The crane exists out of the combination of a Liebherr LTM 1090/2 undercarriage with a Liebherr LTM 1030/1 superstructure. The undercarriage is powered by a Liebherr D 9406 TI-E, an 8-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 300 kW (408 hp). The crane has an 8x8x8-drive line, where all axles are powered and steerable.

The main boom has an 8.4 meter base length and extends three times to a maximum length of 26 meters. For the transport over the road is it required to extend the main boom by approx. 1.5 meters to be parked beyong the cabin.

The mass of the crane is approx. 32 tonnes and the crane has axle loads of 8 tonnes.

At the rear of the undercarriage are a heavy winch and the spare tire mounted. It is also possible to tow other vehicles.

Attached to the superstructure is an extension with a pully, the winch can be guided through the pully to make the salvage of stranded vehicles easier.
