Sany America rolls out new RT

Sany America is rolling out its third rough terrain crane in two years, the SRA550A, a 55-ton unit that was “designed for a multitude of jobsites,” said General Manager/Director – Cranes Brian Smoot.

The new Sany America SRA550A rough terrain crane features an advanced and user-friendly LMI system, a spacious cab with high visibility and a flat deck design with multiple access points. It is powered by a Cummins engine, Dana transmission and Meritor axles.

“It has the longest boom and is the strongest RT in its class,” said Smoot. “Like its little brother, the SRA350A, the SRA550A is built to perform in confined spaces with a tight, overall compact size.”

The new unit was designed to be used for municipality work, refinery work, power plant maintenance, laydown yard staging and as a general construction support crane.

Advanced features

Keeping with Sany’s rough terrain crane family, Smoot said the SRA550A boasts the most advanced and user-friendly LMI in the industry, a spacious cab with creature comforts, high visibility, flat deck design with multiple access points, full camera package with night vision, a bright LED lighting package and it has the same drivetrain components with a Cummins engine, Dana transmission and Meritor axles.

The SRA550A will start delivery by mid 2024.

“Safety features abound boasting tie-offs throughout, third wrap indicator with function kick-out, virtual wall with function kick out and fine inching adjustment,” he said. “This cab beats the competition in width and spaciousness and provides ergonomically positioned controls and a robust HVAC system to keep operators comfortable all day.”

The crane features a 55-ton capacity with a 35.4 to 114.8-foot four-section formed boom. It has a 30.25 to 52.5-foot two-piece lattice hydraulically powered assisted jib.

The powertrain consists of a Cummins QSB6.7 280 hp Stage V engine. The crane features winches with 15,500 pounds of available line pull from a ¾-inch category 1 Verope wire rope. It has a maximum wire rope speed of 492 fpm and 9,700-pound fixed counterweight. It was designed with centralized upper and electrical compartments and remote-mounted filters and easily accessible daily checks. The SRA550A also has four steering modes. Smoot pointed out that all Sany America cranes are backed by a three-year, 3,000-hour warranty.
