American HC165

​The Terex/American HC165 is an all-terrain crane with a maximum lift capacity of 165 tons. The maximum boom length is 270 feet and the maximum jib length is 80 feet.

Each HC165 is powered by a Cummins QSC8.3. This diesel engine is rated at 310 horsepower and has a 112-gallon fuel capacity to limit time wasted fueling up. The hoist system consists of two independent main and auxiliary load hoisting drums, giving the HC165 the power to compete lifts. An external contracting brake and an internal expanding band clutch are also included in the hoist system.

The hydraulic system is a high capacity open circuit system. It consists of 2 variable displacement piston pumps powering the travel and hoisting functions and 3 gear pumps providing power for the swing, the hydraulic cylinders, and the pilot pressure. The counterweight system is 7 separate pieces. These pieces are connected by pins for easy disassembly and assembly, and the separate parts of the counterweight allows for the HC165 to be shipped with only the weight it needs, saving time with setup and money on shipping. This crane will ship on 8 trucks with the offset tip boom and 80 feet of the jib.

The cab of the Terex/American HC165 was designed with comfort and safety in mind. The cab is one of the quietest in its class, allowing the operator to focus on the lift. Air conditioning and adjustable seating keep the operator comfortable and load moment indicators, easy reach controls, and other features keep the operator and those around the jobsite safe.
