“The model has improved working speeds and has a greater radius than its predecessor, and it also features innovative drive technology and design, such as the 3-phase-powered hoist and slewing gear units and a broad range of options, including an energy-efficient hybrid drive,”said Dr. Mathias Dobner, Executive Vice President and Member of the Executive Committee of Demag Cranes AG
As the entry model in the 100-tonne Harbour Cranes the Model 3, with its maximum lifting capacity of 100 tonnes up to a radius of 20 m, is the youngest addition to Gottwald’s medium-sized crane family. It is particularly suited to rapid container and general cargo handling alongside vessels up to standard class. For handling bulk materials it has a 34-tonne and 28-tonne motor grab curve with A7 and A8 classification respectively.
With its maximum radius of 46 m, an installed maximum output of 895 kW and hoisting speeds of up to 120 m/min, Model 3 offers a radius 2 m more than that of its predecessor, the Generation 4, HMK 260, and increased working speeds to enable improved productivity.
