Liebherr LTM 1500

Windhoist have been using the LTM1500 to erect wind turbines since the company began. We now operate 2 of these machines with both 50m and 84m boom inserts and this model has proven to be hugely successful and efficient for the installation of wind turbines.

The eight-axle LTM 1500-8.1 is equipped with a 7-section, 84 m telescopic boom, the longest telescopic boom in the world at one time. The lifting capacities are increased considerably due to the jib-suspension. The lattice jib, reaching lengths of up to 91 m, extends the operating range of the 500-tonner to 145 m hoisting height and 108 m reach.
