Spectacular crane launches at Bauma China
27 November 2012
A 3,600 tonne capacity crawler, 2,000 tonne capacity all terrain and an 800 tonne capacity lattice truck crane were just some of the highlights at the Bauma China exhibition. The show, in Shanghai 27 to 30 November, boasted an amazing collection of new cranes from Chinese and other manufacturers.
Taking the lead on capacity at the show was the Sany SCC86000A lattice boom crawler crane. The maximum load moment rating of the double boom design crane on four crawler tracks is 86,000 tonne-metres.
From an initial brief walkaround on the first day of the show, some other cranes there included, also from Sany, a telescopic tower type crane for wind turbine erection, with the upper works from an all terrain that resembles the Grove GTK. Zoomlion also displayed a new wind turbine erection crane with vertical telescoping lattice mast and lattice luffing jib. Its maximum load moment was given as 3,000 tonne-metres.
In addition to large all terrains from XCMG there was the XCL800, an 800 tonne capacity lattice boom truck crane on eight axle carrier. Also on show was the Chinese manufacturer’s first foray into the tower crane market with the luffing jib XGTL1600-100. Other cranes on show included a 400 tonne-metre knuckle boom and a 200 tonne capacity rough terrain.
