Mobile Crane LTM 1300-6.2

The LTM 1300-6.2 is the successor to the time-tested LTM 1250-6.1. The new LTM 1300-6.2 features a longer telescopic boom of 256 ft and an increased lifting capacity. The new LTM 1300-6.2 from Liebherr is the most powerful crane in its class available on the mobile crane market. On the one hand it is a simple, classic folding jib crane whilst on the other it is the smallest luffing jib crane on the market providing crane operators with a low cost entry point into the luffing jib crane class.

A completely new concept for the superstructure drive unit has been used on the LTM 1300-6.2. Instead of the twin-engine concept normally used on cranes in this class, the LTM 1300-6.2 is powered by a single engine with a mechanical shaft.

Innovative single-engine concept

A completely new concept for the superstructure drive unit has been used on the LTM 1300-6.2. Instead of the twin-engine concept normally used on cranes in this class, the 300-tonner is powered by a single engine with a mechanical shaft. Gear shafts are routed from the distributor gear in the substructure via two mitre gears through the centre of the slewing ring to the pump distributor gear in the superstructure.

A mechanical shaft ensures a particularly high efficiency level and low engine speeds in the chassis engine provide sufficient power for crane work. This ensures the economy of the new concept in terms of fuel consumption. The simplified engine concept puts Liebherr in an ideal position for modifying its diesel engines to meet the statutory emissions regulations. Other benefits over the use of a separate superstructure engine include a reduction in the amount of maintenance work and a reduction in weight. The omitted weight can be used for load-bearing components, thus increasing the crane's load capacity.
