Japanese mobile crane maker Kato launched its new 300-tonne, six-axle all-terrain crane for the global market.

A statement from Kato said the crane has a powerful 55-metre boom and a very long 35-metre Supper Luffing (SL) with a 54-metre Heavy Lift (HL) jib. When the SL Jib is deployed the maximum lifting height of the model is 92 metres, while using the HL jib raises the maximum lifting height to 110.7 metres.

The boom has five sections and its lift capacity is 24 tonnes with the luffing jib, which can be assembled vertically where the available ground space is small. The crane’s maximum counterweight is 105 tonnes, which is made up of eight 6-tonne slabs, four 10-tonne slabs and the base plate. It has a 5.5-metre rear swing radius with the counterweight.

Separate engines power the lifting and roading functions of the KA-3000RX, with the crane carrier vehicle running on a 405kW Daimler OM502LA diesel engine with selective catalytic reduction (SCR), and the crane powered by a 205kW Daimler OM906LA diesel in the upper structure. The model has a rear-steer function for manoeuvring in tight spaces and extra stability while all the wheels have disc brakes.
