The undercarriage is 9.145 meters long and 7.98 meters wide. The crane is powered by a Cummins QSG12 diesel engine with a power of 242 kW.
The counterweight exists out of a wide base plate of 16 tonnes with in total fourteen slabs of each 6 tonnes stacked on, the counterweight has a total mass of 100 tonnes. The crane can pick-up the counterweight from the ground by using two hydraulic cylinders for assembly without auxilairy crane.
The tracks must be removed for the transport over the road from the body. A single track is 9.145 meters long, 1.2 meters wide and 1.4 meters tall. The transport mass per track is 22 tonnes. With use of the hydraulic cylinder that is attached to the gantry is the crane able to pick-up the tracks from the trailer and install to the body.
Between the tracks are on both sides central ballast installed. 15 tonnes per side, so in total 30 tonnes.
The wide and spacious Sany cabin is 25 degrees tiltable.
