High lifting capacities with Y guying

Liebherr mobile cranes are controlled precisely using intelligent technology. The LICCON computer system is at the heart of all this. Liebherr designs and produces the software and hardware for the mobile crane control in-house. Our specialists continue to work on the development of the control's architecture to meet the ever growing demands of the market.

Increase lifting capacity through greater lateral stability

Some Liebherr mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of 350 tonnes or more can be fitted with telescopic boom Y guying. This delivers enormous increases in lifting capacity to be achieved, particularly on long boom systems since it significantly improves lateral stability.

During the guying process, on some mobile cranes the ropes are set to exactly the same length on both sides by clamping cylinders so that the boom is held in the best possible straight position in static load terms.

Low cost erection

  • Liebherr's telescopic boom guying systems are designed to be erected quickly and easily on site.

  • Moving on site

    The design of the telescopic boom guying systems and Liebherr mobile cranes mean that the cranes can be manoeuvred on site when erected.
