Special solutions for bulk handling

For the flexible handling of individual loads or bulk materials, Liebherr offers many machines specially modified for such tasks, for example, its Duty Cycle Crawler Cranes. Liebherr is a leading manufacturer of modern hydraulic crawler cranes. The wide range of equipment and attachments available enables them to be converted rapidly and without difficulty for either cargo or bulk material handling.

Duty Cycle Crawler Cranes Type HS

The wide range of modern Liebherr Hydraulic Crawler Cranes includes machines with lifting capacities between 43.5 t and 300 t. The flexible high performance machines can be equipped with all common types of grabs and draglines and can be operated either on shore or on board a barge in sheltered waters. This provides the user with high flexibility and enables high utilization. As an option the upper structure can be directly mounted onto a barge or ship to remain permanently on the vessel. A wide range of optional equipment can be offered, as for example:

  • a raised operator’s cabin for an unrestricted view into the vessel’s hold
  • an adapter between the crane’s undercarriage and upper structure to raise the boom pivot point
  • an extended safety package with access ladder guards, wide catwalks, additional mirrors and an acoustic travel warning signal
  • additional anti-corrosion coat and hot-dip galvanized cabin

All Liebherr Crawler Cranes are equipped with the modern Litronic® control system and offer precise online load-moment computing to allow maximum use of available load capacities. Low operation costs and high reliability are further significant advantages.
