New 650 and 100 tonne crawler cranes from Sany
By Euan Youdale22 April 2009
Sany will launch new 650 and 100 tonne capacity crawler cranes by the end of the year.
The 650 tonne SCC6500WE will initially be aimed at the Chinese market but exports may follow in the next three years.
Zhu Wenkui, Sany Science and Technology international sales director, said the model was designed primarily for the erection of 3 MW wind turbines. It currently offers a maximum main boom of 84 m, plus a 12 m fixed jib. It has a 7 m retractable chassis, while the engine passes Euro Stage III emission standards.
"We want to sell to the Chinese domestic market. Once our product and technique is perfect then we will look to the export market," added Wenkui.
In contrast, the 100 tonne capacity heavy duty SCC1000HD crawler will be aimed at export markets across the world immediately, ranging from Europe to South East Asia. Typical applications will be foundation work and material handling, with the addition of a grab.
Again, the engine passes Euro Stage III emission laws. The machine will also have a maximum 3 m width for easier transportation.
More details about both these cranes will follow shortly.
