LTM 1050-3.1 - An economical taxi crane with three axles.

  • High into the sky:

    The double folding jib enables a hoist height of up to 54 m to be reached.

  • Time-tested system:

    The telescopic boom can be extended quickly using the hydro-mechanical telescoping system.

  • Lower fuel consumption:

    ECOmode reduces fuel consumption by up to 10%.

  • Green – ECOdrive:

    Save fuel and reduce noise automatically with enhanced travel drive tuning.

  • Optional VarioBase®:

    The prize-winning VarioBase® support system is available as an option to enhance safety.

LTM 1050-3.1

The LTM 1050-3.1 is an all-round economical taxi crane concept. When driven on public roads, it can carry the majority of its ballast or its double folding jib. That makes the 3-axle crane very mobile and ensures it can be readied for use quickly. ECOdrive and ECOmode make driving and operating the crane even more economical as they automatically reduce fuel consumption and noise.

ECOmode minimises both fuel consumption and noise emissions when operating the crane superstructure. The crane operator sets the required working speed using the control lever. The crane control system calculates the perfect engine speed for the diesel engine.


ECOdrive makes the mobile crane significantly more comfortable and quieter by reducing the engine speed. Faster gearshifting delivers greater dynamic and traction offroad. On the road, the torque from the Liebherr diesel engine is used efficiently to minimise fuel consumption.


Hillstart-Aid makes starting on gradients easier. Move off safely and easily without rolling backwards.


VarioBase makes the crane’s support system variable. It enables each outrigger to be extended to a different length. This enhances safety – particularly in constricted spaces. And what's more, the crane’s lifting capacities are significantly increased, particularly over the outriggers and depending on the configuration.

Up to 90 % lower CO2 emissions in action.

Family-run company takes delivery of Liebherr LTM 1050-3.1:

A new LTM 1050-3.1 is going to Schleife in the District of Görlitz in East Saxony. Family-run Kran & Transport Lausitz will use the 50-tonne crane to replace a 15-year-old LTM 1045-3. One important criterion behind the purchase decision was that the LTM 1050-3.1 can carry the majority of its counterweights on public roads. That means it can be used quickly and flexibly as a taxi crane. Find out more
