Hitachi CX500 - Vroom

Vroom was using this Hitachi CX500 crawler crane as a assist crane with the Hitachi KH300-3 GLS on a job site in Alkmaar (NL). It is a 50-tonne crawler crane that can also be used as a pile driver (CX500 PD).

The undercarriage of the crane is 5.55 meters long and 4.36 meters wide. For the transport over the road is the undercarriage retracktable up to a 3.3 meter breadth. The counterweight weights 16.9 tonnes and has a 4 meter tailswing.

The crane is powered by a HINO H07CT diesel engine with 180 hp. As an assist crane for a pile driver is the Hitachi lifting the rebar into the vibro pile and fills the tube off with a bucket with concrete.

The crane is fitted here with a 28 meter main boom, with that boom the crane lifts maximum 27.75 tonnes on a 6.7 meter radius and 3.45 tonnes on a 25.4 meter radius. The maximum boom length is 49 meters. The large frame at the back is used to carry the large power pack during the use as a pile driver.
