Sany ships 4,000 tonne crawler

Chinese crane manufacturer Sany has unveiled its latest heavy lift crawler crane, the 4,000 tonne SCC40000A, at a ceremony held at its production facility in Huzhou, China.

We do not yet have a full specification document for the new crane, but according to information provided by the company, it has a maximum load moment of 90,000 tonne/metres, suggesting that it might be rated at around 22 metres radius. In comparison Liebherr’s 3,000 tonne LR13000 has a load moment of 65,000 tonne/metres.
