Liebherr EC-B series cranes have maximum load capacities ranging from 13,200 to 35,200 pounds, and maximum jib head load capacities ranging from 3,500 to 13,200 pounds working at a maximum radius.
The first eight models in the EC-B series are the 125 EC-B 6, 220 EC-B 10, 220 EC-B 12, 240 EC-B 10 Fibre, 240 EC-B 12 Fibre, 340 EC-B 12, 340 EC-B 16, and 370 EC-B 12 Fibre. The 340 EC-B 12 and the 370 EC-B 12 Fibre reach up to 255 feet.
The 240 EC-B Fibre and 370 EC-B Fibre cranes feature soLITE high-tensile fiber rope. The service life of fiber rope is four times longer than steel rope, the company says, and weighs around a fifth of steel rope.
Cabins offer various storage options, and electrical power sockets and USB interfaces, and Bluetooth connectivity. A 12-inch multi-touch display ensures all cabin control functions are integrated. Air conditioning, radio, and windshield wipers are also controlled via the display.
The cabin is available in three options: The LiCAB Basic, the LiCAB Air with air conditioning, and the premium LiCAB AirPlus version with air conditioning, double glazing and tiltable side windows.
The new cranes have also been designed with quick-assembly connections for jibs and counter-jibs.
Liebherr has also developed a new tower system, the 12 EC 125, for the 125 EC-B 6 as part of the new series, with posts measuring 3,900 feet. The 12 EC tower system comes in two lifting capacities: the 12 EC 100 and the 12 EC 125.
