The design of the LTM 1300-6.2 saw the first development of an innovative drive concept – the engine in the undercarriage powers the superstructure using a mechanical shaft. This eliminates the need for a second engine. This means one less engine and therefore significantly reduced maintenance costs. The lower weight can be used to increase lifting capacity. On the one hand it is a simple, classic folding jib crane whilst on the other it is a small luffing jib crane on the market for crane operators with a low cost entry point into the luffing jib crane class. It also features high performance, economy and variable boom systems.
