Liebherr Launches New Hydraulic Luffing Jib Crane, the 195 HC‑LH 6/12 – Video

Liebherr is expanding its product range with its new hydraulic luffing jib crane, the 195 HC‑LH 6/12. The top-slewing crane excels in urban areas. With a minimal working radius of just 3m and an out-of-work position of 10m, the crane can be optimally adapted to construction site conditions.

The hydraulic luffing jib crane combines the familiar performance of Liebherr luffing jibs with powerful hydraulics. The result is a top-slewing crane that can be positioned centrally on site. All of this comes together to make the 195 HC-LH 6/12, with its lifting capacity of up to 12t in 2-fall operation, a unique Liebherr solution.

“We provide a setup that’s strong in all aspects, from transport and assembly through to operation, and can offer our customers an outstanding overall concept for their sites,” says Markus Kinateder, Product Manager at Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH.



The 195 HC-LH 6/12 can be optimally adapted to everyday conditions on site and requires very little space. This adaptability is achieved through being able to install the crane in lift shafts, its reduced out-of-service position and minimal swing radius, and the fact that the cabin is mountable on either side.

A lift shaft installation with subsequent internal climbing is no problem at all using the 16 EC 240 tower system. So, the crane can be centrally positioned on site where it can lift up to 2,550kg at its jib head at maximum radius. Its minimal working radius of just 3m also helps to ensure that all areas on site can be covered from a central point. In practical terms, this means that a smaller crane can be used on site rather than a larger machine that would need to be set up next to the building. Another option alongside the slim 16 EC 240 is the widely used 21 HC 290 tower system, which enables high hook heights and installation of the EasyUp 200 crane driver elevator. Both tower systems come prepared for climbing inside and outside buildings. Combining both systems together with a transition tower section makes it possible to achieve cost-efficient, high tower heights.



Another advantage is that cranes can be positioned closer together when several need to be used on site. This allows more cranes to fit into the available space as and when required. A reduced out-of-service position of 9.6m for jibs 45m or longer makes it all possible. The jib can be extended in five metre increments. At maximum tower height, the out-of-service position measures up to 14.6m. Thought has also been given to tight spaces in terms of the crane’s swing radius: the counter-jib has a swing radius of just 7.9m and its ballast blocks are stackable.

The cabin can be mounted on either the left or right-hand side to meet individual site requirements and building proximity needs. It’s possible to position the crane closer to the building this way, which gives the crane operator a better view of the load and surrounding environment.
