Twenty years ago, Liebherr-Werk Ehingen made the decision to focus its research and development efforts on the LTM all-terrain and LR crawler crane product lines. With the attention placed on growing these offerings, the company discontinued its LTL rough-terrain crane production, of which it had built about 430 machines in the 25- to 80-tonne range. Today, the company offers 38 different cranes in its LTM and LR product lines.

This week, I visited Skyjack, where I learned that the company will be introducing an 80-something foot articulating boom lift, a 5,000-lb. telehandler, and a 12,000-lb. telehandler in the next few months. Although details about the new machines were not yet available, the news that they are coming is exciting.
