“As we already have a 650-tonne and a 1,000-tonne crawler crane in our fleet, the LR 1700-1.0 is the ideal addition to the mid-range of our crawler crane portfolio,” explained Marco Wilhelm, authorised signatory and head of technology at Wiesbauer.

Liebherr said the heavy-duty crane’s first operation was to lift a 230-tonne transformer off a ship for an electrical power plant construction project in Marbach am Neckar.

The eight mobile cranes have lifting capacities ranging from 70 to 650 tonnes.
