ALL will Add 1,200-USt Crawler Crane to Fleet

 Aug. 13, 2021 - Next spring, the ALL Family of Companies will take delivery of what will be the largest crane in its fleet.

The Liebherr LR 11000 lattice-boom crawler crane can lift up to 1,200 USt and raise up to 551’ of main boom.

ALL expects the high-capacity crane to be in high demand in multiple markets thanks to its versatility. It’s suitable for all types of work, from infrastructure to wind power and industrial construction, and it maintains high capacity even in constricted working space.

“As wind towers have gotten taller and plants have become more sprawling, the need for a big crane with high capacities and extended reach has become clear,” said Rick Mikut, ALL’s crawler crane division manager. “The Liebherr LR 11000 offers exactly what these and other customers have been looking for.”

Mikut adds that the crane’s high capacity allows it to easily accommodate load restrictions standard in many sectors. “Even at 50% to 70% of load, the LR 11000 offers plenty of capacity to make the big lifts,” said Mikut. 

The crane is loaded with features, including infinite adjustment of the suspended ballast using V-frame, the hydraulically adjustable folding frame, and VarioTray detachable ballast system that saves the need for stacking and unstacking on a job. The LICCON2 computer control system delivers easy handling, monitored erection mode, and extended set-up facilities.

Another available option for ALL customers is Liebherr’s P-boom system, which further increases lift capacity. The P-boom uses two parallel lattice booms at its bottom. They eventually merge, and from that point the boom becomes a single lattice structure.

All expects to receive its LR 11000 late next spring. With transport weights that can be reduced to 45 USt and a transport width of 11.5’, it will be relatively easy to ship throughout North America.
