Liebherr delivers first LTC 1050-3.1 compact cranes with RemoteDrive

Demonstration of Liebherr LTC 1050-3.1 with RemoteDrive.

Salgert GmbH took delivery of two new Liebherr LTC 1050-3.1 compact cranes. These are the first cranes to feature RemoteDrive. A control desk enables the operator to manoeuvre the crane from outside, a massive advantage on constricted sites.

At its 2018 customer days in Ehingen, Liebherr presented a prototype for controlling the LTC 1050-3.1 by remote. However, it did not control the crane movements as they have long been part of standard operations. The new feature enables the whole vehicle to be controlled from outside the cabin. And once again, it enhances safety and convenience because the crane operator has a better view of the problem areas on the site.

Wolfgang Salgert, Managing Director of Salgert GmbH, was one of the first people to order this new technology. “I have been looking for a way of controlling our LTC compact cranes by remote for many years. They perform 70 percent of their work in constricted industrial buildings. This means that we face situations every day where the crane operator cannot see the whole picture. RemoteDrive enables the crane operator to stand in front of the crane and manoeuvre it safely through constricted access routes”, says Salgert to explain his decision.
