The XCMG model XGC88000 4,000 tonne capacity level crawler crane has performed its first job in Yantai, lifting a propylene tower in Wanhua Industrial Park, China.

The propylene tower weighed 1,680 tonnes and was 118 metres tall and 14.4 m wide. The XGC88000, which has a maximum load moment rating of 88,000 tonne-metres, was configured with an 108 m heavy boom and 33 m fixed jib. A new 1,000 tonne XGW1100 was used alongside the crawler for tailing.

The lift, which was carried out on 5 July 2013, took four hours to complete and was watched by more than 100 project leaders and guests from Sinopec and Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group, the manufacturer said.
