International crane manufacturer Sennebogen has launched a new duty cycle crane designed for water engineering and well construction or pipe installation.
The company said the new model is compact, has multifunctional applications and can be assembled faster than any other duty cycle crane. The 624 uses a foldable box-type boom that can be assembled into its transport position in three simple steps. This allows the machine to not only be used in the tightest spaces, but it can also be transported very fast from one construction site to the next, the company said.
The boom can be extended to a maximum length of 19 metres. Two 6 tonne free fall winches in the upper carriage provide the necessary tractive force. The individually adjustable free fall brake makes the operation simple.
With an operating weight of 27 tonnes, the 624 duty cycle crane opens up a multitude of potential applications. Due to its low operating weight, the machine can be easily installed on pontoons or barges and employed for all types of water conservation applications and maintenance tasks for which, for instance, hooks or rope grabs are required, the company said.
Standard features on the 624 include the new Multicab 2 design that “complies with the highest ergonomic requirements”, a concave windshield for an optimum front view and a hinged reaer window.
