Two of the new cranes have already been shown by Liebherr at open days during 2015 at the Ehingen production plant: The 5-axle 250-tonne LTM 1250-5.1 mobile crane and the LR 1500 crawler crane with a maximum load capacity of 500 tonnes.
An 8-axle mobile crane with a very long telescopic boom and whose design focused on high economy and easy set-up on site is completely new.
LTM 1250-5.1 mobile crane – designed for maximum performance
The LTM 1250-5.1 is the most powerful mobile crane on five axles on the market. It is the third crane model on which Liebherr has used its innovative single-engine concept. In addition to a multi-functional folding jib, a 50m hydraulically adjustable fixed jib is also available. The Liebherr VarioBase® and ECOmode innovations mean that crane operators can use the new LTM 1250-5.1 with even more safety and economy.
VarioBallast is an innovation from Liebherr to make crane jobs particularly efficient in practice. For example, the crane can be operated with two different ballast radii: 5.58m or 4.78m. Liebherr has designed a solution to adjust the ballast radius particularly quickly and easily. The ballast radius can be changed by 800 mm using standard mechanically adjusted ballasting cylinders. The large ballast radius delivers maximum load capacities whilst the small ballast radius allows the crane to be used in constricted site conditions were otherwise only a significantly smaller and therefore less powerful mobile crane could be used.
