Liebherr crawler joins growing ALL fleet

By Hannah Sundermeyer01 March 2021

The purchase is in addition to a schedule of 21 Liebherr cranes announced earlier this year.

The ALL Family of Companies has purchased a new Liebherr LR 1800-1.0. The heavyweight crawler has an 880-ton capacity, 663 feet of hoist height and a maximum radius of 498 feet. The purchase is in addition to a schedule of 21 Liebherr cranes announced earlier this year and delivering to ALL throughout 2021. Delivery of the LR 1800 is expected in May.

As the most powerful crawler in its class, the Liebherr offers 880 ton capacity and 663 feet of hoist height.

The 1800 delivers outstanding lifting capacities while still being easy to transport from job to job and branch to branch across ALL’s North American footprint, the company said. Features that reduce transport costs include a less than 10-foot transport width and a maximum transport weight of 50 tons. The unit’s boom system features lattice sections with three system dimensions which can be telescoped into each other for transport.

The crawler, unveiled by Liebherr at Bauma 2019, is loaded with features that make it suitable for a wide range of markets and applications served by ALL customers.

Rick Mikut, crawler crane division manager for ALL, expects the LR 1800’s capacity and reach to make it a workhorse in a variety of markets including bridge work, industrial projects, power and processing plants and wind energy.

“The size of windmills continues to grow,” said Mikut. “Because it can easily reach some of the newer 90-meter to 110-meter windmill heights, wind will be an important market for this machine.”
