Zoomlion unveils new crawler crane
The Zoomlion HCC-80 is the latest edition to its crawler crane range. Weighing in at 72.5tonnes, GCS says the HCC-80 is easy to transport, and is among the first in the industry to meet ANSI standards for safe operation. The crane is also said to be ideal for general construction, bridgework and pile driving applications, as well as oil refinery and power plant work.
Also featuring an optimised boom design and high-strength, imported steel construction, the HCC-80 is said to offer great lifting capacity, strength and reliability in a smaller, more compact crane design. Main boom length ranges from 12metres to 57metres, with the fixed jib length ranging from 6metres to 18metres. Maximum lifting capacity with the fixed jib is 6.88tonnes.
The HCC-80 has a Cummins diesel engine providing, according to GCS, reliable, powerful operation, with a horsepower output of 205 at 1,800 RPM. Further enhancing performance and reliability are additional high-quality components including Linde pumps, a PAT/Hirschmann LMI system, Pfeifer wire rope and Rexroth motors.
During transport, the crawler crane’s side frames and crawler tracks stay on, while the butt section remains in. Additionally, the crane has been designed for easy assembly and disassembly requiring no extra equipment. Using its own mechanisms, the track frame, ballast weight, counterweight and boom frame can be easily installed and dismounted. The track and frame are connected via an easy-to-install hydraulic circular drive pin.
An electronic monitoring system is included to increase safe operation while enhancing the crane’s performance and longevity. The system monitors and displays real-time parameters of crucial items such as the hydraulic circuit’s working pressure, total working time, engine speed, oil pressure and fuel level. Anti-tipping devices have been installed on the HCC-80 for further enhanced safety, as well as a limit-position alarm system for the operating boom. The machine’s electronically-controlled motor offers variable speed control to maximise efficiency with both light and heavy loads.
GCS says the operator’s control cab is built for maximum comfort, safety and ease of operation. Ergonomically-designed features include the control panel, levers, operating handle and dashboard. To provide further comfort, the cab is standard-equipped with adjustable seats and air conditioning. The cab also has the ability to be pitched upward by 20° to improve operator visibility and reduce fatigue.
All Zoomlion cranes are said by GCS to undergo strict load testing including rated, dynamic, static and traveling. They are also CE-certified and meet the ANSI B30.5 standard.
