Sany America has launched a mid-range crawler crane, the Sany SCC8150. The crane has a lift capacity of 165 tons, and fills a strategic position between Sany's 110-ton SCC8100 and the 220-ton SCC8200, the company said.
The SCC8150 can be configured with a main boom that reaches up to 269 feet or a fixed jib up to 102 feet. A fuel-efficient, 340-hp (316 kW), Tier 4 interim-certified Cummins engine powers the crane, and a 325-hp (242 kW), Tier 3 Cummins engine also is available.
"The SCC8150 gives contractors a new option in a competitive segment of the market," said Kyle Nape, Sany America." Our new crane delivers a superior combination of control, performance, operator comfort, power and dependability that meets and exceeds the requirements for a machine in this weight class."
The crawler crane's Porsche-designed UltraCab 2 provides operator comfort with enhanced ergonomics, large windows for clear visibility, heat and air conditioning, and well-placed function screens and video monitors. Other features include a boom- elevation device, emergency stop of all functions, two externally mounted cameras to monitor machine operations, aircraft warning light on the main boom and "shove-off" protection that prevents the machine from working unless the operator is seated in the cab.
