SCHWING–XCMG Crawler cranes feature integratedtransport design to reduce assembly time, while the modular design of sameplatform products ensures inter-changeability of components and nesting ofsmaller booms inside larger booms to reduce the number of trailers required fortransport. The company has also introduced the ‘Counterweight AssemblyCylinders’ feature in some of their models as required ensuring fasterassembly.

Tyre mounted cranes feature sliders to increasecontact area between boom sections, thus improving overall integrity ofextended boom structure. Patented Telescoping technology controls boomextension and retraction sequences for smoother operation of telescopic boom.
