CAT and Soilmec confirm agreement

Caterpillar and Solimec have confirmed their plan to jointly develop a range of foundation cranes. The agreement follows the launch at Bauma of the 65 tonne Soilmec SC-65 lattice boomed crawler crane which was designed and built in collaboration with CAT.

Since then the machine has gone on to complete the final phases of its field validation programme and has now accumulated a large number of successful hours in a demanding working environment within a Trevi Group managed Job site.

The Soilmec SC-65 was developed in partnership with CAT


The Job site is controlled by a Soilmec sister company, facilitating the capture of operator feedback which has, says the company, been utilised to further improve the machines design characteristics.

The two partners in the project say that the cooperation leverages Soilmec’s expertise in the foundation sector with Caterpillar’s ability to bring together an extensive range of world class components, systems and technologies supported on a global basis.

The SC-85 will lift 65.7 tonnes at 3.5 metres


It is planned that the new crane range will be extended include further models with capacities of between 60 and 200 tonnes. They will initially be distributed via Soilmec dealers, but will also be made available, through separate agreements, for future distribution by those Caterpillar dealers who have demand within their sales territory.
