Liebherr has extended its mobile crane product range with an additional series of rough-terrain cranes in the 90-tonne (100 USt) and 100-tonne (110 USt) classes. The Liebherr rough-terrain cranes LRT 1090-2.1 and LRT 1100-2.1 will be unveiled to the public at the Conexpo construction machinery trade show in Las Vegas in March 2017. They feature high performance, safety and comfort.
According to the company, the development of the new generation of Liebherr rough-terrain cranes was preceded by extensive market surveys and analyses into the requirements for modern RT cranes, particularly in the main market of North America. In addition to the capacity of the cranes, their safety, particularly their safety resulting from ease of operation, was one of the main focal points for the development of the new cranes.
The two newly designed LRT cranes are based on the same basic technical concept. The crane chassis and turntable are almost identical. The differences relate to the boom length, telescoping technology, ballast weight and lifting capacity.
The new LRT cranes from Liebherr are powerful and robust, have good off-road capability and are also manoeuvrable. Both crane models are powered by a Cummins diesel engine which meets all current emissions regulations.
