World premiere: Liebherr extends product portfolio with rough-terrain cranes
Liebherr has extended its mobile crane product range with an additional series of rough-terrain cranes in the 100 USt (90-metric ton) and 110 USt (100-metric ton) classes. They feature high performance, safety and comfort. High safety levels in every respect were the main priority for the design of the new Liebherr LRT cranes. Both new crane models feature an outrigger monitoring system as standard. The support status, on tires or outriggers, is detected automatically and saved to the crane controller. The attachment of the ballast to the turntable and the installation of the optional double folding jib, including its angle adjustment, are also recorded and monitored.
The VarioBase® variable support base developed by Liebherr as standard on the new LRT cranes makes an important contribution to enhancing safety. VarioBase® also provides greater performance and flexibility on site. Safety is also enhanced by providing greater comfort for the crane operator. For example, the crane cabin is 220 mm (8.5″) wider than other standard cabins on the market. It can be tilted backwards to provide greater comfort when hoisting loads to great heights. Clear, self-explanatory controls make the crane easy to handle.
The 110 USt (100-metric ton) LRT 1100-2.1 has a 164 ft (50 m) telescopic boom with a “Telematik” telescoping system on which the various telescoping sections can be extended independently with a single cylinder and then pinned to the telescopic section above. The 30,800 lbs. (14-metric ton) of counterweights ensure high stability. The lifting capacity of the LRT 1100-2.1 is around 15% higher than that of the 100 USt (90-metric ton) model which features 26,500 lbs. (12-metric ton) of counterweights. The LRT 1090-2.1 features a 154 ft (47 m) telescopic boom. Its telescoping system consists of a two-stage hydraulic cylinder with a rope extension mechanism.
Experience the Liebherr 710 HC-L tower crane in the virtual world
Liebherr Tower Cranes will offer its visitors a unique experience at Conexpo – with a virtual reality application they can experience a crane in real time – for example, the 710 HC-L, which is currently in action on the MoMA Tower in New York.
This “flight” can hardly be put into words – you just have to experience it. Simply take a look through the virtual reality goggles and you will find a whole new world – from the trade show stand direct to the city, to a site about 1,000 ft. (300 m) in the air, immediately in front of the Liebherr 710 HC-L luffing jib crane. Using the game pad you can explore this 3-D world for yourself – take a look at the man-size hook up close, fly into the crane’s jib or through gigantic urban canyons and watch the traffic below – anything is possible. Using this virtual reality application, visitors can experience the crane in a whole new dimension, including different weather conditions and different times of the day and night.
Liebherr 81 K.1 tower crane
Liebherr will be exhibiting its new 81 K.1 fast-erecting crane, an upgrade of the 81 K, at the Conexpo Con/Agg in Las Vegas. The new crane is even more powerful and flexible. The lifting capacity of the upgraded Liebherr 81 K.1 fast-erecting crane can be temporarily increased by up to 20%. Using the so-called Load-Plus function, there is no need to use an additional larger crane for heavyweight hoists. By bolting on an extension, the jib can be extended by 9.84 ft. (3 m) without much effort. Compared to its predecessor, this increases the maximum radius to 157 ft. (48 m). This almost places the crane in the next higher crane class.
Liebherr is also unveiling the new optional exterior cabin for its K series cranes. Depending on requirements, this cabin can be installed quickly and easily on any new K crane using its own load hook. The safe access ladder on the side is easy to reach. Due to its external position, the crane driver has a perfect view of the site.
The new cabin with its ergonomic controls provides the crane driver with plenty of space and enables him to work efficiently without fatigue. This results in greater capacity and safety in operation. Another positive side-effect is that costs will be reduced for fleet operators since the same cabin can be used on different Liebherr fast-erecting cranes where necessary.
THS 110 D4f-K crawler concrete pump
Smooth running and outstanding suction performance are the hallmarks of a powerful pump unit in the crawler concrete pump THS 110 D4f-K, which will be on display at the 2017 Conexpo. Furthermore, an open hydraulic circuit guarantees reduced system maintenance requirements.
