An XCMG XGC28000 crawler crane has set a new record after lifting a hydrocracking reactor weighing 1,240.2 tonnes. Complete with the added weight of the slings and other rigging, the total weight of the lift was 1,340 tonnes.

For the lift, the 2,000 tonne capacity crawler was configured with a 60 metre heavy-duty boom, 340 tonnes of turntable counterweight and 11 tonnes of carbody counterweight. A 640 tonne superlift counterweight and 30 metre radius superlift were also used. The load was lifted at 14 metre radius where capacity is 1,577 tonnes. To help complete the lift a Manitowoc 21000 crawler crane provided assistance in tailing.

The lift was completed at the Quanzhou refinery base of Sinopec, China's national oil company. The original record was also held by a XGC28000 crawler crane, which lifted 958 tonnes in Maoming, Guangdong.
