The design and development of the whole series have been based again on Linden Comansa's modular system. That is why most jib sections are interchangeable between the cranes of the series. The tower sections are not only interchangeable with the cranes of the same series but with the models of other series of Flat-Top cranes too.
Among the many advantages of the series, stands out the easiness for both erection and transportation. These cranes are designed with the hoist mechanism at the front, under the jib and near the cabin.
Regarding technological characteristics, both cranes bring in the new features included on the LCL 190: the electronic coordination between the luffing and hoisting mechanisms that, with a push-button, allows to move the load horizontally when operating only the luffing movement (popularly known by "level luffing," the hydraulic push and retention system with a progressive force application on the jib in relation to the luffed-in radius, allowing a smooth movement; the travel control of the luffing movement; and an anti loosening system for the luffing cable tension.
The launch of this series of luffing-jib cranes, with the 8 meter base altogether, is another step forward from Linden Comansa in its going for its modular system, already used on all tower cranes. Furthermore, the series include many technical and structural solutions that improve the performance of the cranes and optimize the retail price, achieving a completely new and highly competitive series of cranes.
At the same time, Linden Comansa has seized the opportunity to test the prototype of the new Panoramic XL cabin, which will soon be available as an option in the LCL series of luffers and LC2100 series of tower cranes. It keeps the same advantages of the standard Panoramic cabin (acoustic insulation, full view of the load and work area, tinted glass, etc.), but it is half a meter longer, which means more space for the comfort of the crane operator. Furthermore, it includes a small refrigerator, an air handling unit (instead of an air conditioning) and space to place a microwave or any other small appliance to improve the worker's comfort.
