The LTR 1220 exceeds the telescopic crawler cranes offered by the competition with regard to the capacity as well as to the boom length.
The crawler chassis offers an extraordinary off-road mobility as well as maneuverability and thus is well drivable. Additionally the full load can be walked with the crane. The LTR 1220 offers the advantage that high loads can be telescoped with the boom, which generally is impossible with a lattice boom.
As the crane contrary to a mobile crane must not be supported it can be fast relocated on the job site and immediately is again ready for operation. The telescopic crawler crane is ideally suitable as an auxiliary crane during the erection of wind power generators for assembly and disassembly of the main crane as well as for handling of parts of the wind generators. The LTR 1220 offers also great advantages for long term job sites in the energy sector or for infrastructure projects.