The Liebherr crawler concrete pump is particularly suited for applications in which pumping of the concrete is constantly being relocated around the building site. Maneuvering and operation of the crawler track-mounted concrete pump is effected via remote control. The series of Liebherr crawler concrete pumps encompasses three different models – the THS 80 D-K, the THS 110 D-K and the THS 140 D-K providing max concrete outputs of 93 yd³/h to 177 yd³/h. The engine has emission standard tier 4 final.

At Conexpo 2017 Liebherr emphasizes its function as full-service provider for deep foundation application with the North American trade fair premiere of its piling and drilling rig LRB 355, its piling rig LRH 600 as well as its duty cycle crawler crane HS 8130 HD. As attachment the new hydraulic free-fall hammer H 15 L is on display.
The robust undercarriage of the piling and drilling rig LRB 355 guarantees a high level of stability. Thanks to the parallel kinematics the machine has a large operating area. Further major advantages are its fast mobilization and easy transportation. The rig can be used for all common drilling applications, soil mixing as well as piling jobs with vibrator and hydraulic hammer.
For the LRH 600 the successful and tried-and-tested crawler crane model LR 1300 with attached leader system functions as a basic machine. It is particularly suitable for tough piling operations with high outreach. It is displayed at Conexpo with the Liebherr rotary drive BAT 320. A further possible working tool is the hammer H 15 L. Thanks to the short and lightweight design, the hammer is extremely efficient as well as user-friendly in terms of transportation and maintenance. At the same time, the pile helmet is soundproof in the standard version.
The Liebherr duty cycle crawler crane, type HS 8130 HD, can be used for various deep foundation applications as well as for the typical material handling tasks of a duty cycle crawler crane. These include working with slurry wall grab up to 35 t and casing oscillator up to 3 m, material loading with grab or dragline bucket, dynamic soil compaction as well as various dredging applications.
In the field of deep foundation work Liebherr offers its customers a large number of services, including technical consultation in the planning stage, application consulting on the jobsite, training, recording, evaluation and transfer of machine data via LiDAT as well as the documentation and analysis of the processes on the jobsite via PDE/PDR. At Conexpo Liebherr shows LiPOS, the new positioning system for Liebherr machines and working tools, and its simulators allowing for training in a virtual but realistic environment.
Liebherr components on display
Liebherr’s Components division presents various innovative components from the mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems areas in the South Hall 4, Booth #S84230. One of the main highlights is the hydraulic cylinder series-production range for pressures of up to 350 bar, which will be presented for the first time to the American market. Specifically designed for dynamic loads, this series of double-acting differential cylinders is suitable for mobile as well as in industrial environments in the pressure range of up to 350 bar, optionally up to 380 bar. In general, 20 different piston diameters between 3.94 to 8.66 inches (100 to 220 mm) can be combined with two piston rod diameters and strokes of up to 90.55 inches (2,300 mm) can be achieved.
On the Components’ exhibition stand, visitors will also find the newly developed LH30VO axial piston pump of swash plate design. The medium pressure pump complements the existing product portfolio in the range of 280 bar nominal pressure and is suited for use in mobile machinery. The pump for all mobile applications with open circulation has a specific delivery rate of 45 cm³ per rotation and is already available with two of the most common controls.
Further new developments at the exhibition are the electric travel drives FAT 400 and FAT 550 with permanent magnet technology, which follow the FAT 325 launched in 2015. With this product range Liebherr adds electric versions to its previously hydraulically operated travel drives and responds, on the one hand, to the increasing demand for electrically powered crawler-tracked vehicles and, on the other, meets the demand for environmentally friendly technologies. The solution ensures high power density from an extremely compact design. The latter enables tailor-made placement of the drivetrain in the confined space conditions of the machine. A reduced number of spare parts, in turn, provide for a long service life. With the IP67 protection and durable sealing systems, the entire Liebherr drive is not only protected from environmental influences, such as dust and water in normal operation, but is optimally adapted to specific environmental conditions.
Liebherr will also be presenting the newest developments in the diesel engines segment. The exhibited D956 A7 in-line engine represents one member of the new engine family by Liebherr and sets forth the development strategy based on modularity, i.e. exhaust after treatment and standardized parts and options. This state-of-the-art in-line engine has been developed to fulfil the current and future requirements set by customers and emission regulations.
