Kato Rafter Crane vs Kobelco Rough Terrain

While getting into the introduction between Kato Rafter Crane vs Kobelco Rough Terrain. There are yet so many differences when it comes to machines between Kato Rafter Crane vs Kobelco Rough Terrain. Considering the Kato Rafter Crane, it has the capacity to drive both on rough roads and at high-speed on highways, dependable safety devices, durability, and ease of maintenance. While on the other hand, Kobelco Rough Terrain consists of a hydraulic piston motor that drives the swing pinion through a deck-mounted planetary gear reducer for 360˚ continuous rotation.

The machine is useful for different purposes. Now let us through this article get deep into the topic of these two. Here we are going to discuss a lot more about the Kato Rafter Crane vs. Kobelco Rough Terrain.

Kato Rafter Crane

Kato Rafter Crane is unleashing its new truck crane series, the GT-750EL, GT-600EL, and GT-300EL. They manifest respective maximum lifting capacities of 75 metric tons (GT-750EL), 60 metric tons (GT-600EL), and 30 metric tons (GT-300EL). Their boom measurements consist of 47.0 m, 43.0 m, and 34.0 m respectively. The introduction of GT-750EL and Gt-600EL is going to start from October 2017 and the GT-300EL is going to happen in spring 2018.

Product Concept

In the growing markets, there is an immense demand from customers for high-quality truck cranes with high lifting performance, the capacity to drive both on rough roads and at high-speed on highways, dependable safety devices, durability, and ease of maintenance. Nowadays, customers are looking for truck cranes that are “crafted in Japan” and provide good value throughout the life cycle of the crane including value for used cranes. Apart from it, there is a requirement in left-hand traffic countries for right-hand drive vehicles. In order to meet these requirements, Kato Rafter Crane is providing this new “crafted-in-Japan” quality, high performance, comfortable, and a durable line-up of truck cranes having an option for either right-hand or left-hand drive.

New Carriers with High Drivability

Kato Rafter Crane is accompanied by leaf suspensions in front and rubber mounted suspensions, newly developed in collaboration with Hendrickson, in the rear. They conduct many tests for high-speed travel and durability on rough roads. You may find comfort to drive the crane with a convenient cruise control option. Moreover, they are easy to maintain. They also consist of a new cab, which tantamounts to driver safety with the introduction of an automatic transmission.

New Smart Chart System

Outriggers are able to extend with conventional cranes, to their maximum length, circular rated load capacity footprints over 360° of slewing angle. However, due to Kato Rafter Crane’s newly developed Smart Chart, a safety device and control system, the crane is able to achieve a square-shaped rated load capacity footprint, with extended “corners” over the rear outriggers. This also increases the load radius depending on the degree to which there is an extension in the outriggers.

Good Fuel Economy

The GT-750EL, GT-600EL, and GT-300EL come equipped with Kato Rafter Crane’s ‘s state-of-the-art fuel monitoring system. It is Eco-friendly, which further reduces fuel consumption when the crane is about to operate. The Positive Control, which lessens fuel consumption when the crane is on standby.

Upper Structure

Swing Unit: A hydraulic piston motor stimulates the swing pinion via deck-mounted planetary gear reducer for 360˚ persistent rotation. Hydraulic flow into the swing motor is further controlled by a manual valve in the swing circuit. The brake valve aids the operator to select free or automatic braking when the swing control lever is set in neutral.

  1. Swing Parking Brake: manual disc brake
  2. Swing Gear: Internal spur gear
  3. Slewing Ring: Important and goes parallel with the swing gear, with a Single row of ball bearings.
  4. Swing Speed: 3.06 min-1(rpm)

Winches: Mounting of side by side, power hoisting and lowering with inching capability. Hydraulic motor drive, spurs gear reduction, and counterbalance valve.

Clutches: Internal-expanding, hydraulic shoe type

BRAKES: Band type, with positive and negative brake modes.

WIRE ROPES: Principal hoist: IWRC 6 x Fi (29) c/o 16 mm dia. x 170 m, hard twist rope

Secondary hoist: IWRC 6 x Ws (26) c/o 16 mm dia. x 92 m, hard twist rope

BOOM HOIST: One-double acting hydraulic cylinder with holding valve.

BOOM TELESCOPE: two hydraulic cylinders consist of full power telescoping with holding valves and telescoping assistance cables for the boom tip section.

Controls

It consists of four adjustable hand control levers for swing, main=winch, auxiliary winch (with pedal), and boom hoist (with pedal). These can be tilted in three neutral positions and stored in their bases when not in use.

Other controls include

For main and auxiliary, there consist of two short levers winch clutches and negative brake ON-OFF. One short lever is for swing parking brake; one lever must for telescope; one lever consists of telescope change. Moreover, one lever for transmission gear selection; swing lock pin; winch drum lock knobs; two pedals for main and auxiliary winch drum brakes; throttle control; and one travel brake pedal.

Engineering

Ironmaking plants (direct reduction), other plants, and equipment (pelletizing, petrochemical, etc.). It is also inclusive of nuclear power-related plants, erosion control, and disaster prevention structures, civil engineering, advanced urban transit systems.

Verdict

Both are powerful in their own space. The two of them have different features so it is not possible to decide which one is better. Kato Rafter Crane has the capacity to drive both on rough roads and at high-speed on highways, dependable safety devices, durability, and ease of maintenance. While a Kobelco Rough Terrain consists of a hydraulic piston motor drives the swing pinion through a deck-mounted planetary gear reducer for 360˚ continuous rotation. From an engineering point of view, each one has a different purpose to serve.

So it is suggestive to access Japanese Car Trade to get better results.
