KC-55729-1V 32 ton truck crane is mounted on KamAZ-6540 (8 x 4) chassis.
Crane is operated via two axial-piston hydraulic pumps, which are set to operation by the carrier engine through the gearbox and additional PTO. Crane mechanisms have individual drives with independent control. Crane hydraulic system ensures smooth control of all mechanisms with wide range of operations adjustment levels, and allows for simultaneous combination of load-lifting operations.
At plant the most innovative technologies are used to upgrade Galichanin 32t cranes. Boom metalwork was manufactured in Germany in compliance with state-of-the-art technologies, using high-yield-point WELDOX steel. New booms sections consist of two bended steel shapes with butt joints between them, which increases arms strength and minimizes their mass. Boom minimum length is 9.6m, maximum – 30.2m. This allows both for maneuverability while on move and high operation height.
The boom is additionally equipped with a flying jib, which can be positioned at 15 and 30 degrees to the boom axis which significantly enlarges crane operating range and under-boom space. Use of additional 2.9-ton counterweight allows for improvement of load-lifting capacity and ensures the best characteristics among this particular group of cranes.
The counterweight gets the crane characteristics close to the ones of 50t models, its outreach is up to 27m. The counterweight installation does not require any auxiliary load-lifting equipment or human resources.
The arm can be telescoping while having weight on its hook which allows the crane to perform the following operations: place cargo at hard-to-teach spots, transport it through mounted framework. The outriggers use allows for the crane operation in confined area. Crane operating is safe due to lots of sophisticated devices, including microprocessor load limiter with operational parameters indication on the operator’s display up in the cab. The device protects the crane from overloading, featuring coordinate protection necessary for operation in confined area. It also has integrated telemetry recording unit (so-called “black box”) and hazardous voltage protection module allowing for work close to power lines.
