The PC 3800-1 Pedestal Crane is a version of the Demag 650-metric-ton-capacity CC 3800-1 lattice boom crawler and is designed to provide access to job sites previously not reachable with a standard crawler model. The PC 3800-1 can reduce the amount of time needed to prepare a job site for crane operation.
Features include hydraulically extendable and foldable outriggers, as well as increased lifting performance in several configurations, (or requires less counterweight for the same or slightly higher lifting capacities). A specially developed adapter allows connecting the carbody (center pot) of the crane to a self-propelled modular trailer or axle lines, which are commonly found on jobs involving heavy lifts.
The PC 3800-1 can be purchased as a complete crane, or the carrier only can be purchased as a retrofit option for the Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane and its predecessor, Superlift 3800. The Quick Connection system allows efficient switching between crawlers and pedestal carrier.
