Liebherr cranes – the most powerful in the world: crane holding crane unique experiment
Technical progress stimulates the creation of real monsters to lift weights. It is a question of automobile cranes, which are able to independently reach the place of work. The engineers and designers of the German company Liebherr have especially succeeded in the production of heavy-duty truck cranes. To date, the model range of self-propelled trucks of this company owns the majority of world records for load-carrying capacity, cargo-lifting height, and the safety of installation work with super-heavy loads.
Liebherr LR13000 price and specialties
For example, the Liebherr LR13000 truck crane can successfully cope with a weight of 3,000 tons (this is its official lifting capacity), raising it to a maximum allowed height of 12 meters.
