SCX800A-3 is BRUN’s new flagship crawler crane

March 07, 2018

A new Hitachi Sumitomo SCX800A-3 has become the star of Swiss contractor GEBR BRUN AG’s line-up. According to BRUN’s Daniel Fanger, the decision to purchase the crawler crane was an easy one thanks to the company’s relationship with Hitachi dealer Probst Maveg: “They care about us and our machines, and they answered all of our technical questions.”

BRUN’s impressive new machine was delivered in October 2017 and is being put to work on a drainage project in the town of Zug. The company’s main task is the foundation engineering work for the construction of five shafts.

More flexibility

“This is a typical job for us,” adds Daniel. “As our biggest crane, the SCX800A-3 gives us more flexibility than the rest of the fleet, due to the greater distance between the machine and the sheet piles, and the stronger load chart.”

SCX800A-3 – key specifications:

  • engine rated power: 201/2,000 (kW)
  • lift capacity: 80 x 3.3 (t x m)
  • boom length: 54.5 (m).

Long lifespan

For Daniel, the crawler crane offers additional benefits: “It is easy to operate and is perfect for our needs. The small radius is advantageous and also adds to the user-friendliness of the machine. For us, the smaller and stronger, the better.

“With the customary durability of the new Hitachi Sumitomo, we are counting on a long lifespan. The size of the machine also offers ease of assembly and transportation, and the counterweight can be adapted to any journey.”
