AUSTRALIA: A new Australian-designed 22 ton (20 tonne) capacity pick and carry crane will be launched during the country's annual Crane Industry Council of Australia (CICA) National Conference at the Adelaide Convention Center, September 6-8.

Known as the Panda Crane, the new articulating pick and carry model with telescopic boom is manufactured by China's biggest crane producer XCMG and will be distributed by Australian Crane and Machinery (ACM).

Fifty units will be imported to Australia before Christmas and there is a buyer for each one, according to ACM.
