The most powerful mobile harbour crane

According to Liebherr, the LHM-800 is the most powerful mobile harbor crane in the world. Owing to its huge dimensions, the crane handles large freighters with a width of up to 22 rows of containers. Thanks to its maximum lifting capacity of over 300 tons, the crane is particularly suitable for the handling of heavy industrial goods. The bulk cargo capacity of this giant is also unique at 2,300 tons per hour.
