SB Rail begins testing new Kirow KRC 250 with extending counterweight

17th March 2016

SB Rail has started testing its latest fleet addition, the Kirow KRC 250 with extending counterweight at Leeds Holbeck.

The new KRC 250 will supplement and enhance SB Rail’s fleet of cranes allowing a greater range of lifting operations to be performed, including at locations sensitive to higher axle loads.

The extending counterweight distributes load over the wheel-sets more evenly, bringing more lifting scenarios within acceptable working limits, simplifying operations and reducing the burden of heightened survey requirements over certain structures.

SB Rail’s investment in multi-purpose crane technology is helping to meet industry efficiency targets and improve safety by delivering greater outputs with fewer site personnel.
