LAS VEGAS (March 6, 2014) – After announcing the machine’s availability in mid-2013, Sany America is exhibiting the SRC885 rough-terrain crane for the first time at the company’s booth at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014.

The Sany SRC885 rough-terrain crane expands the company’s product line to address fast-growing demand for an 85-ton (77-metric ton) model.

Like other Sany rough-terrain cranes, the SRC885 delivers lifting power, pick-and-carry capability and operating stability on virtually any jobsite, regardless of terrain. Kyle Nape, senior vice president, Sany America lifting group, said the new model combines exceptional value with ease of operation, ease of maintenance and attention to operator comfort and convenience.

The Sany SRC885 provides reach of up to 209.7 ft. through a five-section, full-power boom. It can achieve the rated 85-ton lifting capacity at a 10-ft. radius. With an overall weight of 115,880 lb., the Sany SRC 885 is well sized for a variety of applications while still being easy to transport.

“The market is looking for a strong product that provides higher capacity than the more common 75- and 80-ton class machines without carrying the price tag of a 90-ton crane,” said Nape. “We expect the SRC885 model to meet that demand and fulfill contractors’ expectations.”

The new SRC885, like other Sany rough-terrain cranes, uses trusted, globally sourced key components, including a Cummins engine, Braden winches and hoists, a Dana transmission and Parker hydraulics, satisfying the serviceability demands of customers and dealers alike.

The Sany SRC885 achieves maneuverability and a stable ride through 4x4 hydraulic-powered steering and earthmover-style tires. To provide stability in adverse ground conditions, the SRC885 rough-terrain crane features three-position outriggers that level the crane with up to 12.4 in. of ground penetration and maximum horizontal extension of 24 ft.

The 275-hp Cummins Tier 4i engine integrates with the hydraulic system for precision control and multi-function load sharing. Hydraulic joysticks provide smooth, variable control of crane functions, and the two-speed swing system rotates 360 degrees in either direction.

Suited for contractors and rental operations

Nape said the Sany SRC885 rough-terrain crane is quickly establishing its popularity among both contractors and equipment rental operations because of its ease of use and maintenance as well as its transportability.  

“Along with its attention to operator comfort and easy serviceability, the SRC885 is priced right for both rental and contractor customers, which will help establish a strong market presence,” Nape noted. “This machine offers a combination of specifications and capabilities that demonstrates our commitment to satisfying the demands of the North American market.”

Standard operator comfort, convenience and safety features of the SRC885 include a spacious, ergonomic cab with all-steel construction, hydraulic joystick controls, optimum visibility, tinted safety glass, an opening skylight with visor and wiper system, a sliding door on the left side of the cab, a framed sliding window on the right side, acoustic foam for noise suppression and insulation, heat and air conditioning. A six-way adjustable seat with mechanical suspension features arm rests and a headrest.

An in-cab monitor prominently displays the machine’s operations and provides full-machine diagnostic capabilities, enabling operators and maintenance personnel to perform onboard system checks.

Other key specifications and dimensions include the main boom which telescopes from 38.7 to 147.6 ft., boom extension that ranges from 30.2 to 52.5 ft., and maximum hoist line pull of 20,559 lb. with 841 ft. of ¾-in. diameter line. The SRC885 is 46 ft. 11 in. long, 11 ft. wide and 12 ft. 6.5 in. tall, with tail swing of 14 ft. 11 in. Total counterweight is 28,660 lb.

Innovative features, smart operation and attention to operator comfort allow SANY rough-terrain cranes to tackle a wide range of applications. They deliver the lifting power, pick-and-carry capability and operating stability required on virtually any jobsite.
