Liebherr produces new flagship crane
Liebherr Maritime Cranes has launched its new flagship mobile harbour crane LHM 800. The company says that this giant model is the mobile solution for ever growing vessel sizes and heavy industrial goods, taking container, bulk and general cargo handling to the next level.
The LHM 800 represents a forward-looking extension at the head of Liebherr’s mobile harbour crane (LHM) range. The dimensions and capabilities of the LHM 800 are said to be unique and aim to outperform all existing HMs in the market.
Like the complete Liebherr LHM range, the LHM 800 relies on the x-shaped undercarriage. The wheelsets have been slightly adapted to ensure optimum load distribution of this new giant, which weighs approximately 745 t. Thanks to its rubber tyred undercarriage the crane is mobile and can be moved to where it is needed most.
The new giant LHM provides a lifting capacity of 308 t, thus exceeding the maximum capacity of the LHM 600, the strongest to date, by 100 t.
