Dimapur, August 15: The ALL Family of Companies will receive the largest crane in its fleet next spring. The Liebherr LR 11000 lattice boom crawler has a 1,200-ton capacity and a 551-foot main boom. Because of its versatility, it is expected to be in high demand across the multiple markets served by ALL. It is suitable for all types of work, including infrastructure, wind power, and industrial construction, and retains strength even in restricted working conditions.
“As wind towers have gotten taller and plants have become more sprawling, the need for a big crane with high capacities and extended reach has become clear,” said Division Manager of ALL’s crawler crane Rick Mikut. “The Liebherr LR 11000 offers exactly what these and other customers have been looking for.”
Mikut said that the crane’s large capacity allows it to accommodate load restrictions standards in a variety of industries easily. “Even at 50% to 70% of load, the LR 11000 offers plenty of capacity to make the big lifts,” said Mikut.
The crane has many features, such as infinite adjustment of the suspended ballast using the V-frame, a hydraulically adjustable folding frame, and a VarioTray detachable ballast system that eliminates the need for stacking and unstacking on a job.
The LICCON2 computer control system provides simple operation, monitored erection mode, and extended set-up options.
Liebherr’s P-boom system, which increases lift capacity, is another option available to ALL customers. A second lattice boom is mounted parallel to the first at the bottom and joined at the top to form a single boom.
The Liebherr LR 11000 is expected to arrive at ALL in late spring 2022.
