The LTM 1060/2 is a 60 tonne 4-axle crane.  To see a picture of the real machine click here.


The model comes in a two piece polystyrene box held together by a picture sleeve in the normal Liebherr style.  The model is protected well and the review model had no transport damage.  There are no instructions provided.


The carrier is a well detailed casting with good step details and detail on the carrier deck.  The driving cab has lights with tiny lenses and the detail within the cab looks quite good.  A spare tyre is fixed to the rear of the carrier deck.  The deck also includes positioning points for the separately removable counterweight.  The model lacks wing mirrors and surprisingly has no orange beacon lights.  Also there is no loop on the front of the carrier to attach the hook during transport, although it can be fixed to the carrier underframe.  The outrigger beams and pads look good but are made of plastic.

The crane body has very good handrail details cast in with a good cab which has internal control levers and a screen visible.  At the rear the Liebherr name is part of the casting and painted.  The main boom is 5-section and telescopes well.  The pulleys on the boom head are plastic with some of them being moulded pairs rather than individual pulleys.  The fly jib is very good.  It connects to the boom head via the usual pin system and attaches to the boom side with removable plastic brackets during transport.  In fact the model also looks good without the fly jib, so a couple of transport configurations are possible.  The hook block is a good metal version with three pulleys, and a double hook.


All axles on the model are steerable, with the front and rear axle pairs linked together.  A good hard lock can be obtained which looks very realistic.  The main crane functions can be reproduced such that the model can be posed in a variety of ways.  The winch can be operated by turning it with a finger - there is no winding handle, and the model looks much better without one.

The crane cab can be tilted to aid the operator when lifting loads at height and the counterweight can also be removed by unscrewing the retaining pins.  The fly jib can be fixed and operated in folded and unfolded modes although it cannot be offset at an angle as can the fly jibs in some other models.


This is a very good quality model which looks very good.  The casting and paintwork are impressive.


The model is good value for money.


This is a very well executed model.  Minor improvements could be made by adding detail in some areas and more functionality to the fly jib.


The model was introduced in 2000 and has been produced in many different colours.  The model was superceded in 2005 by the introduction of the LTM 1070.4.1 (model number 2100).
