Terex launches Demag PC 3800-1 pedestal crane
Post Date: 2017-08-02

Terex has launched a new pedestal version of its CC3800-1 crawler, the Demag PC 3800-1, which it says can be used at jobsites previously not accessible by standard crawler models.

The manufacturer says that the PC 3800-1 needs significantly less ground preparation time than crawler cranes. It only needs four spots to be prepared for the outrigger supports, which do not need to be perfectly leveled as the outrigger cylinders can compensate some tolerance on the ground’s flatness, up to 2.1° with a 12 x 12 m (39.4 x 39.4ft) outrigger base.

Existing pile foundations can be used as outrigger supports for the PC 3800-1 when providing sufficient stability. This setup makes the crane beneficial on jobsites where ground layout and structure are already existing, which is often the case on harbor quays and refineries, as well as when installing bridges from river banks.

The new PC 3800-1 pedestal crane features hydraulic extendable and foldable outriggers that can be positioned at 12 x 12 m (39.4 x 39.4ft), 14 x 14 m (46 x 46ft) with all configurations including Superlift and 16 x 16 m (62.5 x 62.5ft) without Superlift.

“The PC 3800-1 also provides increased lifting performance in several configurations or requires less counterweight for the same or slightly higher lifting capacities. Less counterweight means fewer trucks, translating into significantly reduced transportation costs,” said Terex.

For additional versatility, Demag has also developed an adapter to connect the carbody (center pot) of the crane to an SPMT or axle lines. Depending on road regulations, the Demag PC 3800-1 equipped with axle lines can be adapted easily to match a 12t load per axle or to have a cross vehicle weight below 100t.

Other optional accessories for the Demag PC 3800-1 pedestal crane include a quick connection to un-deck the superstructure from the chassis and different sizes of outrigger mats.

The PC 3800-1 can be purchased as a complete crane or the carrier only can be purchased as a retrofit option for the Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane and its predecessor, Superlift 3800. The Quick Connection system allows efficient switching between crawlers and pedestal carrier on Demag CC 3800-1 cranes with or without the Superlift and is compatible with wind turbine combinations, as well as Boom Booster kits.
