30 years in the ground – LTM 1500-8.1 removes 104-tonne tower crane foundation

For over 30 years, there has been an enormous concrete foundation under the floor slab of a department store in Herne. It was rediscovered when the building was demolished. As the foundation was above an underground railway tunnel, it was not possible to crush it in situ. Therefore, a 500 tonne LTM 1500-8.1 mobile crane from crane and heavy haulage specialist Autokrane Schares GmbH based in Bocholt was used to remove the foundation and place it in an open space, where it was then crushed using heavy machinery.

Mobile and powerful – Liebherr unveils new 700-tonne LR 1700-1.0 crawler crane

After 12 years and over 200 units produced, Liebherr’s successful LR 1600/2 crawler crane now has a successor – the design of the LR 1700-1.0 with a maximum lifting capacity of 700 tonnes is based on its 600 tonne predecessor and features similar dimensions. In many respects, the new crane even exceeds the performance of the LR 1750/2. The first models of the new crane will be delivered around mid-2021, around the same time as the final LR 1600/2 units will be delivered. As deliveries of the LR 1750/2 will also cease after almost 20 years of production, the powerful LR 1700-1.0 will also assume its position below the 800 tonne LR 1800-1.0. Find out more

Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1 mobile crane installs elevator shaft against the backdrop of the Frankfurt skyline

Passers-by were treated to a rather rare site in a pedestrian zone at the end of January in Frankfurt city centre – a 5-axle mobile crane extended its long telescopic boom high above the fronts of the buildings. Hanging from its hook were components of an elevator shaft which had to be installed at the rear of one of the buildings. The red crane was the Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1 operated by Frankfurt-based crane and heavy haulage specialist Autodienst West Ganske GmbH (ADW). Find out more

Job-sharing at Bracht – LTM 1450-8.1 fast-erecting crane impresses in tandem hoists

Liebherr designed its 8-axle LTM 1450-8.1 crane for worldwide cost-effective mobility and fast, easy setup on site. It is capable of travelling on public roads with a 12-tonne axle load including its complete 85 metre telescopic boom, all four outriggers and the hoist winch. This enables it to be prepared for use very quickly once it reaches the site. It also means that two of these fast-erecting cranes completing hoists in tandem can sometimes be more economical than using a single large crane. In fact, this is a recurrent theme at crane and heavy haulage specialist Franz Bracht Kran-Vermietung GmbH. Find out more
