Since April this year French crane contractor S.E Levage has been operating the largest telescopic mobile crane in the country, a Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1. S.E Levage decided to buy a used crane. And since buying a used crane involves a good deal of trust, S.E Levage bought direct from the manufacturer, from Liebherr. The LTM 11200-9.1 was completely refurbished and finished in the customer's colours with full livery. Crane driver Christophe Thenery says: "The crane was like new when we took delivery at the Liebherr plant in Ehingen.

For its fourth job the LTM 11200-9.1 had to go to the centre of Lyon. Two Liebherr excavators had to be hoisted into a yard for demolition work. The 9-axle machine was assembled with 160 tonnes of ballast to hoist the loads of up to 58 tonnes. The road width between the historic buildings allowed all the outriggers to be fully extended for a support base of 13 metres x 13 metres. The Y telescopic guying was installed and the boom extended to 70 metres to enable the crane to hoist the heavy excavators and equipment high over the buildings.

LTM 11200-9.1 telescopic mobile crane – a mobile crane for universal use

The LTM 11200-9.1 is the most powerful telescopic mobile crane on the market. At the same time its telescopic boom is one of the longest in the world at 100 metres. Lattice extensions and a luffing jib enable it to achieve hoist heights of up to 188 metres. The Liebherr 9-axle crane stands out due to its enormous operational flexibility. In addition to wind turbine applications, it is ideal for a very wide range of jobs in industry and for infrastructure projects. Significant increases in lifting capacity can be achieved using the Y telescopic guying. The 1200-tonne machine also has a luffing lattice jib up to 126 metres in length to tackle particularly high hoist heights or radii.

The LTM 11200-9.1 is ballasted with 160 tonnes of counterweights.
