A pair of new lattice boom crawler cranes for the European market will be launched by Hitachi Sumitomo. The Japanese manufacturer will display the cranes for the first time at April's Intermat exhibition in Paris.
The new SCX2800-2 is a 275 tonner and the SCX800 HD-2 is an 80 tonne capacity heavy duty model. The 275 tonner succeeds the SCX2500 and is designed for easy self assembly and transport – maximum component weight is 45 tonnes and maximum width is 3 m, the manufacturer said.
The 80 tonner can be used for clamshell applications and has a 196 kN (20 tonne) line pull winch.
Changes for Europe include the cabin layout with different types of operating levers.
