Bauma provides the perfect opportunity for manufacturers to show off large cranes and overshadow their opposition.

Liebherr was no exception with its massive LR 1600/1 600t capacity crawler which can also double up as a pedestal-mounted crane.

Normal under hook height is 137m. Add fly jib and the machine can reach to a mighty 191m, claimed to be a world first. As a pedestal with outriggers, the LR 1600/1 has a 267% increase in lifting capacity Moving from site to site, the giant crane can be broken down into components only 3m wide for travelling on the road.
