Moves heavy loads without taking up too much space
The first crane in the new series, the Liebherr L1-24, is available with a radius of either 25m or 27m and a maximum load capacity of 2,500kg. There are two ballast versions available – simple standard concrete ballast or full steel ballast which can be carried on the crane. This means that the operator has no additional transport or erection costs.
With a slewing radius of just 1.9m, the new hydraulic fast-erecting crane from Liebherr is extremely adaptable on constricted sites. Thanks to the flexible support base, the crane's footprint can be reduced to less than 4 metres. This means that there is often no need to close roads.
Its control equipment makes the Liebherr L1 easy to operate and safe to drive. The crane driver has several support functions such as Micromove fine positioning mode, oscillation damping and the operating range limiting system to help him with his work. These all enhance site safety.
Market launch in stages
Liebherr unveiled the new crane to its dealers for the first time in October 2015 at its Spanish manufacturing plant in Pamplona. The new bottom-slewing crane will be launched in stages, starting in Central Europe.
Liebherr dealers in Germany, Austria, France, Spain and Switzerland will present the new bottom-slewing crane to the public for the first time on 11 March 2016. Building contractors and other potential customers can acquire more information about the new hydraulic fast-erecting crane at a total of 40 sites on this L1 Crane Day. An L1-24 will be erected at all participating dealers. A draw for a new L1-24 will also be made during the market launch.
Liebherr will unveil the new series of hydraulic fast-erecting cranes to the wider public for the first time at the Bauma 2016. The main prize of the Crane Day competition, a new Liebherr L1-24 fast-erecting crane will also be awarded during the event. Tower crane operators from Germany can enter the draw by registering for the Liebherr partner event online at www.liebherr.com/L1 and being present at one of the participating Liebherr dealers on 11 March 2016.
