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.
