LB 45 Drilling rig

With the LB 45, Liebherr presents its successor to the proven drilling rig LB 36-410. Its torque increases by 10% to 450 kNm. Various methods such as Kelly drilling, continuous flight auger drilling, partial and full displacement drilling or double rotary drilling can be applied. Despite of its large machine class the upper carriage is compact and designed for small working radii. This allows for working at jobsites with limited space.
Operating weight 112.0 - 131.7 t
Max. torque 452 kNm
Kelly drilling, max. drilling depth 95.0 m
Kelly drilling, max. drilling diameter 4,500 mm

Features

High performance

High performance

Strong winches enable highest performance even under the most difficult conditions. Furthermore, the noise emission is considerably reduced thanks to their elastic mounting.

Rotary drive with selective Kelly shock absorber

Rotary drive with selective Kelly shock absorber

The latest version of the rotary drive has a newly developed Kelly shock absorber, which allows the damping strength to be adapted depending on the respective weight of the Kelly bar. more

Modular design

Modular design

Both the counterweight and the leader are modularly constructed. This enables quick and easy assembly and flexible application.

Increased drilling depth

Increased drilling depth

The maximum drilling depth for Kelly drilling with 5-fold Kelly bar has been increased to 100 m and so significantly improved.

Various drilling axes

Various drilling axes

The leader top is designed for different drilling axes and is therefore suitable for all applications.

Comfort

Comfort

This includes a modern air-conditioning system with improved airflow, an optimized field of vision and reduced noise protection, as well as an orthopaedic operator’s seat with integrated heating and cooling.

Easy transportation and quick set-up

Easy transportation and quick set-up

Basic machine and leader with all hydraulic hoses connected can be transported in one piece. The minimized assembly work allows for quick and easy transportation of the machine between jobsites. Hence, time and money is saved even before operation starts.

High service availability

High service availability

A global service network with experienced technicians and fast access to spare parts ensure high machine availability and a long product service life.

Innovative crane control

Innovative crane control

The crane control system offers a multitude of programme and control options for various drilling methods. Service and machine data is also provided on color displays. The operator thus benefits from a facilitated handling of the rig. Hence, quick working cycles are achieved.

Designed for challenging jobs

Designed for challenging jobs

Drilling requires a robust and torsion resistant leader. Moreover, thanks to its unique parallel kinematics a large operating area is achieved, thus guaranteeing precise and solid working. The telescopic undercarriage and the long crawlers offer a high level of stability.

Powerful drive technology

Powerful drive technology

The Liebherr-own and fuel efficient diesel engine generates the required power. In combination with the on-board hydraulics a sufficient amount of performance for various deep foundation works is provided. When using further attachments like casing oscillators, no additional power pack is needed.

Accessories

Ground Pressure Visualization

Ground Pressure Visualization

The Ground Pressure Visualization calculates the current ground pressure of the machine in real time and compares it with the specified safety limits of the relevant jobsite.

Drilling Assistant

Drilling Assistant

During continuous flight auger drilling the concreting process is automated thanks to the Drilling Assistant.

Remote control

Remote control

The remote control simplifies the loading process for transportation as well as the assembly of the machine.

Kelly Visualization

Kelly Visualization

Locking of the Kelly bar’s telescopic sections is made significantly easier due to the Kelly Visualization system.

Eco silent mode

Eco silent mode

With the eco silent mode the engine speed can be reduced to a predefined, required level. With this feature a notable reduction in diesel consumption can be achieved without any impact on operational output. Noise emissions are thus also lowered.

Automatic engine stop

Automatic engine stop

The machine can optionally be equipped with an automatic engine stop control. Thanks to this feature it automatically switches off during longer work breaks after evaluating several machine parameters. This is fuel saving and environmentally friendly.

Low-head leader system

Low-head leader system

The automatic casing drive adapter with remote control for locking and unlocking the casing pipe offers significant advantages in terms of safety as no personnel is exposed to the hazardous area. In addition faster production cycles can be achieved.

Fleet management and teleservice

Fleet management and teleservice

The data transmission and positioning system “LiDAT” provides important information on the operation of the machine. With these data the operation becomes more efficient. Various additional modules allow machine data reporting or access through service engineers via teleservice.
