The prototype of this mega-crane is Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1—— a 750 ton all-road crane, which was launched in 2012, its lifting capacity lays between LTM1500 and 1200-ton LTM11200-9.1. The highlight of LTM 1750-9.1 is that it can conduct long distance driving while the boom remains on the vehicle. The layout of its 9 axles is 3+3+1+2.
This model highly portrays the magnificant appearance of LTM 1750-9.1 crane. The scale of this crane is 1:20, it measures 110cm/43.3inch long, 16cm/6.3inch wide and 22cm/8.66inch high, the height reaches 190cm/74.8ich when the boom is fully extended. This mega-crane weighs 9kg, the net weight plus counterbalance is 11KG. Max lifting capacity reaches 2KG, the turntable can rotate 360 degrees at most.
Driving mode: Front axles 6-wheel steering, detailed V8 engine with moving pistons. Working mode: First, steer and drive the vehicle to the right spot. Then use the outriggers to secure the crane in place. After that, raise the boom and extend the telescopic arm – see how high it reaches. Finally, use the hoist box to carry the cargo and rotate the turntable to adjust position. All of these action are conducted by remote control, not manually. Great for role-playing or just for testing what this mega-crane can do.
Power functions kit: Equips with 5*L motors, 1*XL motor, 6*M motors, 2* 2.4G remote controls, 3* extention cables and 2* 900mAh bluetooth Lithium battries, charging takes about 3 hours.
Improvement compare with Version 1.0 : Upgraded function pack supplies stronger horsepower; a boom support bracket was added on the driving cabin to avoid drooping of vehicle head; enhanced boom raising rod; improved outriggers, which can extend longer thus ensure the vehicle stabler; redesigned turntable, which can rotate smoother; a hoist box was added for lifting convenience; improved paper instruction manual, with more detailed graphic and higher resolution; several bugs in Version 1.0 were resolved;
Extended boom can be added for more powerful function.
Assembly: 7768 pieces in total, the bricks are made of eco-friendly ABS material and compatible with most brands on the market. Comes with detailed paper instruction manual. This is a challenging, tricky work, it requires patience, enthusiasm and concentration to complete. Some engineering experience definitely helps, if you don't have any, you shall gain some through this work.
