With a rated lifting capacity of 85 tons (77 t), the new SANY SRC885 rough-terrain crane expands the SANY America product line to fill a gap in the market and meet the growing demand for higher capacity cranes.

Like other SANY rough-terrain cranes, the new SRC885 delivers lifting power, pick-and-carry capability and operating stability on virtually any job site, regardless of terrain. Kyle Nape, senior vice president, SANY America Lifting Group, said the new model combines exceptional value with ease of operation, ease of maintenance and attention to operator comfort and convenience.

The SANY SRC885 provides reach of up to 209.7 ft. (63.9 m) through a five-section, full-power boom. It can achieve the rated 85-ton lifting capacity at a 10-ft. (3.05 m) radius. With an overall weight of 115,880 lb. (52,562 kg), the SANY SRC885 is well-sized for a variety of applications while still being easy to transport, according to the manufacturer.

“The market is looking for a strong product that provides higher capacity than the more common 75- and 80-ton class machines without carrying the price tag of a 90-ton crane,” said Nape. “We expect the SRC885 model to meet that demand and fulfill contractors’ expectations.”

The new SRC885, like other SANY rough-terrain cranes, uses globally sourced key components, including a Cummins engine, Braden winches and hoists, a Dana transmission and Parker hydraulics, satisfying the serviceability demands of customers and dealers alike.

The SRC885 achieves maneuverability and a smooth ride through 4x4 hydraulic powered steering and earthmover-style tires. To provide stability in adverse ground conditions, the SRC885 rough-terrain crane features three-position outriggers that level the crane with up to 12.4 in. (31 cm) of ground penetration and maximum horizontal extension of 24 ft. (7.32 m).

The 275-hp (204 kW) Cummins Tier IVi engine integrates with the hydraulic system for precision control and multi-function load sharing. Hydraulic joysticks provide smooth, variable control of crane functions, and the two-speed swing system rotates 360 degrees in either direction.

Suited for Contractors and Rental Operations

Nape said that SANY America expects the new SRC885 rough-terrain crane will be popular among both contractors and equipment rental operations because of its ease of use and maintenance as well as its transportability.

“Along with its attention to operator comfort and easy serviceability, the SRC885 is priced right for both rental and contractor customers, which will help establish a strong market presence,” Nape said. “This machine offers a combination of specifications and capabilities that demonstrates our commitment to satisfying the demands of the North American market.”

Standard operator comfort, convenience and safety features of the SRC885 include a spacious, ergonomic cab with all-steel construction, hydraulic joystick controls, optimum visibility, tinted safety glass, an opening skylight with visor and wiper system, a sliding door on the left side of the cab, a framed sliding window on the right side, acoustic foam for noise suppression and insulation, heat and air conditioning. A six-way adjustable seat with mechanical suspension features arm rests and a headrest.

Self-Diagnostics Enable Onboard System Checks

An in-cab monitor prominently displays the machine’s operations and provides full-machine diagnostic capabilities, enabling operators and maintenance personnel to perform onboard system checks.

Other key specifications and dimensions include the main boom which telescopes from 38.7 to 147.6 ft. (11.8 to 45 m), boom extension that ranges from 30.2 to 52.5 ft. (9.2 to 16 m), and maximum hoist line pull of 20,559 lb. with 841 ft. (256 m) of ¾-in. (1.9 cm) diameter line. The SRC885 is 46 ft. 11 in. (14 m) long, 11 ft. (3.4 m) wide and 12 ft. 6.5 in. (3.66 m) tall, with tail swing of 14 ft. 11 in. (4.27 m). Total counterweight is 28,660 lbs. (13,000 kg).

In addition to its four-model lineup of rough-terrain cranes, ranging from 40 to 85 tons (36 to 77 t), SANY America also offers five crawler crane models from 110 to 550 tons (100 to 499 t).

“All these models are new to this marketplace since 2010,” Nape said. “We’re an engineering-based company with an impressive record of product development that underscores our commitment to the North American market.”
