Range of the Liebherr 172 EC-B 8 Litronic Flat-Top crane increased
The 172 EC-B 8 Litronic Flat-Top crane has been modified – its range has been increased by 2.5 metres and it can now be combined with the new tower system. The tower crane can now hoist 1800 kilograms at the jib head with a radius of 62.5 metres.
The finer division of the jib in 2.5-metre steps means that the crane can be adjusted even more precisely to site conditions and, if necessary, to the awkward edges of buildings.
New tower system
The crane can be supplied with the new 16 EC, 16 HC, 17 HC and 21 HC tower systems. The maximum free-standing hook height of the Flat-Top crane remains at 71.4 metres.
At the event in Paris, the 172 EC-B 8 Litronic will be on a 16 EC tower system. This compact system is a new addition to the Liebherr tower system product portfolio and available in two metre-tonne classes. The range comprises 16 EC 160 and 16 EC 240 towers, with the first figure being the external dimensions of 1.60 m x 1.60 m and the second figure specifying the metre-tonnes. The crane is also supported on a new 20 EC cruciform base with external dimensions of 4.50 metres.
