January-February 2017 43 suppliers news continued downs, and give peace of mind when orders become time-sensi- tive," said Ryan Schuller-Rach, gear product manager. "We have developed a process to make it as convenient as possible for our customers, and plan to improve the lead times and grow the port- folio of offerings within our standard lead times even more." Examples of products that are offered with a four-week lead time include V-Class sizes 107-167, standard TA taper bushings, single and double-ended shafts, shaft fans, couplings, coupling guards, and package offerings such as the alignment-free option, Falk Reliability Package, and condition monitoring. Additional options are listed and offered under lead times of six, eight, 10, and 12 weeks. ALL Pre-orders Liebherr Rough-terrain Cranes Liebherr has re-entered the rough-terrain market. Knowing their reputation for quality, and impressed by the new line's ca- pabilities and robust safety features, the ALL Family of Cos. has pre-ordered 15 machines. The LRT 1090-2.1 is a 100-metric-ton full-power boom crane, set to debut at the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/ AGG show March 7–11. It blends the latest in safety with the reli- ability and innovation for which Liebherr is known. The manufac- turer's exclusive VarioBase outrigger monitoring system enables each support to be extended to a different length while automat- ically delivering support status information to the operator. It's ideal for maintaining safety and flexibility in the tight spaces of- ten encountered in today's urban and industrial job sites. It also allows for greater capacity when lifting over the supports. "With VarioBase, ALL can do what used to be impossible," said Hutton Strader, business development specialist for ALL. "Imagine having the outriggers fully retracted on one side and fully extended on the other, while still having the crane allow for full capacity when it swings to the extended side. The LRT 1090-2.1 can do that." The crane seamlessly incorporates forward-thinking safety features into a sleek, modern package. The flat deck, electrically extendable cab platform, and multiple ladders minimize the risk of fall injuries. Controls are intuitive and easy to understand. The attachment of the counterweight and installation of the jib are ful- ly monitored by the crane during setup. ALL orders 15 100-mt Liebherr LRT 1090-2.1 cranes.
