Dubai based crane and heavy haulage company Al Faris has finished taking delivery of four large Liebherr lattice crawler cranes with capacities of 400, 500, 600 and 800 tonnes.
The latest model to be delivered was a 500 tonne LR 1500 which has a maximum lift height of 164 metres, a maximum radius of 144 metres and an overall width of 9.1 metres. It also offers compact transport dimensions with the largest components weights no more than 45 tonnes and offering widths no more than three metres.

It delivers very good lifting capacities whilst having compact, transport-friendly dimensions.
