The high performance can be achieved thanks to the superboom and hydraulic SL jib. In comparison, the crane body is more compact compared to Kato’s own class of 51-ton rough terrain crane, e.g SL600 or SL600-II. Not to mention that the operating weight of the SL650R is lighter than Kato’s 60-ton class capacity rough terrain crane, SL600R.

The SL650R is also designed to have a maximum derrick of 84°, releasing the crane’s potential to carry out a nearer lifting operation. In addition, Furthermore, the SL650R was then the longest boom configuration available in its class. Kato has equipped the rough terrain with a new winch type, allowing a line pull of maximum 5 ton.

The notable feature for SL650R is the three section telescopic hydraulic jib, SL jib, that raises maximum hook height to 58,6 metres from the 44.5 metres main boom.
