LTM 1500-8.1 Mobile crane

The LTM 1500-8.1 was first unveiled at the Bauma in Munich as long ago as 1998. Around 20 years later, in summer 2020, the 600th unit of the 8-axle crane was delivered. The most successful large crane of all time is ideal for a very wide range of jobs with its high lifting capacity, enormous reliability and mobility both on the road and at sites. It is used wherever heavy loads have to be hoisted quickly – industry, infrastructure, wind power or loading work. The successful giant will be replaced by the LTM 1650-8.1 as from 2020.
