Today’s cranes are a modernized version of Greeks ancient cranes. They used these powerful machines to transport large stones when building magnificent temples. Right after the Greeks, Romes and Egyptians relied on this powerful tool when building strong empires. Cranes have changed a lot during the years. In terms of size, design and power. For starter, cranes were not mobile in the past. That’s something that modern manufacturers take credit for. Not only that these cranes can lift heavy loads but can also transport from place to place.
Cranes believe it or not can lift entire ships. Their lifting capacity can not compare with any other machine. The lifting capacity of the crane ranges from model to model. According to the maximum lift height, Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 is one of the strongest cranes in the world. Consider this model, when looking for powerful crane models.
As the name suggests, Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1, was produced by the German company Liebherr Group. This company counts as one of the most powerful and reliable mobile crane manufacturers. And for a reason. Liebherr LTM is not only world’s strongest and most powerful mobile crane but also features the longest telescopic boom in the world.
Let’s take a close look into the features of this mobile beast. First and foremost, Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 can lift up to 1,200 tons (that would be the same like 12 adult blue whales or 700 automobiles). Secondly, this crane holds world’s record for telescoping boom ( it can reach up to 100 meters). Its lattice jib has the power to lift up to 190 meters. Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 is said to be the monster, given the fact that it can hold over 200,000 kilos. In order to understand this machine better, you must know that Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 works on a 6-cylinder 240kW engine that runs a 9-axle carrier. Let’s just make it clear that this crane is world’s most powerful mobile crane in. It is not the strongest when compared to stationary cranes. But, people sure admire this crane for its ability to transport enormously heavy loads without overturning.
