Lego Liebherr LTM 1090 4.1 Crane Sarens

That’s how long it took builder Dirk Klijn to design, engineer and construct this utterly spellbinding Sarens-liveried Liebherr LTM 1090 4.1 crane, in full road configuration with boom extension and 14 tons of counterweight.

Seventeen working motorised functions are controlled by no less than five third-party SBrick devices, making the Liebherr one of the most advanced Lego models that this site had ever featured, and if that wasn’t enough the model also features all-wheel suspension, a manually folding boom jib and two highly detailed accessible cabins.

Dirk’s model is also one of the most visually realistic creations we’ve ever found too, with a wealth of superb detailing further enhanced by custom decals produced by previous bloggee JaapTechnic, and full LED lighting.

Big Erection

Lego Liebherr Remote Control Crane

TLCB favourite ShineYu is back, and this time he’s brought a truly massive erection – an enormous, fully RC, and fully working, Liebherr LTM 1350 all-terrain crane.

Measuring almost a meter long and weighing over 10KG, ShineYu’s creation is of genuinely epic proportions, so much so that photographing it must’ve been a real challenge (we’ve even relaxed our ‘exclude any clutter from shot‘ rule to accommodate it!).

The model is driven by four XL Motors with two Medium Motors controlling the four steering axels. A further Medium Motor rotates the crane turnable whilst another two XLs take care of the boom elevation and extension. A final two XL Motors power the lifting winch. All of that power means that ShineYu’s LTM can lift a load of up to 2KG to 2 meters using unmodified official LEGO parts.

You can all the details of this incredible build at the Eurobricks discussion forum, where there’s also an extensive image gallery and a link to a video of the crane in action.

Enormous Erection

Lego Liebherr LTM 1750 9.1 Northwest Crane

Huib van der Hart, aka LiftingBricks, likes to go big. So big in fact that LEGO don’t make wheels tough enough. His latest creation is this truly enormous Liebherr LTM 1750 9-axle crane and, apart from those wheels, it’s all LEGO. Six Power Functions XL motors power the drive, with another six Servos controlling the nine steering axles.

There’s more to come too, as currently the top half is a static display piece, but soon a further suite of Power Functions motors will bring life to the crane itself. You can see more of this remarkable creation, complete with sponsorship by Kanye West’s daughter*, on Flickr via the link above, and look out for the next stage of this build later in the year.

Massive Erection

Lego Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1

This absolutely enormous Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 crane was suggested to us via the Feedback page, and it comes from Flickr builder and TLCB newcomer Dawid Szmandra.

Lego RC Crane Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1

Dawid’s stunning replica of the LTM utilises LEGO’s Power Functions system for a wide range of different movements, including drive, steering, boom elevation, extension, rotation, winching, and deployment of the outriggers and stabiliser feet – there are eleven motors in all! It’s a good thing then that the Elves didn’t find this before we did or there would have been much havoc in the office today.

You can see all of the (excellent) images at Dawid’s Flickr photostream via the link above, but to see what his Lego Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 can really do you’ve got to watch the video below – if you think it looks big in the image above you ain’t seen nothing yet!

Mr. Blue Sky

Lego Liebherr Crane

This enormous chunk of Blue is the work of TLCB favourite Nick Barrett, and it’s mini-figure scale. Yup, that’s just how big a Liebherr LTM mobile crane is – even in mini-fig form it’s 10 studs wide and very very long. Nick has used the size well, engineering in all the working functions you’d expect to find on a model of a much larger scale, including progressive rate steering, working stabilisers, and of course a fully extending, raising and lowering boom. Nick’s Liebherr crane was suggested to us by a reader, and you can see more on both MOCpages and Flickr.
