This Scania R164G-480 is owned by Autotrasporti Lozza from Olginate (I).
It is a 8x2*6 chassis, which means it has 3 stearing axles for good manoeuvrability. This crane truck does a lot of machinery movements, manoeuvrability is important in that line of work.
Unfortunately the yard is a bit cramped. The rear side of the chassis has typical italian drawbar coupling...
...which often is used to pull this very low Bertoja drawbar lowloader. The very low floor makes it ideal for transporting high machines.
The Scania is equiped with a crane of the brand Ing. Bonfiglioli, an Italian manufacturer from a town north of Bologna.
The cranetype is P110000G and has a lifting capacity that very constant at about 100 ton/mtr. Above we see the lifting table if this crane that extends 4x hydraulically. The crane reaches 8,35 meter far, or 11,45 when using 2 manual extensions. Maximum load is 42 tonnes at 2 meter.
Here we have a better view on the crane. This crane has all the boom/knuckle parts in the same line, causing that the crane cannot fold as far as conventionel loader cranes can nowadays (with the telescopic boom mounted beside the upper arm). This construction method is easier and gives you a stronger crane because of the lack of uneccesary torsion on the upper arm and crane foot.
Here we see the crane is the folded position. The telescopic boom is shorter, this way it stand in the upright position during road transport. This is really a typical crane for heavy duty jobs!
