Kobelco launches new telescopic boom crawler crane for Europe
Kobelco Construction Machinery Co Ltd has launched the TKE750G, its new telescopic boom crawler crane with a maximum lifting capacity of 75t aimed at the European market.
The crane is equipped with an EU Stage V-compliant Mercedes-Benz E9H01 (Daimler OM936LA) engine and continues the same basic concept of the G series lattice boom crawler crane models. The TKE750G will be available from mid-2024 onwards.
The machine is built on the same tried and tested concept as the G series lattice boom crawler crane models offering high reliability, high utilisation and ease of operation alongside durability and commonality of parts across all the G series models.
These machines are mainly used for foundation works using vibration hammers, auger drilling, and hammer-grabs for all casing methods, etc. The Kobelco telescopic boom crawler crane series includes a larger engine capacity, shorter boom length with higher winch capacity on standard main/auxiliary winches, and stronger, thicker wire ropes offering higher capability of foundation works in comparison with conventional telescopic crawlers on the market.
The TKE750G is equipped with an exceptionally stiff 4-plate box structural boom that has been designed for foundation work. The boom’s light weight and durability have been achieved through optimising materials, construction and welding.
Due to the short boom length with a side deflection-resistant fully powered boom, the crane can taking on any job, especially on compact job-sites. The crane is equipped with a 22mm diameter wire rope with a 7t rated line pull. The main and auxiliary winches are positioned vertically at the rear end of the machine, helping maintain a compact main body.
The TKE750G is powered by a Mercedes-Benz E9H01 (Daimler OM936LA) 7.697l water-cooled, in-line 6-cylinder direct injection and turbo-charged engine, with a rated power output of 254kW/2,000 min-1, that is compliant with NRMM (Non-Road Mobile Machinery – Europe) EU Stage V regulations. The engine offers higher hydraulic performance, especially important during foundation operation.
Kobelco’s KCROSS (Kobelco Crane Remote Observation Satellite System) is also retained on the TKE750G model. Machines fitted with KCROSS transmit working conditions, locations, and maintenance history to provide owners with fact-based information for their asset management.
