Liebherr-Werk Nenzing in Austria has developed a new 100 ton capacity class lattice boom crawler crane. The LR1100 will make its debut at the Bauma exhibition in Germany in mid-April 2015 and deliveries will start in the middle of the year.
In a departure from conventional design where steel plate is used, the new crane has a tubular structure. This improves performance and gives the crane a different appearance, said Liebherr.
East transport and quick set up are features of the new LR1100. The boom foot and crawler track frames stay on during transport, The catwalks can be fold down instead of having to be dismantled and removed.
One of the special option, is a counterweight system that can be swung backwards hydraulically, increasing capacity by around 20%.
In addition, fixed and luffing jibs are also available as optional.
The crawler crane is powered by a 230 kW diesel engine built to meet Stage IV and Tier 4 Final exhaust emission standards. Engines without exhaust after treatment can be specified for markets with other regulations, said Liebherr.
