Sany unveils 1,000 tonne AT

Chinese crane manufacturer Sany Heavy Equipment has unveiled its largest All Terrain telescopic crane to date, the SAC 303, a nine axle 1,000 tonner. The crane was shown to a small group of employees and dignitaries yesterday after it rolled off of the production line in Changsha, Hunan province.

A reader has sent us a few photos taken with a mobile phone which will give an impression of the new crane. At first glance it has some similarities to Liebherr’s flagship the LTM11200-9.1 with a nine axle carrier and a similar swing out outrigger design. The main boom will be removed for road travel and has a length of 100 metres.

Outriggers are very similar in design to Liebherr's LTM12000

The boom looks like it has seven sections and is likely to be close to 100m

For now that’s all we have, expect to see it on display at Bauma in late April.

Sorry correction, It's Liebherr's LTM11200 not 12000.

Does seem rather strange that it's so very close in resemblance to Liebherr's LTM12000? even to the way the Main boom has two different lengths, Wonder if it's just a coincidence? Just like XCMG's 500Tonne mobile looks almost the same as Liebherr's LTM1500 8.1?. I know they say 'If it work's use it' but this is going a bit far
