12/05/2014 Third Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 mobile crane for Max Bögl – Successful crane concept in the heavy load class

  • Max Bögl takes delivery of its third Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 telescopic mobile crane
  • The LTM 11200-9.1 is perfect for erecting wind turbines
  • Six Liebherr mobile cranes have been supplied to the Max Bögl construction company in 2014

The LTM 11200-9.1 from Liebherr features a load capacity of 1,200 tonnes and a 100-metre telescopic boom. The fact that the heavy duty mobile crane is profitable is confirmed by the number of units delivered, with over 50 being sold since its market launch in 2007. The Max Bögl Group recently took delivery of its third LTM 11200-9.1 and visited the Liebherr plant in Ehingen to collect it. In total the construction company has received six Liebherr mobile cranes in 2014.

Max Bögl's LTM 11200-9.1 hoists a 63-tonne adapter used as a transition from the concrete tower to the steel tower.

The Max Bögl Group received its first LTM 11200-9.1 in April 2013. The group received its second crane of this type in May 2014. Now in November the third LTM 11200-9.1 for Max Bögl was handed over at the Liebherr plant in Ehingen. The company's purchase of the three machines in a short space of time confirms that the concept of Liebherr's heavy duty crane is absolutely right. To date 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. With lattice extensions and a luffing jib the LTM 11200-9.1 can reach hoisting heights of up to 188 metres.

The nine-axle machine with its variable boom system is suitable for universal use for industry, infrastructure and power generation jobs. "We particularly use our LTM 11200 9.1 in the wind power industry. They are perfect for erecting hybrid towers", says Peter Guttenberger, Director of Transport and Machines at Max Bögl.

The Max Bögl Group has invested in four other Liebherr cranes in 2014. The two LTF 1045-3.1 telescopic truck-mounted cranes with their standard truck chassis ensure particularly low running costs on the road. The LTR 1100 and LTR 1220 telescopic crawler cranes feature high functionality on construction sites. Their crawler cranes make them extremely suitable for off-road jobs whilst their telescopic booms make them enormously flexible. Two more LTR 1100 have already been ordered and will be delivered in the first half of 2015.
