Liebherr’s 1,320-ton (at just over an 8-foot lift radius) LTR 11200 telescopic crawler crane is designed for erecting wind power turbines. The narrow-track crawler chassis (15 feet 10 inches wide) allows the assembled crane to crawl the narrow roads in the wind-power parks. With standard outriggers, the crane sets up on a square, 42-foot 10-inch footprint. The 330-foot telescopic boom, Y-suspension, lattice fly jibs and much of the slewing platform are adapted from the LTM 11200-9.1 all-terrain crane. Lift heights in excess of 620 feet are possible.
