ALL Crane Adds Liebherr LR 1800-1.0
The ALL Family of Companies is beefing up its crawler crane offering in a big way with the purchase of a new Liebherr LR 1800-1.0. Unveiled by Liebherr at Bauma 2019, the high-tech heavyweight has an 800 t capacity, 200 m of hoist height, and a maximum radius of 150 m.
The purchase is in addition to the 21 Liebherr cranes announced earlier and delivering to ALL throughout 2021. Delivery of the LR 1800 is expected in May.
The LR 1800 delivers outstanding lifting capacities while still being easy to transport from job to job and branch to branch across ALL’s North American footprint. Features that reduce transport costs include a less than 3 m transport width, a maximum transport weight of 45.3 t, and, for the first time, the boom system features lattice sections with 3 system dimensions which can be telescoped into each other for transport.
The crane’s best new feature might be its V frame derrick, a hydraulically adjustable folding frame that allows enormous adjustment distances with a ballast radius of between 14 and 22.8 m. It delivers maximum flexibility compared to the standard rigid system for large ballast radii and makes the LR 1800 more maneuverable while also simplifying the use of the derrick to save valuable time on a jobsite.
The extra-wide 2.4 m track pads spread the weight over a larger area, giving the LR 1800 a greater maneuverability across a wider range of ground conditions, making it a workhorse in a variety of applications including bridge work, industrial projects, power and processing plants, and wind energy.
“The size of windmills continues to grow,” said Rick Mikut, crawler crane division manager for ALL. “Because it can easily reach some of the newer 90 m to 110 m windmill heights, wind will be an important market for this machine.”
