Terex CC 2800-1 - Sarens

By the construction of the new Ramspolbrug near Kampen (NL) was this brand new Terex CC 2800-1 of Sarens used with counterweight carrier.

Some beams were hoisted in tandem lift with a Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 off pontoon. The crane is fitted with an 84 meter long main boom.

Special is the use of the counterweight carrier, not often used.

The crane operator is here rotating the wheels to drive the crane backwards. First the carrier is pushed upwards to unload the wheels during rotating.

On the carrier are 30 plates of each 8 tonnes lay down, makes 240 tonnes in total.

It is a brandnew CC 2800-1 that was liverd directly to the constuction site from the factory in Germany.

On the crane is hanging 180 tonnes of counterweight.

Between the superstructure and the carrier is a lattice frame made. The superlift radius is not adjustable. Between both can also a stinger mounted to make the radius adjustable.

The counterweight carrier can also beeing used by a TC 2800-1, but the crane must be put up on half outrigger base.

Between the tracks is hanging 30 tonnes of lower weights per side.

Each single track is 11.66 metres long, 1.5 metres wide and 1.7 metres height. Mass each is about 44 tonnes.
