PARIS, France — Liebherr unveiled another crane model equipped with the new LICCON3 control system: the LTM 1300-6.3 is becoming the LTM 1300-6.4.

Liebherr revealed the LTM 1300-6.4 at Intermat in Paris, which took place from April 24 to 27.

The family of Liebherr mobile cranes with the company’s latest crane design and next-generation LICCON3 control system is growing. Not only will all new crane types receive the new control system, but Liebherr is also upgrading its existing crane types with the new technology. To signify the changes, the last digit of the type designation is incremented by one, such as the LTM 1300-6.3 is now the LTM 1300-6.4. The performance parameters and lifting capacities of the cranes remain unchanged.

LICCON3 crane control system


The third generation of the LICCON control system has new software and programming language as well as a faster data bus, significantly more memory and higher computing power. However, crane operators who are familiar with the previous control system will quickly pick up the new version.

Proven hardware components, such as the mobile operating and display unit BTT, have been adopted. The touchscreen function on the large new display in the superstructure cab means that it is now even easier and more comfortable to control. The way in which the information is shown has also been revised and simplified. In addition, LICCON3 cranes are prepared for telemetry and fleet management as standard. In the future, crane contractors will be able to view and evaluate all the relevant data using the MyLiebherr customer portal.

New driver’s cabin and crane cab

Liebherr is also launching the new driver’s cabin at the same time as the LICCON3 control system. The modern design features a host of improvements for the crane driver. These include the new multifunction steering wheel, side roller blind on the driver’s door, improved instruments and modules as well as new displays.

There is also a new automatic heating and air-conditioning system in both the driver’s cab and the crane operator’s cab. A sun sensor detects strong sunshine and automatically adjusts the heating settings. The lighting packages for the crane cab, the superstructure, the rear of the vehicle, the front headlights and the telescopic boom as well as the lattice fly jib have been optimised and can be operated with LEDs. The benefits of LED technology include a longer service life and superior lighting performance.
