XCA4000 Breaks Wheeled Crane Record

China builds some of the world's biggest wheeled cranes.

At a 200-megawatt wind farm in Hengshui, China’s Hebei province, the world’s largest wheeled crane, XCA4000, showed its power by lifting a 130-metric-ton nacelle, a 40-ton hub, and three 95-meter-long blades weighing 28 tons each, to a height of 162 meters for assembly.

With a 4,000-ton lifting capacity, the XCA4000 marks the seventh time that Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group, the machine’s builder, broke the global record for the largest wheeled crane.

The launch of the XCA4000 is significant for the global wind power equipment manufacturing industry as turbines today increasingly adopt larger and heavier models, which require higher lifting capacities and heights while ensuring safety.

The XCA4000 can hoist 230 tons of equipment to a height of 170 meters. With advanced technologies, the XCA4000 also solves problems that were commonly seen in cranes, such as reduced lifting performance at high altitudes and limited space beneath turbine lifting hooks, enabling a 20-30% reduction in time required to install wind turbines and significantly enhancing efficiency in wind power construction projects.

The XCA4000 is also equipped with a self-developed control system and technologies to ensure safety during operation.
