The perfect crane for everybody

Looking for a used crane from Liebherr?
Whether you want nearly new or old, large or small, with a lattice or telescopic boom – we are sure to have the perfect used crane to suit your needs.

Our machines feature tested quality, short lead times and low finance. Liebherr cranes are durable and retain their value well. Depending on the crane and requirement, used cranes may be sold as seen, can be repaired or completely refurbished and supplied with a warranty.
With technical expertise and decades of experience, our repair specialists spruce up the cranes to the level required by the customer. We upgrade fairly recent machines so that they feature the latest technology. That makes them nearly new and a genuine alternative to buying a new crane.

We also have experience, for example, with cranes that have suffered damage through accidents. We are one of the largest used crane dealers in the world and as such, we can provide you with professional support and can even deal with your insurers if required. A good deal for you.

FAQs

What is the useful life of a crawler crane? ›

New crawler cranes are expected to have a useful life of at least 10 years at around 2000 hrs annual usage before major parts are replaced, but can have a much longer life if well maintained, and many major manufacturers expect a useful life to exceed 30,000 hrs or more.

Can you pick and carry with a crawler crane? ›

What are cranes used for? ›

A crane is a machine that is used to lift and move heavy loads, machines, materials, and goods for a variety of purposes. They are used in all different sectors of industry, from construction to manufacturing to shipbuilding and material loading.

What materials are used to make a crane? ›

Because they need to be trusted to lift immense weights, high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steels are the primary material used in crane construction. Not only are they easier to weld, but these steels contain a low level of carbon, which increases their durability.

How does a junkyard crane work? ›

So, when the crane is lowered into a pile of scraps, the electricity is turned on, attracting steel scraps onto the magnets. The crane then moves the scraps into the desired location, and the electricity is switched off so the scrap steel falls off the magnet.

Do cranes pair for life? ›

They mate for life—which can mean two decades or more—and stay with their mates year-round. Juveniles stick close by their parents for 9 or 10 months after hatching. The earliest Sandhill Crane fossil, estimated to be 2.5 million years old, was unearthed in the Macasphalt Shell Pit in Florida.

What is the disadvantage of a crawler crane? ›
