With over 1,000 units, the 81 K.1 and 65 K.1

are the most successful cranes in the Liebherr

range. The company is optimistic that further

sales will result from the latest upgrades avail-

able from Autumn 2016.

The lifting capacity of both cranes has been increased

by up to 20% and their jibs have been extended by

3 metres. There is now an external cabin available.

The cabin can be installed quickly and easily on any

new K crane using its own load hook.

eration of mid-size wheel loaders that meet all current

emission standards.

steel structures. Productivity is assured with 2.1 m³,
