April 26 - Eight years after Liebherr introduced the LG 1750, the most powerful lattice boom mobile crane in the world, the German crane manufacturer has introduced the SL12D2FB, a new and even more powerful boom system which allows erection of the new la

In design, the new system is derived from the established SL9D2FB boom, a main boom with a fixed jib and derrick system.

The use of three strong 12 m lattice sections with a width of 3.5 m instead of 3 m in the lower area of the main boom and the extension of the fixed jib mean both the lifting capacity and the height under hook have been boosted on the new SL12 system. The LG 1750 can now achieve lifts of 141 tonnes at a height under hook of 143 m and 97 tonnes at 160 m.
