Kato launches new city cranes

Kato has launched new versions of two of its city type All Terrain crane range, the 13 tonne CR-130Rf and the 20 tonne CR-200Rf.

The new models, designed for the European market, have been updated from the company's current 13 and 20 tonne models, the CR-130Ri and CR-200Ri respectively. 

The updated Kato cranes include a host of new features


The new cranes retain most of the structural elements of the i models, including the 24 metre six section boom and 5.5 telescopic offsetable jib on the CR-130, and the 28 metre boom - 5.8 metre jib on the CR-200 – but include a host of new features, such as: 

- New cleaner Stage IV diesels – Hino on the CR-130, Cummins on the CR-200
- A higher - 62 kph/38.5 MPH - maximum road speed
- A completely redesigned operators cab, with greater glazed area, improved information displays and a slew of operator comfort features
- Automatic outrigger levelling with five extension widths, a standard Parking Distance Assist system with sensors front and rear, rear view cameras, and standard two position 3,000kg searcher hooks

The standard three tonne searcher hook


Hiroshi Ide of Kato said: “Introducing new models to the European market and growing our product range together with our customer base in Europe is a key focus for us. The Rf Series are impressive machines, and we look forward to delivering the first units over the Summer”

Colin Cleary managing director of Kato dealer Rivertek Services added: “We intend to display the new models for the first time in Europe at Vertikal Days. Many of the enhancements and new features are a direct result of feedback between Kato engineers and UK crane users.”
