The SANY SCC8300 crawler crane has been certified for operation by the New York City Department of Buildings, a requirement for the crane to operate on any job site in the nation’s largest city.

“This achievement opens the New York City market to the SANY SCC8300,” said Kyle Nape, senior vice president of the lifting group at SANY America. “New York has the most rigorous standards for crane operation, so this certification speaks well of the SCC8300 and the SANY crane brand.”

Known as “prototype approval,” the certification shows the SCC8300 meets the operational standards of the New York City Building Code. The SCC8300 is the first SANY crane certified for operation in New York City.

A thorough review of the SCC8300 was done by Jay P. Shapiro of Howard I. Shapiro & Associates, Lynbrook, N.Y. Shapiro is an expert on crane operations and New York City regulations. He also is coauthor of Cranes & Derricks, published by McGraw-Hill Publishing Co.

“An owner/operator of a SANY SCC8300 can now register his crane with the city, referencing our prototype approval,” said Ed Bens, a SANY America crane engineer. “Most buyers of lifting equipment in the greater NYC area won’t buy brands without the prototype approval, on the chance they will have jobs in New York City. So this is an important achievement for SANY.”

The approved SCC8300 prototype has a maximum 301.8-ft. (92 m) lattice boom, with 216.5-ft. (66 m) luffing jib and 121.4-ft. (37 m) fixed jib attached to the luffing jib. It also has a boom point extension available for the main boom. The SCC8300 operates with two counterweight levels, Series 1 with 176,400 lbs. (80,013 kg) and Series 2, with 282,200 lbs. (128,003 kg) of upper counterweight and 125,700 lbs. (57,016 kg) of carbody counterweight. The approval applies to eight configurations of the SCC8300, with various boom, jib, extension and counterweight options.
