New LCH300 hydraulic luffing jib crane from Comansa

Comansa has expanded its range of luffing jib cranes with the launch of the LCH300, its first hydraulic model, featuring a maximum load capacity of 16 t and reach of 60 m. The company will officially introduce this model at bauma 2022.

The LCH300/16 t is available in various versions: embedded, supported on bases of 6 or 8 m, or movable. The crane can be assembled with 2.5 x 2.5 m tower sections. Its modular jib has a reach of 25 to 60 m, with configurations every 5 m. It provides a minimum working radius of 4 m and a minimum radius of 9 m when out of service.

The crane has manual transmission combinations of 1T (direct pulling) and 2T. The maximum load capacity is 8 t with the 1T configuration and 16 t with the 2T configuration. The maximum load at the jib end is 3,400 kg and 3,150 kg, respectively.

The luffing moves the jib and counter jib jointly by a hydraulic cylinder at the cathead and jib hinge assembly. The hydraulic pump unit is located on a movable platform in one piece.

From the cabin, there is direct visibility of the lifting mechanism of between 50 kW (standard) and 65 kW (optional). Thanks to the Effi-Plus technology, it is possible to increase the speed of the lifting mechanism without affecting consumption, which allows loading cycles to be considerably reduced, thereby improving the productivity of the crane.

The design of the new rotating part – jib, cathead and counter jib – as well as the mechanism, cabin and hydraulic unit platforms, optimises the transport of this model, which can be supplied by eight trucks or containers.

In addition, the LCH300 is equipped with Comansa’s Cube Cab (L or XL) with Split type air conditioning. The cabin platform, like the lifting and hydraulic unit platforms, can be transported in a single piece.

Comansa luffing jib tower cranes offer optimal performance where horizontal jib cranes cannot move loads freely due to space limitations. Now, with the incorporation of the LCH300 hydraulic model, the luffing mechanism is optimised to deliver even greater performance and an efficient assembly, as well as reduction of the radius when out of service.
