It may be the largest all terrain crane in the world, but Liebherr has managed steady sales of its LTM- 11200-9.1, recently notching up its 50th sale since the ATC was launched in 2007 at the Bauma fair.

The 50th mobile crane was sent to the Japanese company Yamagata, following an inspection in July by the company’s MD, at the Liebherr mobile crane factory in Ehingen, Germany.

The fifty cranes delivered to customers so far have been sent all over the world. For example, seven LTM 11200 9.1 cranes are now owned by German companies, there are five in Mexico and four are in use in Brazil. The new crane for Yamagata is heading for Japan, which will make a total of five machines on the market there also.

There are also at least two in the Middle East, including one with rental company Al Faris.

The 1,200 tonne capacity class lifter has a boom that extends to more than 100 metres, and with the jib extension its maximum hoisting height is 188m, and max radius 136m. Examples of real world lifts include 129.5 tonnes to a max 21 metre radius (erection of a portal crane), and a load of 9.5 tonnes to a hoist height of 154 metres at a 31 metre radius (erection of a radio tower).

For transportation, the crane’s boom is transported separately on a low bed trailer, with a number of different load configurations for the main crane vehicle possible.
