Raimondi unveils the LR273 luffing jib crane at bauma 2019

Raimondi crane

The latest crane introduction by Raimondi is built for customers that need a long jib, but not the highest tip load.

The Italian manufacturer unveiled the new LR273 luffing jib crane at bauma.

The crane is designed as an option for customers that need an 18-tonne maximum capacity with a lengthy 60-metre jib, but that aren’t seeking the highest maximum tip load.

“This luffer is an excellent compromise between maximum load capacity and maximum tip load. Its parking radius is a major asset to clients working in congested and highly built-up areas,” said Eng. Mauro Masetti, chief commercial officer for Raimondi Cranes.

“Developed fully in compliance with the latest safety regulations; we actually designed the parking radius based on feedback from customers who are looking to refresh their respective fleets with Raimondi’s latest models.”

The LR273 in its standard configuration can work in two, three and four falls, while a single line extension will be offered as an optional add-on.

The crane’s main hoist comes in two versions, both with an optional emergency brake: 67kW and 86Kw. A core characteristic, the luffing movement is delivered via a 75kW motor, while end users will appreciate the control and personalization of the inverter-driven slewing and counter-maneuver capability.

“We have now begun perfecting our system of client-focused products – meaning that we are more customer-centric than ever and that we continue to enhance and evolve our product offering and range of cranes based on what clients need,” Masetti said.

“To continue to expand our market share and have an inviting product landscape, Raimondi is encouraging any potential client to reach out and share their ideal technological requirements; we’d love to have a discussion on how we can best reach our mutual aims.” 

The biggest crane from Raimondi

During bauma, Raimondi also offered an exclusive preview of its largest tower crane to date, the MRT573.

“We decided the best presentation of the MRT573 was at ground level simply to bring people up close and personal with our newest product,” explained Eng. Domenico Ciano, chief operations officer at Raimondi Cranes.

“As Raimondi’s largest-ever crane, it was important to us that our clients could experience the strength and impressive dimensions of the machine.”

The MRT573 can be mounted on a GR5H tower with pin connection or on a GR6L tower with bolt connection, the latter already on show as part of the fully-erected LR273. Visitors to our exhibit were granted access to the slewing platform, and were able to examine the electric panel’s architecture.

“It is worth mentioning that the LR273 and the MRT573 can both be used on the aforementioned towers without a transfer mast, a cost effective and simple solution that we have implemented not yet prevalent in the tower crane marketplace,” Ciano said.
