The first in a new line of self-assembling, lattice-boom crawler cranes is the 330-ton-capacity SCC8300. Powered by a Cummins QSM11 Tier 3 engine, the unit delivers 400 horsepower at 1,800 rpm. It features full open-loop hydraulic power transmission with electrical controls as well as a high-visibility operator’s cab with ergonomic layout. According to the company, the cranes will be tested to ANSI B30.5 standards, with third-party verification.
