Hitachi Sumitomo has launched a 35 tonne wheel-mounted crane for the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and Africa.

The new UCX350 has a maximum lift capacity of 35 tonne with a boom length of 9m which can be extended to a maximum of 24m.

It is aimed primarily at the logistics market and applications ranging from cargo handling to warehouse transportation. The crane features a winch drum with a reduction gear unit installed inside a drum, providing a free-fall function.

A newly designed cab with a simple control system is provided to improve controllability and operator comfort, such as a full reclining seat with a suspension mechanism and air conditioning. The control station provides two joystick control levels a tiltable power steering wheel and improved visibility.

Hitachi claims the model is set to improve safety for operators and those on the jobsite; a shut off system is provided to deactivate and lock the hydraulic system when the operator leaves the cab. The HL9-A load moment limiter is also included; this provides the user with information regarding present lifting conditions.
