Crane manufacturer Sany America has launched a mid-range crane to complete its line-up of crawler cranes. The new Sany SCC8150 has a rated lift capacity of 165 tons (150 tonnes), filling a strategic position between Sany’s 110-ton (100-tonne) SCC8100 and the 220-ton (200-tonne) SCC8200.

The SCC8150 crawler crane can be configured with either a main boom that reaches up to 269 ft (82 m) or a fixed jib up to 102 ft (31 m) long. A fuel-efficient, 340-hp (316 kW), Tier 4 interim-certified Cummins engine powers the SCC8150 crawler crane. A 325-hp (242 kW), Tier 3 Cummins engine also is available.

“The SCC8150 gives contractors a new option in a competitive segment of the market,” said Kyle Nape, senior vice president, Sany America Lifting Group. “Our new crane delivers a superior combination of control, performance, operator comfort, power and dependability that meets and exceeds the requirements for a machine in this weight class.”

The crawler crane’s Porsche-designed UltraCab 2 provides operator comfort with enhanced ergonomics, large windows for clear visibility, heat and air conditioning, and well-placed function screens and video monitors.

Other features include a boom-elevation device, emergency stop of all functions, two externally mounted cameras to monitor machine operations, aircraft warning light on the main boom, and “shove-off” protection that prevents the machine from working unless the operator is seated in the cab.
