What's New In Plant & Equipment

Hitachi Sumitomo SCX800A-3 crawler craneHitachi Sumitomo SCX800A-3 crawler crane

Hitachi Sumitomo Heavy Industries Construction Crane Co., Ltd. (HSC) has launched the SCX800A-3 80-tonne capacity hydraulic crawler crane. The new model is equipped with an engine that complies with EU Stage IV and US Tier 4 exhaust emission regulations. It has been designed to offer customers a lower cost of ownership due to its exceptional reliability.

It was featured on the stand of the company's UK dealer, NRC Plant Ltd, during Vertikal Days where it was sold to Donegan Civil Engineering.

The SCX800A-3 is a compact design that gives it the smallest rear-end radius in its class making it ideal for working safely in confined spaces and narrow job sites.

The powerful new Cummins QSB6.7 engine features an auto-idle stop function, which prevents fuel wastage, and reduces exhaust and CO2 emissions.

The winch has an environmentally friendly design. Using the eco-winch mode ensures economical operation with low fuel consumption. In addition to the standard 7 t rated line pull winch, an 11 t rated high line pull winch is available as an optional extra.

Safety was an important factor in the design of the SCX800A-3, which features a swing restriction device, swing brake pedal and folding upper house handrails.

A warning alarm and auto-drum lock are installed as standard. The large display panel in the cab shows operators all the required information at a glance and in a functional easy-to-view layout, without hindering forward visibility.

A new remote monitoring system has been developed to check the crane's condition and status accurately online. Using the remote sensing system helps owners to minimise downtime, and reduce the costs required for maintenance.
