The newly designed steel fabrication of this Liebherr crawler crane resembles a tubular structure and so has not only a high recognition factor but also allows for optimum force transmission over short distances. This results in excellent lifting capacities even compared to the predecessor model in this class. These can be further enhanced by approx. 20% using a swinging counterweight, which is available as an option. The counterweight is swung backwards hydraulically and so produces a higher stability with increased lifting capacities.
The LR 1100 is fitted with a powerful 230-kW diesel engine complying with the exhaust emission standards stage IV / Tier 4f. For countries with other regulations it is possible to quickly provide engines without exhaust aftertreatment. It is extremely easy to transport and, moreover, excels in extremely quick set-up. The catwalks next to cabin and service areas are simply folded down for transportation instead of being laboriously dismounted.
