The 400 tonne capacity class Tadano ATF 400G-6 was equipped with 98 tonnes of counterweight to lift its load portion of 49.5 tonnes at a radius of 15 metres. The 500 tonne capacity class Demag AC 500-2 was equipped with 140 tonnesof counterweight to lift the remaining 88.5 tonnes of the pressure vessel, also with a radius of 15 metres.
