Liebherr has expanded its series of flat-top cranes with the new 300 EC-B 12 Fibre and 270 EC-B 12. The cranes, which deliver up to twelve tonnes of lifting capacity and a free-standing hook height of up to 91.7m, will replace the existing Liebherr 250 EC-B and 278 EC-B Fibre models.
“The 300 EC-B 12 Fibre features the Liebherr fibre rope and therefore delivers significantly better performance values than similar cranes with a steel rope,” said the company in a statement.
It added: “The fibre rope also has a much longer service life which means that the rope has to be changed less frequently. That makes operation even more economical and increases the crane’s availability.”
At the 2021, Construction Machinery Middle East Awards, the Liebherr LTM 1100-5.2 Mobile All Terrain Crane won in the ‘Crane of the Year’ category.
The 300 EC B 12 Fibre has a 70m jib and delivers a lifting capacity at the jib head of 3,250kg. The steel rope version of the 270 EC-B 12 with a 70m jib has a lifting capacity at the jib head of 2,850kg.
The counter-jib, slewing platform and jib segments can be carried to the site in just four transport units due to their smart stacking system while the jib and counter-jib can be attached to the slewing platform “easily, conveniently and safely,” said the company.
This is made possible by Liebherr’s time-tested quick-release connectors. Depending on the requirements at the site, the jib can be extended or reduced in 2.5m sections.
In August 2021, the brand expanded its “Tough Ones” series with the new 205 EC-B 10 model, while in May 2022, it developed a new multi-tine grab attachment.
