ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. Adds Another  45-USt Liebherr LTC 1045-3.1 at CONEXPO 2014
April 16, 2014—In late 2012, Liebherr launched the first of what many in the industry call a "city crane." Compact and nimble, the LTC 1045-3.1 (45 USt) all-terrain crane is uniquely designed to make it a go-to solution in narrow spaces and when a pick’s sight lines are limited. The ALL Family of Companies has two of the units at work in its industry-leading fleet, and announced at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas, Nev., that it is adding a third unit, taking home the display machine painted with the ALL brand.

What makes the LTC 1045 special is its unique one-cab design. The compact all-terrain crane differs from traditional all-terrain crane design, which, by necessity, has two cabs—one set at the front of the chassis for driving to the job site and the other positioned near the superstructure and utilized for crane operation. The single cab of the LTC 1045-3.1 telescopes forward or back for either driving or crane operations. In addition, while performing crane operations, the cab can be boomed up to elevate the operator to over 25 ft (7.8 m), providing an unparalleled view of the work site.

Michael L. Liptak, president of the ALL Family of Companies, says of the purchase, "This is truly a unique piece of equipment. We received our first city crane in May 2013, and our operators loved it. I’m told that, once customers find out how versatile this crane is, they want to re-rent it to finish the job or use for other jobs. We're adding it to our inventory for its long telescoping boom, high capacities, compact dimensions, and extraordinary maneuverability."

In many cases, the improved vantage point eliminates the need for a second signalperson since the pick and place points are in full view. In still others, it allows the operator a direct view of the signalperson, eliminating the need for radio communications or a second spotter at ground level. For example, consider the benefit for an operator when working on a one- or two-story building. With the LTC 1045-3.1, they can elevate themselves to roof height and easily see a hand signalperson on the roof.

More than just offering a better view, the unit is known as a "city crane" because of where it can go. In fact, "compact" is an understatement. Its chassis length can be reduced to 29.25 ft (8.91 m). Add to that its crab steering, and the LTC 1045 becomes perhaps the most maneuverable crane in its class. Ideal for tight city conditions or crowded job sites, the city crane can offer a minimum turning radius of only 20 ft (6.1 m). It is also low enough to pass through 10-ft-high doorways.

The 45-ton crane offers state-of-the-art technology for more practical operation. Its telescoping cab offers the best visibility for road driving positions and crane operations when compared to any two-cab crane. And, for rental customers, the increased productivity and job site safety result in immeasurable savings.
