The ‘Tough One’: Liebher launches new 205 EC-B 10 flat-top crane

Liebherr has introduced the latest crane in its EC-B ‘Tough One’ series, the 205 EC-B 10. This new model closes the gap between the company’s 172 EC-B 8 and 220 EC-B 10.

The 205 EC-B 10 is capable of lifting up to 2,100 kg at its head with a jib length of 65 m. The crane provides a maximum load capacity of 10,000 kg at full jib length with a radius of up to 18 m. The jib comes in 2.5 m sections.

Launched in June 2021, the 205 EC-B 10 is designed with a 45 kW hoist unit. The crane has a freestanding hook height of up to 54.4 m with 16 EC 240 tower system (system dimension: 1.6 m), and maximum freestanding hook height of 71.1 m with 21 HC 290 tower system (system dimension: 2.1 m).

The 205 EC-B 10 features a compact design. Its slewing section can be transported together with the full jib and ballast using just four transport units. As the transport units are not used to full capacity, there is also space available for tower sections or central ballast. In addition, the use of the time-tested pickaback system for counter-jib transport enables efficient, safe and economical assembly in just a few lifts.

The new flat-top model delivers further advantages during assembly. Slidable pins are used for connecting the slewing platform with the jib and counter-jib when assembling the crane’s upper section. Thus hammering is no longer required. This ensures not only safer, but also significantly more economical and convenient assembly.

For operator comfort and safety on the construction site, the 205 EC-B 10 is fitted with the LiCAB cabin. From November 2021, the crane will also be equipped with the TC-OS multi-touch display, which is already available in the 125 K model.

According to Liebherr, the first new 205 EC-B 10 cranes have already been sold in France and Italy.
