Maeda has officially launched the all-new CC1908S-1, the largest telescopic crawler crane in the Maeda range.
The CC1908S-1 is the largest and strongest model in the Maeda crawler crane line up.
With a pick and carry capacity of 3.5t, the model features an 8t lift capacity with a main boom length of 19.4m. The boom has an option for a hydraulic luffing and extending fly jib, which will provide a tip height of 21.5m.
The driving force for the CC19808S-1 is a Yanmar diesel engine, which is complaint with EU Stage V and EPA Final Tier 4 making it both environmentally friendly and fuel efficient.
No outriggers mean it has a slim working footprint with a width of just 2.49m and this model has a class-leading, short-tail swing-and-slew radius for work in restricted areas.
According to Pace Cranes Managing Director, Anthony Heeks, the new model ticks all the right boxes.
“We’re really excited about the new model CC1908-1 it’s a great addition to the Maeda range. It’s built on the traditional design and engineering values Maeda is renowned for,” he said.
“It’s ideal for working in confined areas and construction sites, for working up and over objects with the hydraulic luffing and telescoping fly jib, and with its pick and carry capabilities, and minimal tail swing, its ideal for indoor use as well.”
“The safety of the operator and those working in close proximity to the crane has been built into the new model and there are a number of new safety features,” said Heeks.
These include a 10-inch touch screen monitor display, a crane function limiting system including a boom slew limit setting, surround view camera and monitor, wide-view roof window and a sun shade and visor as standard.
Other highlights of this crane include a fully enclosed air-conditioned cab with link slide door, powerful two-speed hi/lo winch, hydrostatic transmission, 6/4/2 fall hook block, tilt sensor/alarm, anti slack device and automatic heptagonal five-section boom.
“bauma was our first look at the CC1908-1 and judging by the feedback from customers that visited the stand, we’re super confident it’s going to be a winner,” said Heeks. “We expect to see the model in full production by the third quarter of this year with units landing in Australia shortly after.”
