Liebherr unveils a new 250-tonne mobile crane to visitors from all over the world at its 2015 customer days at the manufacturing plant in Ehingen. The LTM 1250-5.1 is now the most powerful mobile crane on 5 axles on the market. It is the third crane model on which Liebherr uses its innovative single-engine concept. In addition to a multi-functional folding jib, a 50m fixed jib is also available. The Liebherr innovations VarioBase® and ECOmode mean that crane operators can use the new LTM 1250-5.1 with even more safety and efficiency.

VarioBallast is a new feature for Liebherr. The LTM 1250-5.1 can be operated with two different ballast radii: 5.58m or 4.78m. Liebherr has designed a solution to adjust the ballast radius particularly quickly and easily. The ballast radius is reduced by 800mm using standard mechanically swivelling ballasting cylinders. This solution is a major benefit of the new 250-tonne model for use in constricted conditions.
