The ALL Family of Companies announces that it has preordered several new Liebherr models as yet unavailable in the United States — including two LTM 1450-8.1 500-USt all-terrain (AT) cranes. The Liebherr Group plans to debut the LTM 1450-8.1 at the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show, March 7–11 in Las Vegas).
With a powerful 279-ft telescopic main boom and a full range of lattice jib attachments, the Liebherr AT can handle jobs at — and above — its 500-ton capacity. 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.
“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 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. We see great potential for this machine to work on wind farms, refineries, and chemical plants, as well as in setting up tower cranes.”
“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,” said Michael L. Liptak, president of ALL. “The LTM 1450-8.1 delivers on all of those criteria.”
