TThe track width of the LR 1500 is 24’11”/ 7.6 meters, and within the 400-ton class range. The standard base plates on the LR 1500 measure 4’11”/ 1.5 meters in width to achieve low ground pressure.
The derrick system on the LR 1500 is also designed for maximum performance with compact dimensions. The derrick boom is 98 ft/ 30 meters in length and the derrick ballast is up to 617,300 lbs/ 280 tons. The derrick radius can be adjusted in a very large range from 30 ft/ 9 m to 53 ft/ 16 m. A minimum derrick radius of just 30 ft/ 9 m is an excellent value for a 500-ton class crawler crane.
Low cost worldwide transport
With a maximum transport weight of 103,600 lbs/ 46.7 tons the new crane can be transported on all markets without any restrictions. The central crawler section with slewing platform weighs 129,600 lbs/ 58.8 tons. The removable A frame allows this weight to be reduced to 103,600 lbs/ 46.7 tons. No quick connection is required. The transport dimensions of 9'10"/ 3 m in width correspond to the global transport standard.
