Enhanced safety and performance with VarioBase®
The space available on sites is often constricted. It is frequently impossible to extend all the outriggers of the mobile crane evenly. VarioBase® from Liebherr allows the crane to be used safely and flexibly in these difficult conditions. The increased safety and ease of use take the strain off the crane driver who can concentrate fully on the hoist. The enhanced range and lifting capacity means that the system's capacity has also been improved.

VarioBase®: Benefits in detail
Computer-based safety for crane operation
VarioBase® enables work to be carried out safely in constricted areas. The maximum lifting capacities are calculated individually and precisely for every situation. This ensures safe working practice with any chosen support base.
Increase in efficiency due to high lifting capacity
With its maximum support base, VarioBase® also delivers higher lifting capacities and a larger working range. The greatest advantages are made in the areas directly above the outriggers. The variable support base also delivers improvements for hoisting at the front and rear. The greatest increases are achieved when partial ballast is on the crane. With just a little ballast, the mobile cranes can almost achieve the lifting capacity values from the standard table with high ballast. This reduces the amount of ballast that has to be transported for crane jobs.
Milestone for safety and increased capacity
The VarioBase® system is included in the LICCON job planner. Dispatchers can plan jobs using the variable support base in advance. The job planner is also installed in the LICCON control in the crane cab in many cranes to ensure that hoists can be simulated on the site.More information about LICCON
