Austrian crane sets new world record

With a total of 89 feet a Liebherr crawler crane lifted the widest tilt-up panel in history.

A remarkable performance has been achieved by a Liebherr crawler crane in the US. The LR 1300 lifted the widest tilt-up panel so far. With a total width of 89 feet the old world record was beaten by six feet and two Inches.

This new record was set in Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, by Citadel Contractors Inc. The 89 feet wide and more than 30 feet tall panel had a weight of approximately 130,000 Pounds.

Among the main advantages of tilt-up construction for end-users are their rapidness and their cost-effectiveness. Techniques for tilt-up construction have been further developed in recent years. Most of the work is done on ground level, thus making it a fast, safe and efficient technique. However, it requires careful planning and a high-performing crane to do the Lifting.
