The ultimate machine on eight axles!

Children with famous parents often have a hard life. They are under heavy pressure from birth and are expected to be successful. That is exactly the situation facing the new LTM 1650-8.1, which Liebherr unveiled at the Bauma trade fair. And it’s all because it is the successor to the living legend that is the LTM 1500-8.1. With a volume of almost 600 units, it is already the best-selling large crane of all time.

Technical progress and entrepreneurial continuity the recipe for success

In the 50 years of the company’s history, Liebherr in Ehingen has only had two Technical Directors. This is an example of entrepreneurial continuity – a feature to which Liebherr has always attached a great deal of value. It was a special honour for us to be able to talk to Rudolf Becker, who was responsible for design between 1971 and 1994, and his successor Dr Ulrich Hamme about the development of Liebherr mobile and crawler cranes.

The era of one of the most successful crane models ever produced at the Liebherr plant in Ehingen is slowly but surely coming to an end. The thousandth LTM 1200-5.1 mobile crane recently rolled off the assembly line at the crane factory. The last of this model is scheduled to be built and delivered in just a few months’ time. However, its successor has not just been waiting in the wings for some time, it is in fact also already conquering construction sites around the world – the Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1. The new crane celebrated its premiere in April in Switzerland.

“Never before in almost 120 years of its history has such a heavy item been handled at our Rhine port using cranes”, explains Jürgen Preiss. And Preiss, a member of the port management team, knows exactly what he’s talking about. The load that he is referring to was the core piece of a gigantic tunnel drilling machine. Two powerful crawler cranes from the Liebherr Plant in Ehingen were required to tackle this job.

A crane job between splendour and megalomania

It may surprise you to learn that there are alternatives to Neuschwanstein. If you want to find out a little more about King Ludwig II of Bavaria and his (credibly recorded) eccentricity, you could do worse than travel to an island in Chiemsee in Bavaria, where the crowds will be somewhat thinner. Visiting Herrenchiemsee New Palace, modelled on the Palais de Versailles in France, will leave you just as open-mouthed at the world of make-believe created by the Bavarian Fairytale King as travelling to Neuschwanstein Castle, the most famous of the four Royal palaces which Ludwig had built during his 22-year reign.

“Prepared for every task!” is how Liebherr presented the new LTM 1110-5.1 at the Bauma trade fair. The aim for the design of the new 5-axle crane was to enable it to complete jobs all over the world economically and flexibly. But, of course, it had to be powerful as well.
