September 19, 2022 By Yahoo Finance
XCA2600, the world’s largest tonnage all-terrain crane developed by XCMG, has successfully completed the first test to lift a 173-ton weight, ahead of being delivered to a wind farm in China next month.
The XCA2600 is equipped with three core technologies: high-performance flexible boom, super-lifting and independent suspension. As well as hoisting a weight of 173 tons, the XCA2600 can reach a lifting height of 160 meters, which is 20 percent higher than products of the same class and covers 90 percent of wind turbine installations across China.
In addition, the model is also the world’s first crane to be equipped with a 10-axle chassis, and it can be interchanged with the XCC2600, the world’s largest tonnage telescopic boom crawler crane. The XCA2600 body is 50-cm shorter than the industry average, while the minimum ground clearance is 200mm higher, allowing for better operational flexibility.
