Fanger from Sachseln (CH) is owning this very sharp Liebherr LTM 1500, a 500-tonne crane on an 8-axle carrier with year of manufacture 2001.
This crane has the 50-meter long main boom that can be extended by a 63-meter fixed jib or a 91-meter long luffing jib. The fixed jib is also adjustable in angle by hydraulics.
The undercarriage is powered by a Liebherr D 9408 TI-E, an 8-cylinder diesel engine with 598 hp. The crane has four powered axles and six steerable axles.
On the photos has the crane an age of 15 years. Thanks to proper maintenance and storage in a hall, the crane still looks like new.
During the transport over the road the cabin swings behind the superstructure. In operation is hanging here maximum 165 tonnes of counterweight with a 6.6 meter tailswing.
The outrigger base of the crane measures 10.0 x 9.6 meters.
Optionally is is possible to install the TAN boom guying on the main boom. Via this fixed boom guying is telescopic section 2 tied off, what takes care of a more stable boom and more lifting capacity.
The smallest turn circle is inside 7.145 meters and outside 16.47 meters.
Packed is the crane 21.4 meters long, 3 meters wide and 4 meters high. The transport mass is 96 tonnes.
A very sharp crane that is still in operation by its first owner. With thanks to Fanger for posing this crane!
