Flexibility is a key
Flexibility is a key feature of the Liebherr crawler crane LR 1160. The crane’s variable boom configurations offer a wide range of lifting applications. The 160-tonne crane further convinces with its high mobility as it is able to travel with the load on the hook. In addition, the innovative jack-up and self-assembly system enables quick and cost-efficient transportation and set-up.
Designed for road transportation
When disassembled the crawler crane has a compact transport width of maximum 3 metres, which permits cost-effective transportation with standard low loaders. The connecting pieces of the luffing jib can also be transported in the connecting pieces of the main boom to save space. Fewer transport vehicles are therefore required.
Self-loading and self-assembly system
The innovative self-assembly and self-loading system enables unloading and assembly without an auxiliary crane. For crawler cranes in this size category, more cost-effective transportation and quick commissioning play an instrumental role in efficient operation.
Precise crane control
The control system developed by Liebherr includes all operating and control functions of the crane and permits very delicate and secure lifting. The load capacities are automatically calculated during operation. The calculation of the load moment indication is also effected steplessly or without interpolation. Optimal utilisation of the machine is thus guaranteed.
Moving with load on the hook
A key advantage of the crawler crane is the option to move with the load on the hook - also on rough terrain. This mobility significantly increases the operating range on the construction site.
