The LRT 1090-2.1 from Liebherr is a rough-terrain crane with all-terrain maneuverability. It is set to debut at the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show (March 7–11, Las Vegas).
The standard VarioBase® ensures that the LRT 1090-2.1 rough-terrain crane delivers a high level of safety and performance. The VarioBase outrigger monitoring system enables each support to be extended to a different length while automatically delivering support status information to the operator. It’s suitable for maintaining safety and flexibility in the tight spaces often encountered in urban and industrial jobsites. It also allows for greater capacity when lifting over the supports. Further, the hydro-mechanical telescoping system with rope pull technology enables the telescope to be extended to the required length quickly and easily.
The crane seamlessly incorporates forward-thinking safety features into a sleek, modern package. The flat deck, electrically extendable cab platform, and multiple ladders minimize the risk of fall injuries. Controls are intuitive and easy to understand. The attachment of the counterweight and installation of the jib are fully monitored by the crane during setup.
The LRT 1090-2.1 features a maximum load capacity of 90 tons (198,400 pounds), telescopic boom and lattice jib from 39′ to 154′, a 217′ maximum hoist height, and a maximum radius of 164′. Its six-cylinder diesel drive engine offers 194 hp with two axles, a speed of approximately 15 miles per hour, and 4x4x4 drive/steering standard. Total ballast is 26,400 pounds.
The ALL Family of Companies, the largest privately held crane rental and sales operation in North America, has already pre-ordered 15 machines.
“With VarioBase, ALL can do what used to be impossible,” said Hutton Strader, business development specialist for ALL. “Imagine having the outriggers fully retracted on one side and fully extended on the other, while still having the crane allow for full capacity when it swings to the extended side. The LRT 1090-2.1 can do that.”
