Liebherr unveils LTM 1160-5.2 five-axle crane
The load capacity of the new LTM 1160-5.2 has been increased by around 20-25% compared to its predecessor whilst the telescopic boom has remained at the same length of 62m. The vehicle width has been reduced which means that it is easier on constricted sites. The superstructure of the new LTM 1160-5.2 is powered by the engine in the crane chassis using a mechanical shaft.
The six-part 62m long telescopic boom on the new LTM 1160-5.2 is telescoping in and out easily via the tried and tested rapid action Telematik telescoping system. The new 160-tonner can achieve hoist heights of up to 93m and outreaches of up to 76m.
An optional hydraulic adjustment facility for the folding jib is available. For work in two hook operation, a second hoist gear and a 2.9m assembly jib and a rooster sheave is available.
With a total weight of 60t and a 12t axle load, the new crane can carry its double folding jib, a three-sheave hook block and a storage box with a generous payload.
The Liebherr LICCON2 crane control is used in the LTM 1160-5. A mobile, multifunctional control and display unit – BTT Bluetooth terminal – is provided for setup functions. The crane driver also has the option of attaching and removing the hook block on the crane bumper with visual contact via remote control of the hoist winch and the luffing cylinder of the telescopic boom.
