Turner Bros. LLC has taken delivery of the new Liebherr LTR 11200, a telescopic crawler crane. Designed primarily for wind turbine erection and industrial heavy lifting, this is the first LTR 11200 to arrive in North America, according to the company.
The LTR 11200 is the crawler version of the LTM 11200/9.1. The new design places the telescopic boom on a narrow track crawler chassis. Liebherr adopted the telescopic boom, the Y-suspension, the lattice fly jibs and the slewing platform from the mobile version, which has been utilized for wind turbine erection in the U.S. and Europe.
The crawler track's width is less than 16 feet. The narrow design allows the crane to move fully erect through the narrow roads found in wind farms and into confined spaces in industrial settings.
In addition, the LTR 11200 has a maximum lifting capacity of 1,322 tons at an eight-foot radius. The telescopic boom can reach from 60 feet to 328 feet, and the lattice job 79 feet to 413 feet.Â
