LTM 1160-5.2 Mobile crane

The LTM 1160-5.2 delivers efficiency without compromising on performance. Its single-engine concept powers the crane’s superstructure from the undercarriage using a mechanical shaft. ECOmode and ECODrive technologies also help to reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. However, no compromises are accepted when it comes to the lifting capacities and boom of the 5-axle crane – a range of boom configurations ensure it is very flexible in action, whilst the VarioBallast® system enables the crane to manage high lifting capacities with the large ballast radius and constricted sites with the small radius – no problem!

VarioBase makes the crane’s support system variable. It enables each outrigger to be extended to a different length. This enhances safety – particularly in constricted spaces. And what's more, the crane’s lifting capacities are significantly increased, particularly over the outriggers and depending on the configuration.


ECOmode minimises both fuel consumption and noise emissions when operating the crane superstructure. The crane operator sets the required working speed using the control lever. The LICCON 2 control system calculates the perfect engine speed for the diesel engine.

VarioBallast® (mechanical)

Mechanically slewing ballasting cylinders enable the ballast radius to be changed quickly to two different settings. The smaller radius is used in constricted conditions whilst the larger one is used if a higher lifting capacity is required. This significantly increases the crane’s flexibility.
