October 8 - Two Liebherr LTC 1045-3.1 telescopic mobile cranes provided by Schmidbauer were used to complete a compact installation project inside the Liebherr Hydraulikbagger GmbH facility in Kirchdorf.
The crane track for a gantry crane needed to be replaced, since the excavator components it moves are becoming even larger and heavier. By replacing a total of eight girders on the gantry crane system it was possible to double its lifting capacity to 40 tonnes. The two cranes were used to safely hoist and install each of the girders that weighed six tonnes each.
Due to space restrictions inside the hangar, the two LTC 1045-3.1 models were fitted with an assembly jib. It was not possible to use a hook block. The compact cranes proved to be ideally suited to working in constricted spaces.
