The boom foot width and boom width, as well as the bracing strength, have been increased to improve the strength of the boom itself, the company said.
To save fuel and reduce exhaust and carbon dioxide emissions, an idle stop function is fitted on the new-generation 210 kW Stage IIIB Isuzu engine.
According to HSC, mobility of the new crawler crane has also been enhanced. Transportation width is 2.99 m for easier and cheaper transit. Furthermore, a new winch system offers a 12 tonne rated line pull and there is a new brake system.
Applications for the new model include civil engineering, construction and material handling.
The crawler crane will be showcased at Bauma 2013, Munich.
