Press releases | 09/30/2022 How does a Liebherr crawler crane get to Bauma?

At Bauma 2022, Liebherr will be presenting the LR 1700-1.0 crawler crane, which follows the already successful LR 1600/2 and features all the innovations of Liebherr's crawler crane developments of recent years. New features are the increased lifting capacity and easier assembly, making the LR 1700-1.0 particularly suitable for erecting wind turbines.
