Houston—Global Crane Sales, as part of its newly announced partnership with Zoomlion, launches the QUY260 Crawler Crane in the North American market. Part of a complete line of QUY Crawler Cranes, the 260-metric ton QUY260 is built to the highest engineering and design standards, including high-quality components, and touts the first of many Zoomlion cranes to meet ANSI standards. Designed for maximum portability, and exceptional control and reliability, the QUY260 is ideal for a variety of applications including general construction, construction of windmills, as well as oilrigs and refineries.
Featuring an optimized boom design and constructed with imported high-strength steel, the QUY260 offers unmatched lifting capacity and strength. Maximum lifting capacity is 287-tons while the maximum lifting capacity with the luffing jib is 81-tons, and 37.5-tons with the fixed jib. Main boom length range is 65.6- to 272.3-feet and the extended-reach boom ranges from 282.2- to 311.7-feet.
In addition to high-strength construction, quality hydraulic and electric components are incorporated into the QUY260, including Linde pumps, a PAT/Hirschmann LMI system, Pfeifer wire rope and a Rexroth motors. To ensure powerful, reliable operation, the crane is powered by a Cummins QSL9-C305 diesel engine.
Featuring precise micromotion design, the QUY260 delivers smooth operation, whether lifting, loading or changing direction. The electronically-controlled motor offers variable speed control to maximize efficiency with both light and heavy loads. Both the main and auxiliary winches offer a speed of 360.9-feet per minute. A camera surveillance system provides full operator visibility of the boom and load for better hoist control and precise lifting.
The operator’s control cab is built for maximum comfort, safety and ease of operation. The control panel, levers, operating handle and dashboard have been ergonomically designed, and adjustable seats and air conditioning are included for further comfort. To enhance operator visibility and reduce fatigue, the cab has the ability to be pitched upward by 20-degrees.
An electric monitoring system is included to increase safe operation while enhancing the crane’s performance and longevity. The system monitors and displays real-time parameters of crucial items such as the hydraulic circuit’s working pressure, total working time, engine speed, oil pressure and fuel level. For further enhanced safety, the crane features anti-tipping devices, as well as a limit-position alarm system for the operating boom.
The QUY260 has been designed for easy assembly and disassembly, with no auxiliary equipment required. Using its own mechanisms, the track frame, ballast weight, counterweight and boom frame can be easily installed and dismounted. The track and frame are connected via an easy-to-install hydraulic circular drive pin.
All Zoomlion cranes undergo strict load testing including rated, dynamic, static and traveling, and are CE-certified and meet ANSI standards.
