Maxim Crane Works is a company that specialises in the rental and sale of lift equipment including hydraulic truck cranes, rough terrain cranes, crawler cranes, tower cranes, conventional truck cranes and boom trucks.
“We feel that the 8 axles Liebherr will provide our customers and our team with the most versatile and reliable machine in its class,” said Frank Bardonaro, chief operating officer of Maxim. “As we continuously review the current and future needs of our customers throughout the US, it is clear that the need for large all-terrain cranes will continue to lead the way toward the future and we are confident that this is the best machine in its class.”
The LTM 1650-8.1 is an 8-axles mobile crane with a 650 t capacity. Two boom options are available – 177 ft or 263 ft (54 m or 80 m). It is equipped with Vario Ballast and Vario Base (Liebherr technologies). The LTM 1650-8.1 continues to use Liebherr’s proven and economical single engine concept.
In designing the new crane, Liebherr focused on maximum load capacities. The LTM 1650-8.1 travels with an axle load of 26 400 lb (12 t) complete with the 177 ft (54 m) telescopic boom and the front outriggers. To minimise set-up time, the rear outriggers are installed as a complete support box in a single lift and connected using quick-release couplings.
