127130 650 tlx

Tokyo, Japan-based crane manufacturer, Hitachi Sumitomo Heavy Industries Construction Crane Co., Ltd., (HSC), has launched the 650TLX - a 65 tonne capacity telescopic crawler crane - onto the global market. According to HSC, the machine is designed to suit a broad range of applications while also offering good transportability and safety.

The 650TLX has a high strength, lightweight, four-section telescopic boom that HSC said is designed for foundation work, although the company stressed it can be used for both tough or delicate jobs.

The crane has a powerful hydraulic system and is compatible with high-load attachments such as augers and vibro-equipment. It also has a third winch with an optional free-fall mechanism. Another optional extra is a self-assembly system for the crawler, counter weight and boom.

Safety functions offered include a warning alarm, an auto-drum lock, a swing restriction unit, and a mode select switch for switching between functions. A large display panel includes all the most relevant information in an easy-to-view layout, HSC claimed. A remote sensor system has been installed as standard as a preventative maintenance measure; the sensor automatically checks the machine’s condition, said HSC.
