It is a 600 tonne crawler crane with year of manufacture 2015.

To erect the long main boom without the need of a derrick boom are on one side large outriggers attached to take care for the necessary stability.

The tracks are 10.9 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.9 meters high. The weight each is 38 tonnes. Standard are the tracks 1.5 meters wide, the 2 meter plates are optional. Each track has two drives.

The mechanical outriggers could be attached on both sides. With the outriggers the tilt line is moved from 4.2 meters to 8 meters.

The crane is powered by a 6 cylinder Liebherr D846 A7 diesel engine with 503 hp.

The crane is equipped with a Quick Connection slewing ring to easily split the superstructure with the carbody for smaller transport collis. The crane has two slew drives.
