Read on to find out more about the features of both heavy lift mobile cranes and why you should consider them for your project.

What Type of Mobile Crane is The Liebherr LTM 1750?

The LTM 1750 is a heavy-hitter 9-axle mobile crane that has a wide range of configurations and specifications.

The 9-axle LTM 1750-9.1 can carry its complete telescopic boom for driving on public roads. Due to its high lifting capacities and variable room system, it can cover a wide range of jobs in industry, infrastructure and the energy sector. The crane achieves significant increases in lifting capacity using its Y-guying. The all-terrain crane is designed to ensure particularly short setup times and maximum mobility. The extensive comfort and safety equipment, such as lifting capacity table for various wind speeds, round off the concept for the LTM 1750-9.1.

The main features of the LTM 1750 are:

  • Heavy lifting capacity of 800t
  • Fast, easy setup with small space requirements due to self-erection capabilities
  • Lifting capabilities tabled for three wind speeds
  • Flexible support system using VarioBase with enhanced safety
  • Suitable for global mobility and driving on any roads
  • Extensive, modular boom system for every kind of application

What Type of Mobile Crane is The Liebherr LG 1750?

The LG 1750 from Liebherr is a lattice boom mobile crane that combines the flexibility of a crawler crane with the high speed of a mobile crane. This means it combines the benefits of two crane types in a single concept. 

It uses a crane turntable and boom system together with an eight-axle chassis of the very latest design with speed-dependent rear-axle steering. That makes the lattice boom mobile crane ideal for fast erection work for wind power, industrial construction or infrastructure work.

The main features of the LG 1750 are:

  • Has a genuinely powerful lattice boom which has been taken rom the crawler crane and is suitable for a wide range of hoisting work.
  • Balanced, and self-levelling for safe hoisting work
  • Truly mobile to reach any site
  • Slimline design for easy travelling
  • Easy to transport and drive
  • Unique design combining the power of a lattice boom with the benefits of a mobile crane

What Are The Differences in Specs Between The Liebherr LG 1750 & LTM 1750? 

The main difference is that one crane is a lattice boom mobile crane and the other is just a mobile crane. Both are heavy-hitters in the mobile crane space and offer heavy lifting capabilities. The main differences between the LG 1750 and the LTM 1750 can be seen in the differences in technical data, as tabled below:

What Applications Are Both Crane Types Best Suited for?

The LG 1750 offers flexibility with power, the perfect symbiosis of two worlds. As such, it has seen much success in efficient erection in the wind power, industrial, construction and infrastructure sectors.

The LTM 1750 offers a wide range of uses with a very powerful telescopic boom. Thanks to its high lifting capabilities and variable boom configurations, it is ideal for jobs in industries like infrastructure and energy.

Which is More Powerful Between The Liebherr LG 1750 Compared to The Liebherr LTM 1750?

When it comes to power, experts generally compare the power of heavy-duty machines like these mobile cranes based on their loading capacities. As you can see from the table, the LG 1750 has a maximum load capacity of 750t whilst the LTM 1750 offers a maximum load capacity of 800t. Enabling the LTM 1750 to just pip the LG 1750 to the post when it comes to load capacity. However, there are many other elements to consider before you can decide the winner – radius, engine and kw power.
