Kato will launch the 25 tonne CR-250R-V city type All Terrain crane and the 100 tonne KA1000Rx All Terrain crane at Bauma next month.
Built for the European market, the CR-250R-V will be a direct replacement for the CR250. It features a 29 metre main boom and a 5.7 metre telescopic offsettable jib, and standard 8.5 tonne searcher hook. Power comes from a Stage V Cummins diesel, while a 360 degree camera system and anti-lock braking are standard. The first units expected to arrive in Europe later this year.
Designed initially for the Asian market, the four axle KA1000Rx features a 51.3 metre six section main boom and an 8.8 to 20.4 metre telescopic swingaway extension. The crane is fitted with a Stage IV Mercedes diesel and includes an anti-lock braking system as standard.
Colin Cleary, managing director of Kato's European distributor Rivertek Services said: “We are delighted to be returning to Bauma next month where we will launch the CR-250Rv city crane to the European market and the KA1000Rx. Both cranes are of extremely high quality and completely manufactured in Japan, offering the best in Japanese engineering.”
