With a rated lift capacity of 165 tons (150 t), the new SANY SCC8150 crawler crane fills a strategic position in SANY America's crawler crane lineup midway between the 110-ton (100 t) SCC8100 and 220-ton (200 t) SCC8200 machines.

The SCC8150 crawler crane achieves its maximum lift capacity at a radius of 16.1 ft. (4.9 m). It may 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 IV interim-certified Cummins engine powers the SCC8150 crawler crane. A 325-hp (242 kW), Tier III 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 SANY SCC8150 crawler crane offers a Rexroth hydraulic system, including the main pump, main valve and servo control. Independently driven drums include hydraulically powered planetary gears. The hydraulically driven swing system provides 360-degree rotation.

Porsche-Designed UltraCab 2

Provides Operator Comfort, Control

The Porsche-designed SANY UltraCab 2 provides ergonomics, large windows for clear visibility, heat and air conditioning, and well-placed function screens and video monitors to enhance operator control.

Other capabilities 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.

Independently driven crawler assemblies enable forward and reverse travel, pivot steering and counter rotation. Outfitted with up to 1,148 ft. (350 m) of high-quality, 1-in. (2.6 cm) Diepa Rope, the rated line pull of the crane's main winch is 29,542 lbs. (13,400 kg) and maximum line speed of 580 ft. (177 m) per minute.

Without track frames and with boom butt, the SANY SCC8150 weighs 99,208 lbs. (45,000 kg), and measures 53.5 ft. (16.3 m) long and 11.5 ft. (3.5 m) wide. Its basic height is 10.5 ft. (3.2 m). It is available with up to 162,918 lbs. (73,898 kg) of counterweight.

Five Crawler, Four Rough-Terrain Cranes

With the addition of the new SCC8150 model, SANY offers five crawler cranes ranging from 110 to 550 tons (100 to 500 t), along with its four-model lineup of rough-terrain cranes, ranging from 40 to 85 tons (36.3 to 77 t).

"Including the new SCC8150, SANY has brought nine new models to this marketplace since 2010," said Nape. "We're demonstrating our commitment to the North American market through this impressive record of machine design, development and production."
