LR 1500 - Powerful, smart, compact.

The LR 1500 crawler crane delivers the lifting capacities of the 500 tonne (550 USt) crawler crane class throughout its operating range whilst having the dimensions and component weights which have previously been normal in the 400 tonne (440 USt) class. It features compact dimensions and can be transported throughout the world without restrictions due to its components having a maximum weight of 45 t (99,200 lb) and a maximum width of 3 m (9 ft). The LR 1500 cannot just be transported easily and at low cost, but is also simple to set up and operate. Its powerful main hoist unit can handle all hoists up to the maximum lifting capacity. This means there is no need for a second winch in dual mode for heavyweight hoists.
