Impressed with the Liebherr 81.1k Self Erecting Tower Crane


The crane sales manager at Sparrow Crane Hire is impressed with the Liebherr 81.1k Self Erecting Tower Crane. A 48m jib length - Load Plus allows 1350kgs at 48m radius and with maximum inserts allows an incredible 40.4m height under the hook, the standard height under hook is 26m, and with a 2.75m slew radius (or 3.5m slew radius) and 4.5m x 4.5m outrigger spread centre to centre.

The new 2023 model below is being installed by Sparrow Crane Hire (with an independent inspector is overseeing the process of course). Our engineers are Manufacturer trained and Certified, in the installation of the Liebherr 81.1k having completed a comprehensive one-week Factory training course in Germany in June this year, and then a second course thanks to factory support of Liebherr GB. This type of crane has a good future for our UK Construction Customers due to the reaches, it can position a 2tn load, and 6tn load to 14m radius.
