-enters truck crane market
17 April 2008
In June Liebherr-Werk Ehingen in Germany will unveil a pair of telescopic mobile cranes mounted on commercial vehicle chassis. Both the new LTF 1035-3.1 and the LTF 1045-4.1 use elements of the superstructure design from cranes in the LTM series of wheeled telescopic mobiles.
The new 38 ton (35 tonne) capacity LTF 1035-3.1, mounted on a three axle truck, has a superstructure developed from that on the two axle 38 ton capacity LTM 1030-2.1 all terrain (30 m boom). The superstructure of the four axle LTF 1045-4.1 is developed from that of the new two axle LTM 1040-2 with 114 foot (35 m) boom. A difference from the LTMs on the new LTFs is that they each have superstructure engines.
