With the new 285 EC-B 12 Litronic, Liebherr has introduced its range of Flat-Top cranes to U.S. customers. As are all cranes in the EC-B range, the 285 EC-B 12 Litronic is designed as a modular concept, which assures compatibility of the tower systems within the range. The central feature of the new Flat-Top crane, says Liebherr, is its compact head, a completely pre-assembled unit that contains the removable cab, switchgear cabinet, jib folding frame, slewing gear, slewing ring (with slewing ring support), and current collector. The 285 EC-B 12 Litronic is designed to ship in standard sea-freight containers and the counter jib is designed for optimum transport convenience.
The CTL 1600 luffing jib tower crane is the largest in the line, with 2.5 times the load moment and a 10-meter longer jib than the next model down.
Largest in the tower crane line, Potain MD 560 B has a 550 tonne-meter rating and is available in 25- or 40-ton versions.
The LR614 and LR624 join Liebherr’s range of crawler loaders powered by Tier-3-compliant engines.
According to Liebherr, the design of LR1200SX lattice-boom crawler crane resulted in part from the request of a large North American crane-rental company that saw a market for a higher-capacity version of the company's 250-ton-rated LR1200. The result of that idea, the LR1200SX, is a crawler crane that provides higher capacities at shorter radii.
