LTR 1100 Telescopic Crawler Crane
From its line of telescopic crawler cranes, Liebherr presents the LTR 1100 at this year's CTT in Moscow. The 60-tonner features a 52m long telescopic boom which can be extended with a 10.8m to 19 m long biparted swing-away jib. This allows hoisting heights of up to 83m and boom radii up to 60 m to be achieved. The boom technology and crane control of the LTR 1100 allow the boom to be extended with heavy loads, which is not generally possible with lattice boom cranes.
The crawler travel gear of the Liebherr LTR 1100 provides excellent off-road capacity and superb manoeuvrability, as well as allowing the crane to travel under full load. The advantages of a telescopic crane are the shorter set-up times, easier transport, and the variability of the boom system. The telescopic boom is extended fully automatically and rapidly to the desired length. And because a crawler crane does not need to be supported, it can be quickly set up on site and can start working immediately.
Because of its design and configuration, the LTR 1100 telescopic crawler crane is predestined for the assembly of finished parts. With an erection jib 2.9 metres long and the second hoist mechanism, installation work can be carried out in two-hook operation. The load hoisted from a low loader by the erection jib is passed on with the second hook on the telescopic boom. This allows finished parts to be turned to the correct position and moved to the assembly point with the crawler.
