Zoomlion creates the world’s largest luffing tower crane, capable of lifting 120 tonnes, the equivalent of 17 elephants
CHANGDE, China, Oct. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology Co, (01157.HK), a leading Chinese maker of engineering and agricultural equipment, has set a new world record with the world’s largest crane, the LH3350-120, which came off the assembly line on October 16. The LH3350-120 is a super-heavy internal climbing luffing tower crane with a maximum lifting capacity of 120 tons, the equivalent of 17 adult elephants.
"The launch of the LH3350-120, the world’s largest internal climbing luffing tower crane, marks a milestone in Zoomlion’s mastery of core technologies in luffing tower cranes. The new lead achieved by Zoomlion, will lead the Chinese construction machinery industry to a new level, further expanding the influence and competitiveness of Chinese brands in the global tower crane market," said Tang Shaofang, Assistant President of Zoomlion and General Manager of Zoomlion Construction Hoisting Machinery Co..
The international luffing tower crane market has seen growing demand for larger products. Mega sized internal climbing tower cranes have become the power player in super high-rise building constructions as they are capable of lifting substantial weight at height while excelling in obstacle avoidance.
The LH3350-120 model highlights efficiency and cost-effectiveness:
- With a lifting speed of 100m/min, it guarantees working efficiency while being capable of ensuring accuracy at a minimum rate of 8.5mm/s;
- It has a 73-metre internal climbing shaft, a new world record for the industry.
- It reduces construction costs by 35 percent by decreasing the climbing frequency at an altitude of 600 meters in super high-rise building constructions;
- Compared to similar products, the LH3350-120 has a cross-sectional area of 3.25m x 3.25m, which improves adaptability in narrower construction conditions.
In addition, the 120-ton giant is more convenient and efficient to assemble, disassemble and transport – courtesy of the model’s trussed balance boom connected to an upper bearing and standard knot positioning pin shaft and bolted connection.
The LH3350-120 also features core intelligent and networked technologies such as electro-hydraulic proportional control, hydraulic drive and remote management.

"As the rate of urbanization continues to increase, super high-rise buildings that serve as city landmarks will become the norm. As more and more daring architectural dreams are thought off, Zoomlion will be on hand to make those dreams a reality," said Tang.
