A 2,200 ton capacity Zoomlion QAY2000 all-terrain crane has completed overload testing on the testing ground at the Chinese manufacturer's Quantang Industrial Park. In late October a test was carried out giving a load moment of 6,000 tonne-metres, the manufacturer said. In November, another 825-ton load was added to the test load, increasing the load moment to 7,500 tonne-metres, the manufacturer said.
The 9-axle all-terrain crane, which has an additional three axle auxiliary drive unit, weighs 358 tons. It was first shown at the Bauma China exhibition at the end of 2012.
