Liebherr presents the new LTM 1750-9.1 to market

June 28 - The new LTM 1750-9.1 all-terrain crane has been revealed by Liebherr to the market.

The 750 tonne mobile crane complements the Liebherr range between the highly successful models LTM 1500-8.1and LTM 11200-9.1. One particular feature of the new nine-axle unit is the fact that the complete telescopic boom can be carried during travel on public roads.

The new model was presented at two customer open days at the company's production plant at Ehingen, Germany.

To help make operation even more economical worldwide, account was taken in the design concept of the LTM 1750-9.1 (pictured below) of the very widely differing transport weights and axle load variations. Another point of focus in the design, too, was particularly short set-up times.

With the 52 m telescopic boom, the telescopic boom Y-guying system, and a whole array of different lattice jibs, the crane has a large number of different boom systems available, and can achieve heights under hook of up to 154 m and outreaches of up to 112 m.

Meanwhile, Liebherr-Werk Ehingen has established a subsidiary company in Denmark.

Liebherr-Danmark, based in Hedensted, Jutland, is responsible for the sales and service of mobile and crawler cranes in Denmark. This allows Danish customers, who include some of the leading manufacturers of wind power systems, to be served more conveniently. The establishment of the company emphasises the growing importance of the Danish market for Liebherr, says a spokesman.
