China believed to have world's largest crawler crane

A massive crawler crane rolled off the production line of China's largest machine manufacturer, Sany Group, on Tuesday in east Jiangsu Province, marking a major step forward for the Chinese manufacturing industry.

The crawler crane SCC86000TM, developed by Sany in the city of Kunshan in Jiangsu, boasts a maximum lifting capacity of 3,600 tonnes and is believed to outpace any rival in the world in terms of lifting and torsion force, according to Sany.

The jumbo crawler crane will be mainly used in the construction of nuclear power projects in China, said Sany's president, Xiang Wenbo.

Before Sany entered the industry in 2006, China lacked a crawler crane with a capacity over 350 tonnes, Xiang said.

He noted that Sany succeeded in developing China's first crawler crane with a capacity over 400 tonnes in 2006, the country's first 1,000-tonne crawler crane in 2008, and 1,600-tonne crane in 2010.
