Mobile and powerful – Liebherr unveils new 700-tonne LR 1700-1.0 crawler crane

After 12 years and over 200 units produced, Liebherr’s successful LR 1600/2 crawler crane now has a successor – the design of the LR 1700-1.0 with a maximum lifting capacity of 700 tonnes is based on its 600 tonne predecessor and features similar dimensions. In many respects, the new crane even exceeds the performance of the LR 1750/2. The first models of the new crane will be delivered around mid-2021, around the same time as the final LR 1600/2 units will be delivered. As deliveries of the LR 1750/2 will also cease after almost 20 years of production, the powerful LR 1700-1.0 will also assume its position below the 800 tonne LR 1800-1.0. Find out more
