The LTR 1220 exceeds the telescopic crawler cranes offered by the competition with regard to the capacity as well as to the boom length. The crawler chassis offers an extraordinary off-road mobility as well as maneuverability and thus is well drivable.
Additionally the full load can be walked with the crane. The LTR 1220 offers the advantage that high loads can be telescoped with the boom, which generally is impossible with a lattice boom. As the crane contrary to a mobile crane must not be supported it can be fast relocated on the job site and immediately is again ready for operation.
