Liebherr sold 14 of its Indian-built flat-top 85 EC-B 5i tower cranes to two major Indian contractors at the BC India construction show in Mumbai in February.

The flat-top offers a maximum load capacity of 5t, and a lifting capacity at the jib head of 1300 kg, with a maximum radius of 50m.

The 85 EC-B 5i offers a streamlined 85 LC tower system with new pin connection, optimised for use with the top crane section.

For climbing inside the building, as well as for external climbing, the 85 LC tower system with 3.9 m tower sections offers a high level of flexibility. Hook heights up to 278 m can be achieved using the climbing system.

Company Sai Infraa Equipments ordered a total of twelve brand-new 85 EC-B 5i's, while the management team of family-owned Gopalan Enterprises signed a contract for two, including one with a climbing system.
