Liebherr LR 1800-1.0 added to All Crane Fleet

February 26, 2021

The ALL Family of Companies is beefing up its crawler crane offering in a big way with the purchase of a new Liebherr LR 1800-1.0. The high-tech heavyweight has an 880-USt 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.

 The most powerful crawler on the market in its class, the LR 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. Features that reduce transport costs include a less than 10-foot transport width, a maximum transport weight of 50 USt, and, for the first time, the 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.

The crane’s best new feature might be its V frame derrick, a hydraulically adjustable folding frame that allows enormous adjustment distances with a ballast radius of between 46 and 75 feet. It delivers maximum flexibility compared to the standard rigid system for large ballast radii and makes the LR 1800 more maneuverable while also simplifying use of the derrick to save valuable time on a job site.

Rick Mikut, crawler crane division manager for ALL, also points to its extra-wide 2.4-meter track pads as another welcome upgrade. “By spreading the weight over a larger area, the LR 1800 creates less ground bearing pressure and allows for greater maneuverability across a wider range of ground conditions,” said Mikut.

 The unit also includes Liebherr’s updated LICCON 2 onboard software package for improved crane control.

 Mikut 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.”

 Mikut believes the Liebherr LR 1800-1.0 fulfills another unique niche for the ALL fleet, with its 880-ton capacity slotting comfortably between the 650-700 USt and 900-1000 USt weight classes.

 “This purchase demonstrates ALL’s continued commitment to making sure our customers have every tool available to them to get their jobs done affordably and on schedule, no matter where they are or what market they’re serving,” said Mikut.
