ALL Takes Delivery of New
Liebherr All-Terrain Cranes

LTM 1450-8.1 package purchased before debut
at last CONEXPO Show

 

December 19, 2017— The ALL Family of Companies will take
delivery next month of two 500 ton Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1
all-terrain cranes. In keeping with ALL’s strategy of working
with manufacturers to obtain the newest and best machines,
the company ordered these cranes before they had even
made their U.S. debut at last spring’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG
show in Las Vegas.

 

With a powerful 279-foot telescopic main boom and a full
range of lattice jib attachments, this Liebherr AT can handle
jobs at — and often above — its 500-ton capacity. The LTM
1450-8.1 was manufactured to accommodate a variety of
transport weight and machine axle configurations, making
it one of the most road-friendly 8-axle ATs on the market.

 

“We’re always scanning the horizon of the industry anticipating
customer needs in the months and years ahead,” said Hutton
Strader, business development specialist for ALL. “It’s why we
frequently pull the trigger on orders very early in the life of a
new model. We want to make sure we are serving our
customers not just today, but in the future.”

 

The LTM 1450-8.1’s VarioBallast® system adds capacity when
needed, but still allows the nimble AT to work in spaces where
many other large cranes simply will not fit. There is great
potential for the machine on wind farms, refineries, chemical
plants, as well as in setting up tower cranes.

 

“In addition to its obvious power and versatility, the LTM
1450-8.1 is designed with readily transportable weights and
dimensions,” added Strader. “The speed with which it can be
delivered to a site and assembled maximizes uptime for all
who use it, positively impacting profitability for our customers.”

 

The machine is ideal for a national crane rental company like
ALL, where machines move from yard-to-yard and state-to-state
based on market demand or a specific job site’s needs. “The
new 1450 is accommodating for states with strict axle load limits,”
explains Strader. “Boom sections two through six are completely
removable, leaving just the first main boom section. Front and
back outriggers can be removed as well. And this model is
Liebherr’s fourth mobile crane to feature the new Liebherr single-
engine concept, a feature that not only allows for a stronger crane
by redistributing the saved weight for structural enhancements,
but also reduces engine maintenance literally in half.

 

Finally, the LTM 1450-8.1 doesn’t require a special trailer or a
superlift. Liebherr previously has utilized a super-lift attachment
for its large ATs, also known as a Y-guy or superlift system. The
new
LTM 1450-8.1 is designed to achieve strong capacities
without the need for a superlift, which saves time during setup,
reduces costly trailer loads, and allows for large jobs in confined
spaces.

 

It all adds up an amazing mix of easy transportability, fast set up
, and lifting power. “Customers are going to love it,” said Strader.
