Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 - Schot

The Liebbherr LTM 1400-7.1 of Schot building up on a construction site in Rotterdam (NL).

Fitted with 140 tonnes of counterweight, the last 20 tonnes was supplied by principal Sarens.

The job was to hoist two crawler cranes out of the pit.

At first a Sennebogen 630R of Aertssen was hoisted, crane weights about 30 tonnes.

Followed by the body of a Hitachi KH300-3.

The 1400 has extended his boom 36 metres.

The Hitachi body weights about 60 tonnes.

Part 2

The Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 of Schot just set up for a job near a shopping mall in Purmerend (NL).

The crane is set up in a narrow space, with the outrigger pads against the building and with the main boom boomed down enough space between the cables and bridge railing.

With the retrackted counterweights and the adjustment winch on the ballast frame it is possible. The adjustment winch can also pinned to the back side of the frame.

The crane is fitted with 120 tonnes of counterweight.

Fitted with a 77 meter luffing jib, the almost longest length, which is 84 meters.

The work will be done later that night.

Part 3

The Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 of Schot used by maintenance on a big workover unit.

Fitted with a 63 meter luffing jib. With 56.6 meters of main boom is a hookheight of 120 meters reached.

The crane is put up with 130 tonnes of counterweight extended to a 6.6 meter tailswing. The adjustment winch for the luffing jib is mounted on the rear.

Without the YSL boom guying 'only' 56 meters of luffing jib is available. The capacity is 9 tonnes at 32 meters and 7.3 tonnes at 68 meters.

The Seafox 4 has 6 legs with a 84.3 meter length. The two Liebherr BOS cranes have a capacity of 50 tonnes at 12 meters and 5 tonnes at 36.6 meters.

The next day there was some more action.

I'm still a big fan of this beautiful crane.

Part 4

The Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 of Schot is ut up with a luffing jib.

Fitted with 100 tonnes of counterweight and YSL guying. The crane will be used for maintenance on an wind turbine.

A nice detail of the counterweight, which is one metre extendable.

The luffing jib is 42 meters long and can be extended up to a length of 84 meters.

It was the first time that a big crane of Schot was used by a wind turbine.

When the boom is extended 46.3 meters it is enough to exchange the gearbox at 80 meters of axle height.

Because the job was almost ready, the Liebherr LTM 1130-5.1 assist crane is arriving.
