The 30 tonne Kato SR300LX

The SR-300LX has a four-section hydraulic round boom, that extends from 9.35 metres to 30.5 metres, and a 13 metre super long luffing jib.

Its 30 tonne maximum capacity is available at a 3 metre radius. The maximum boom lifting height is 31.2 metres. The jib’s maximum lifting capacity is 3.5 tonnes at 75 degrees and the crane uses a Mitsubishi 6M60-TL engine.

An ACS (Automatic Crane System) includes an automatic safety control that responds to any unexpected changes in operating configurations, while a range of limiting functions are designed to increase safety during operation.

The ACS has a colour LCD and provides illustrated key switches for quick identification of their functions for each operation.

The crane can be specified with a winch view camera, ACS outside indicator, a slewing warning buzzer, a fan, an AM/FM radio, a fire extinguisher, a KATO Crane Operation Recorder (K・COR), and an anemometer.

The carrier can be specified with a spark arrester, a rear-view camera, and a right-hand side view camera.
