LIEBHERR: Mobile crane LTM 1650-8.1, bauma 2019

Liebherr is presenting the new 8-axle LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane to the public for the first time at the bauma 2019 trade fair in Munich. With a lifting capacity of 650 t, it is an enormously powerful mobile crane that is available with a 54-meter and 80-meter telescopic boom.

This is the brand new 8-axle LTM 1650-8.1, a prototype that will be presented to the public for the first time at bauma 2019 in Munich. It is a very powerful mobile crane with a lifting capacity of 650 tons. It has a telescopic boom in two versions. One is 54 meters long and this is the version with an 80-meter telescopic boom. The telescopic boom can be extended with lattice jibs. If it were fully assembled, it would reach a hook height of 155 meters.

Crane can work with around 150 tons of counterweight ballast

It is the successor to a very successful crane. A 500-tonne crane that Liebherr built for 20 years. It was first presented at bauma 20 years ago, in 1998. Around 600 units were sold worldwide. And this new crane - with a similar concept - also on 8 axles, has on average around 20 percent more lifting capacity. The special feature of this crane - which you can see at the back - is its counterweight. The crane can work with around 150 tons of counterweight ballast. This is a new technology, a hydraulically adjustable counterweight. The counterweight can be increased in radius, it works like a scale. This gives me more load capacity with a correspondingly large radius. If you don't have the space on the construction site - and it is often tight - then you can reduce the ballast radius in order to be able to work in this area at all.

Many Liebherr customers who have the predecessor will certainly switch to this crane. Applications for this crane include heavy-duty work, loading work in ports, maintenance of wind turbines and the assembly of smaller wind turbines. Liebherr offers larger cranes for the bigger ones. If you negotiate well, you can get the mobile crane at a good price, which depends very much on the equipment. This model costs between 2.5 and 3.5 million euros.
