The track width of the LR 1500 is 7.6 metres, and therefore within the range of 400-tonne cranes. The standard base plates on the LR 1500 measure 1.5 metres in width to achieve low ground pressure.
The derrick system on the LR 1500 is also designed for maximum performance with compact dimensions. The derrick boom is 30 metres in length and the derrick ballast is up to 280 tonnes. The derrick radius can be adjusted in a very large range from 9 to 16 metres. A minimum derrick radius of just 9 metres is an excellent value for a 500-tonne class crawler crane.
Low cost worldwide transport
With a maximum transport weight of 45 tonnes the new crane can be transported on all markets without any restrictions. The central crawler section with slewing platform weighs 55 tonnes. The removable A frame allows this weight to be reduced to 45 tonnes. No quick connection is required. The transport dimensions of 3 metres in width correspond to the global transport standard.
