We have had a long and sturdy relationship with Liebherr for many years now, having obtained reliable cranes from them in the past such as the 500t Liebherr LTM 1500.8.1 and the 130t Liebherr LTM 1130.5.1. This new heavy duty mobile crane brings together high performance and low costs – and we are delighted be able to offer such an adaptable crane as part of the mobile crane services we provide.
The ultimate mobile crane
The LTM 1090-4.2 is seen as an excellent ‘all-rounder’. It is designed for adaptable for different driving situations and crane operations of any size. The crane operates with a fast changing system when in transit, allowing it to adapt quickly to various driving conditions – whether that’s driving through a construction site or difficult terrain such as rocky ground and sand dunes– there will be no problems.
It includes a variable steering concept for improved manoeuvrability, and benefits from integrated storage areas – great for carrying daily operation essentials like tools and equipment.
Size & capacity
The capabilities of this crane make it a saviour when it comes to mobile crane hire. With a telescopic boom that can reach 197 feet and hoist heights of 249 feet, it’s hard to think of an operation when this crane wouldn’t be an excellent choice.
The maximum load for this heavy duty mobile crane is an amazing 90 tonnes and it can handle between 10 and 16 tons in terms of axle load when it’s driven. Being able to carry so much weight in one go makes the LTM 1090-4.2 extremely efficient.
The crane’s VarioBallast allows it to turn and carry weights up to its maximum lifting capacity with a bigger ballast radius, plus a smaller radius option is also available for more restricted working environments. So – whatever your workspace – the VarioBallast makes sure this crane can easily function.
Fuel saving & noise reduction
Big pluses with this mobile crane are its low fuel consumption and reduced noise levels. The automatic regulation of the crane’s engine speed, whilst in crane mode, reduces fuel consumption by approximately 10%. The driving strategy of the ZF-TraXon transmission is also improved thanks to the new ECOdrive – with ECO or Powermode – that is incorporated into the carrier. This reduces fuel consumption and noise, causing less disturbance to nearby offices and homes.
The equipment included with this heavy duty mobile crane consists of the essentials for the crane to function accordingly. Sections which require equipment include:
- Crane carrier – Equipment such as outriggers, axles, a cardan shaft, brakes and a driver’s cab.
- Crane superstructure – Equipment such as a telescopic boom, hoist gear, luffing gear, slewing gear and crane drive.
- Operating modes – Equipment such as a double swing-away jib, an erection jib and a hydraulically adjustable swing-away jib.
There is also additional equipment, such as extra counterweights, a second hoist gear and spare tyres – other items are available on request.
The Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 is a fine addition to our fleet and will be of perfect use for all your needs from our heavy mobile crane services.
