Zoomlion has announced the first Chinese-manufactured truck crane to be aimed at the European market.

The 35 tonne capacity QY30V is an upgraded version of an existing model with the same model name. It has a 40 m main boom, increased from 34 m, and an underslung jib with a space-saving twin winch, which is another new feature.

It has an American Cummins engine, says Peter Issit, managing director at UK Zoomlion dealer Crowland Cranes, which helped with the design of the new crane.

The crane will be officially launched in the UK in July 2010. It will be presented with the 80 tonne capacity QUY80 crawler crane. The QUY80 has been sold in China since its launch three years ago but its appearance at Bauma was the first time it had been seen on European soil.

It has new features, including upgraded track frame for increased stability. There are also safety features common to European-based cranes such as hand rails.
