Third model of SCX E-series offers enhanced safety and operator comfort
Hitachi-Sumitomo has launched a new 80t lattice boom crawler crane that expands its SCX E-series of cranes.
The Japanese equipment giant announced that the new model – the SCX800E – has a maximum lift capacity of 80t at a 3.2m radius and sports a maximum main boom length of 54.5m. It is powered by a 140kW Isuzu 6HK1 EU Stage II/Tier 2 diesel engine. The engine’s emission performance makes it suitable for non-regulated markets around the world, such as the Middle East.
Among the crane’s specification are maximum line speeds of 75 metres per minute on the front and rear winches and 62m/min on the boom hoist winch.
The SCX800E also comes with safety features such as a standard anti-two block system and a secondary boom hoist limiting device. The boom hoist winch also features a standard automatic drum lock, which automatically locks and releases the drum and helps prevent accidents, the manufacturer said.
The crane also boasts a 1,040mm wide cabin, which is wider than usual to enhance operator comfort. According to Hitachi-Sumitomo, the crane also used proven and simple hydraulic and electrical circuitry, and the design follows a centralised layout for filters, fuses and relays to minimise downtime and reduce maintenance requirements.
The new 80t SCX800E is the third model in Hitachi-Sumitomo’s SCX E-series, joining the SCX550E and SCX700E.
