Demag is also showing a new 300t crawler, the CC 1800-1, which follows on from the CC 2800 and CC 2500 models. ‘Significant improvements’ in the speed and efficiency of all the working motions are claimed. The hoist unit, boom, and swing gear can now operate at a 50% higher speed and the propulsive power of the crawlers have been increased by more than 15%.
A new crawler drive unit has been designed to minimise the risk of it getting clogged with earth and stones. A more spacious cabin has been added, with air conditioning and a camera system to monitor the winches, both as standard.
