LR 1700-1.0 - Blending worlds, merging types

  • Leader:

    With its outstanding lifting capacities, the LR 1700-1.0 is the very best in the 600 – 750 t class.

  • High into the sky:

    The boom can be raised to a maximum 198 m – 102 m main boom and 96 m luffing jib.

  • The very latest derrick system:

    The LR 1700-1.0 features the newest innovations such as the V-frame system and the VarioTray detachable ballast system.

  • Reduced transport cost:

    All the transport units for the base machine, including the pivot section, measure below 3 m in width.

  • Revised base machine:

    A new base machine with completely revised static calculations delivers 10 – 15 % more lifting capacity.

  • Don’t waste it – reuse it:

    Lots of time-tested components can be taken from the LR 1600/2.

LR 1700-1.0

Our new LR 1700-1.0 combines the benefits of the low cost transport of 600 tonne class crawler cranes with the performance of 750 tonne class lattice boom cranes. It also features all the innovations of Liebherr’s crawler crane developments from the last few years. The LR 1700-1.0 was designed on the basis of the dimensions of the LR 1600/2 – but with significantly more lifting capacity. A large number of components from the LR 1600/2 can be used for the LR 1700-1.0. The basis of the high performance of the LR 1700-1.0 is the new base machine, whose static structure has been completely redesigned to deliver up to 15 percent more lifting capacity. The structural steelwork for the crawler carriers has been made particularly robust and the size of the rollers increased to minimise wear when moving on the crawler travel gear. The 4-way drive for the travel gear is standard. The modern derrick system has V-frame, VarioTray and the new “M-Wagon” modular ballast trailer. In addition to the LR 1700-1.0, this can also be used for the LR 1800-1.0 and the LR 11000.

Boom/jib combinations

WindSpeed load charts

Increased flexibility and safety by using lifting capacity tables with different maximum wind speeds.


Ballast wagon for relocating the crane with and without a load – without ballast handling! The M-WAGON can be used with several crane models and can be interchanged as required.


Maximum flexibility in derrick mode with enormous adjustment distances for the ballast guide from minimum to maximum derrick ballast radius. The folding V-frame makes it possible.


Small ballast pallet for quickly removing a small part of the derrick ballast. Ideal if lots of ballast is required to erect the boom system but a smaller amount is required for the hoisting work. VarioTray can be unpinned very quickly using just four pins.

HVO ready

Up to 90 % lower CO2 emissions in action.

The merging of two worlds:

And also two elements – wind and earth. With a wind power boom, the LR 1700-1.0 sets new standards in the 600-700 tonne class for wind power. And as an industrial crane it impresses by being the most powerful crane on the market. Find out more

Mobile and powerful:

After 12 years more than 200 machines produced, the successful LR 1600/2 crawler crane now has a successor – the LR 1700-1.0 with a maximum lifting capacity of 700 t has been designed on the basis of its 600 t predecessor and features similar dimensions. Find out more
