Liebherr displayed its LR 1600/2, 600 ton crawler crane at BC 2011.According to Mr. A.K. Somani, Representative Director, Liebherr India Private Limited: "The crane with its versatile features and 10 percent more lifting capacity as compared to a contemporary product of similar class, is most suitable for Indian applications.” He explained: "Irrespective of weight and size, the crane is ideal for transportation as jib sections can be inserted in main boom section for transportation. Besides, the crane can self load and unload its superstructure and self fit its crawlers, thus making it ideal for working in rural and altogether remote areas in India, where getting skilled manpower is quite critical. The crane comes with special attachments, making it ideal for wind mill construction projects.” Liebherr handed two LR 1600/2 two Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited for construction of 800 MW power projects. As per Mr. Somany, the crane can be used for construction of thermal power plans from 500MW-800 MW.

Main boom of the crane is 108 metres without derrick. It can be extended to 144 metres at which it can lift 83 tons at eight metres working radius. Luffing jib is 96 metres. Combination with main boom and luffing jib is 188 metres. With main boom the derrick attachment is138 metres and fixed jib is 36 metres. 190tons is the main counterweight and 65 tons at the carbody. With derrick attachment, the main counterweight can be 150 tons and 65 tons at the carbody. The derrick ballast can be provided at as tray type and wheeled bogie type.

It can be used with main boom and luffing jib without derrick configuration. While working continuous, change of derrick radius can be undertaken.
