Jaso has launched an 18 tonne capacity luffing jib tower crane designed for compact construction sites.

The J280PA has a 3 tonne capacity at the maximum 60 m jib and represents a move to smaller, yet strong tower cranes at bauma.

The mast section is 2 m square, and designed for easy transportation as it does not require a flat rack container. The jib sections also slide inside the mast.

At 60 m reach the maximum freestanding height is 45.1 m, rising to 56.3 m with a 30 m jib length.

The counter jib is short, at 6.9 m and the ballast is steel rather than the lighter concrete option.

There are one and two fall options. At 1 fall maximum drop is 818 m and maximum capacity is 9 tonnes, while at 2 fall that is halfed and the capacity doubled to 18 tonnes.

Additionally, there is a clamp break in the luffing mechanism as standard, while a clamp in the hoist is optional. The load levelling system allows the hook to be kept in a constant position while the jib is luffed up.
