The ALL Family of Companies have pre-ordered several new Liebherr models as yet unavailable in the United States — including two LTM 1450-8.1 500-USt all-terrain cranes. The Liebherr Group plans to debut the LTM 1450-8.1 at the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show (March 7 to 11, 2017 in Las Vegas).
With a powerful, 279-foot telescopic main boom and a full range of lattice jib attachments, this Liebherr AT can handle jobs at and above its 500-ton capacity.
“This all-terrain crane is unique, as it was designed for both ease of transport and minimal setup time, which increases efficiency before, during, and after the job,” said Hutton Strader, Business Development Specialist for ALL.
The LTM 1450-8.1 was manufactured to accommodate a variety of transport weight and machine axle configurations, making it one of the most road-friendly 8-axle ATs on the market.
“The new VarioBallast system also gives us the flexibility to have capacity when we need it, while still allowing us to work in spaces where many other large cranes simply will not fit,” added Strader. “We see great potential for this machine to work on wind farms, refineries, and chemical plants, as well as in setting up tower cranes.”
Michael L. Liptak, President of ALL, commented: “We’re committed to investing in machines that will provide distinct advantages for our customers, whether in terms of strength, flexibility, mobilization, or cost effectiveness. The LTM 1450-8.1 delivers on all of those criteria.”
