Sany launches SAC600E all terrain crane to UK market25 October 2023
Sany marks dedicated UK crane division with launch of 60-tonne, three-axle SAC6000E all terrain.
Chinese construction equipment manufacturer Sany has established a direct sales channel in the UK through its new Sany Cranes UK division, located in in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, operating from the premises of existing Sany business, Putzmeister UK.
The Sany Cranes UK division is headed up by Andrew Snow, who joined in April, and has been appointed Country Manager UK & Republic of Ireland. As UK manager for crane products Snow is overseeing all aspects of operations, sales, and customer support.
Snow has over 20 years industry experience having joined from Tadano UK and, prior to that, he worked at Terex and Demag.
The first crane available directly through Sany Cranes UK is the 60 tonne capacity SAC600E all terrain which is currently being showcased at a series of launch events around the country. The crane is a proven model already working on a number of sites across Europe.
The SAC600E is powered by a MTU OM470LA Stage V engine coupled with Allison transmission driven by Kessler axle. It is fitted with a 50m main boom, with the option of 16m double folding jib, and it can travel with 13 tonnes of counterweight ¬– within UK STGO regulations.
"Sany is committed to delivering high-quality cranes to our clients in the UK," said Snow. “In addition, we can now support our customers directly with spare parts and service.
“We have already seen success and product acceptance in other European countries and now Sany aims to establish itself as a leading provider of cranes in the UK as well.
“The UK is a core market for cranes in Europe and so establishing a dedicated direct sales channel for cranes fits with the company’s aim to be a key player in the European, and global, crane market.”
Also available through Sany Cranes UK are two telescopic crawler cranes (60 and 80 tonne models), with two new larger models due in 2024, and a range of lattice boom crawler cranes (60, 100, 135, 260 and 400 tonne models). “These are already available for sale and we are currently offering quotes to customers,” says Snow. “With regards to our all terrains, we also have 120-tonne four-axle and 250-tonne five axle models due soon.”
The next ‘launch event’ for Sany Cranes UK’s SAC600E is at Anlore Plant & Haulage in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, on 31st October to 2nd November. It is an open event and booking is not required.
