As part of Demag's plans to strengthen its position in the crawler market, they have introduced the CC2800-1 NT, a narrow track version of Demag CC2800-1 in 2006. With a chassis width of five metres, the crane was tailored specially for erecting of turbines at wind farms or sites that has restricted access.

During the customer day, eight orders were placed with the first crane to be delivered already on shipment to Finland while the second unit, the crane at the event was due for shipment to Canada purchased by Guay Inc of Quebec, whom also ordered a AC500 at the same time.

The narrow track chassis enables the crane to be moved, fully rigged, from one windmill to the next along the roads that are five metres wide. With the elimination of dismantling, transportation and subsequent re-erection, it not only saves time but increase productivity at site as well.

Technical Specifications

Most of the specifications of CC2800-1 NT is similar to CC2800-1, except with the addition of the Narrow Track Kit. The kit can be used either with a 1.2 metre wide track shoes for a narrower overal width, or a 1.5 metre wide track shoes for lower ground pressures, depending on site condition.

Ease of Transportation
The carbody is the largest single unit, measuring 3.5 metres wide and weighing 36 ton. The sideways outriggers are three metres wides and can be transported with its pads attached.

The counterweight is fitted a metres lower than on a standard crane to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible to maximise lateral stability.

The unit can travel with boom configurations of up to 114 metres, with up to 2.4 degrees of lateral tilt approved by the manufacturer.

The CC 2800-1 NT can self erect itself, with 102 metres of SH/LH SGLmax S7 boom and 12 metres luffing fly jib without an assist crane. Some other features include a low centre of gravity and low ground pressure. The superstructure of NT version is the same as the CC 2800-1 so it can still be converted into a standard crane.

Weldex has show interest and bought the first unit of the LR11350-P1800. The crane was immediately shipped from factory to Eemshaven, Netherlands for a wind power job. The job was a joint effort together with Mammoet, which was also one of the major Dutch competitors.

The scope was to lift the 18 metres by 7 metres machine housing of a 6MW class wind turbine belonging to Repower (renamed to Senvion). The 340 tonnes load has to be raised onto a tower of height 110 metres. The gross weight of the load including hook and tackle was 378 tonnes. A total of two 6MW from Repower were installed by the LR11350-P1800 in Eemshaven, which both served as test facilities. Plans are for 48 turbines of the similar type to be installed from 2013 onwards in the North Sea East offshore windpark, off the island of Heligoland.

Hydraulic Telescoping Luffing Jib (HTLJ)
On this 360 ton all terrain, Tadano has displayed a new concept for boom attachment called the Hydraulic Telescoping Luffing Jib, HTLJ in short. With the HTLJ, it gives a boost to the 60 metres main boom a further 31 metres of reach, hence increasing the maximum lifting height and working to 92 metres and 65 metres respectively. The HTLJ can telescope out from 10.3 to 31 metres and luff with the design of three powerful hydraulic cylinders.

One of the beauty is that the four-section telescopic jib is designed to be fitted onto the main boom quickly and can be done by just one person, without the need of an assist crane. With the assistance of a remote control, the rigging of the jib attachment take just a mere 20 minutes.

Tadano has also consider the safety aspects during the design of the jib as it can be attach at ground level thus eliminating the risks associated with working at height.

Other Jib Attachments
Some other jib configurations available for the ATF360G-6 includes fixed jib from 14 to 57 metres or luffing jib 20 to 72 metres, giving a maximum hook height of 120 metres.

Onboard Counterweight
Like most of the Japanese truck cranes, GT550E-2 counterweight are mounted on the crane's body and does not need to be remove while traveling on the road, hence saving time and money for additional assembly and transportation of the crane's counterweight.

Latest AML-C Indicator
The crane has also been fitted with Tadano's latest Automatic Moment Limiter (AML-C) which display operating conditions such as boom length, boom angle, load radius, slewing position, actual load, total rated load, outriggers position, jib length, jib offset angle and the number of part-lines. In addition, the AML-C also provides a working range limit function which crane operators can set the limits for constraint working environment.

Asymmetric Outriggers Extension Width
The GT550E-2 offers three different outriggers extensions width: fully retracted at 2.39m, intermediate extended at 4.6m and fully extended at 6.8m. With the help of the new AML-C system, even when the outriggers extension width differs between any of the four outriggers, the AML will detects such working conditions and displays the optimal value for each work area.

Grove GRT880 Rough Terrain Crane (80 ton)


The new GRT880 to be feature during ConExpo 2017
Image Credit: Manitowoc Cranes
Manitowoc is set to display their newest roughter, GRT880 at its booth for CONEXPO 2017 after an introduction was also made during BAUMA Germany 2016. This crane is fitted with several class-leading capabilities and Manitowoc's Crane Control System (CCS).

Product manager for Manitowoc's rough terrain crane, Paul Cutchall, has mentioned that through the advancement of their Product Verification Centre (PVC), each of the component has undergone extensive component validation and prototype testing and using these knowledge, they have been able to improve the roughter from ground up.

Technical Specifications

The GRT880 features a 41m (135ft) main boom that is lighter than other cranes in its capacity class and comes with a full complement of boom extension and insert options. It also has an outstanding reach of 60.9m (200 ft) and a maximum tip height of 68m (223ft). Though the boom might be lighter and longer then its predecessor, it has the ability to lift heavier loads across its load chart.

Comparable to other roughter of the same class, like Tadano GR800EX, the GRT880 is more versatile than its competitor cranes - boasting up to 16% increase in load charts at full radius, 13% greater in mid-range and 27% at close radii.  With offsettable boom and fly jib extensions, the crane will enables customer to lift heavier loads to greater heights.

Though the offsettable jib is manual, the new boom extension stowage system reduce the erection and stowage time by 60% comparing to previous generation Grove cranes. Reducing time in setup and dissemble means lesser cost and increase in ROI.

The GRT880 also had the best-in-class hoist line pulls at 7,883kg (13, 380lbs) on both the main and auxiliary hoists. It reduce the number of part-lines needed to lift loads from similar capacity cranes which in turn higher productivity and faster earnings.
