HS 8040.1 Duty cycle crawler crane

With a maximum lifting capacity of 40 tonnes, the HS 8040.1 is the smallest in the proven HS series. However, when it comes to compactness, it comes up trumps. A transport weight of less than 40 tonnes makes it the perfect choice if the machine has to be transferred frequently between job sites.
Max. lifting capacity 40 t
Engine power 230 kW
Max. winch line pull 2 x 120 kN
Max. main boom 41.00 m

Features

Designed for dynamic tasks

Designed for dynamic tasks

The uppercarriage with its robust design is mounted on a solid undercarriage featuring wide tracks and long crawlers for a high level of stability. more

Safety

Safety

The rails and walkways on the uppercarriage, which enable safe access to all service and maintenance points, do not have to be dismounted during transportation.

A-Frame

A-Frame

The improved A-frame system with transport position to the front does not only shorten the transport length but also simplifies erection or lowering of the boom, as well as setting-up of the machine.

Flexibility in operation

Flexibility in operation

Thanks to the modular concept in combination with a variety of equipment options, the crane can be configured for its special job: This includes working with slurry wall grab and casing oscillator, material loading with grab or drag bucket, dynamic soil compaction as well as dredging. more

Intelligent crane control

Intelligent crane control

The crane control system offers a multitude of programme and control options. Color displays clearly provide service and machine data. All movements can be carried out simultaneously. The operator thus benefits from a facilitated handling of the rig. Furthermore, quick working cycles are achieved.

Low transport weight

Low transport weight

Thanks to its transport weight of less than 40 t including counterweight, the machine can be easily and flexibly transferred between job sites.

Comfort

Comfort

This includes a modern air-conditioning system with improved airflow, an optimized field of vision and reduced noise protection, as well as an orthopaedic operator’s seat with integrated heating and cooling.

Performance

Performance

Thanks to the optimization of the complete drive system the duty cycle crawler crane can perform even more efficiently.

Optimal design

Optimal design

Engine power, free-fall winches and boom length are optimally matched to one another.

Compact

Compact

The standard version impresses with the most compact swinging radius in its class, namely 3.5 m. Thus, the duty cycle crawler crane can fully utilize its manoeuvrability in confined spaces and is highly flexible in its application.

High service availability

High service availability

A global service network with experienced technicians and fast access to spare parts ensure high machine availability and a long product service life.

Accessories

Automated control system for dynamic soil compaction

Automated control system for dynamic soil compaction

For dynamic soil compaction an automated control system can be used. It allows for precise operating cycles and minimizes rope wear.

Slurry wall grab control

Slurry wall grab control

This is an electronic control for precise lowering of the grab. It protects the grab during positioning, prevents caving in of the trench due to high speeds, saves fuel, and is simple to handle.

Control system for dragline operation

Control system for dragline operation

The "interlock" control system for dragline operations ensures powered lowering with drag winch, while lifting of the bucket with the hoist winch. This reduces fuel consumption and minimizes wear of the free fall brake.

Electronic evaluation of working processes

Electronic evaluation of working processes

With the PDE process data recording system machine data is recorded during the working process. With PDR these data can be managed, displayed tabularly or graphically, and analyzed. In combination with the telematics system LiDAT these reports can be easily generated from the office. more

Fleet management and teleservice

Fleet management and teleservice

The data transmission and positioning system “LiDAT” provides important information on the operation of the machine. With these data the operation becomes more efficient. Various additional modules allow machine data reporting or access through service engineers via teleservice. more

Automatic engine stop

Automatic engine stop

The machine can optionally be equipped with an automatic engine stop control. Thanks to this feature it automatically switches off during longer work breaks after evaluating several machine parameters. This is fuel saving and environmentally friendly.

Eco silent mode

Eco silent mode

With the eco silent mode the engine speed can be reduced to a predefined, required level. With this feature a notable reduction in diesel consumption can be achieved without any impact on operational output. Noise emissions are thus also lowered.

Longer uppercarriage

Longer uppercarriage

The version with longer uppercarriage has the counterweight and therefore the centre of gravity further to the rear. This means the lifting capacities are significantly increased, which is a big advantage especially in dragline operation.

Applications

Vibrating

Vibrating

Vibrating allows for installing and extracting elements using harmonious vibration. more

Drilling with bored pile grab

Drilling with bored pile grab

Drilling with bored pile grab is a dry drilling method loosening the building ground either by cutting or by impacting – depending on the working tool used. more

Impact compaction

Impact compaction

For impact compaction a tamper weight is dropped to the ground from a great height.

Slurry wall installation with grab

Grab operation

Grab operation

Fitted with a range of different mechanical or hydraulic grabs, duty cycle crawler cranes are used for typical material handling tasks with large working radii. more

Dragline operation

Dragline operation

Typical applications with dragline bucket include the excavation of various bulk goods, such as gravel and sand, from rivers or quarries. more
