American HC285

The Terex/American HC285 is a 285 ton capacity crawler crane with a 300 foot maximum lift boom and fixed jib with lengths up to 100 feet.

The Terex HC285 incorporates numerous improvements over prior models. The boom is a 65ft inner/outer basic boom with available inserts in 10, 20 and 50 feet allows for any combination of boom length from 80 to 300 ft, giving the operator always the right boom length for the job. The robust engine is a Cummins Model QSL9 Tier IV diesel engine, supplying 350hp with an 180 gallon capacity. Two identical independent hoisting drums power the HC285, with a max line speed of 524fpm and single line pull rated to 54,000 pounds.

An engineered environmental operators cab is designed to provide excellent viewing range, and quiet, comfortable operation. Incorporated into the dashboard is a shockless stop system that gradually slows operating speed to reduce shocks when crane approaches lifting load or boom limits. Two speed travel allows operator to select the best speed and power control for any condition.

The HC285 was built for superior transportability, with traveling dimensions of 10.5 height and 12 feet width, and a hydraulic counterweight removal system simplifies installation and removal. Not including the counterweight, the basic HC285 will transport on a standard lowboy trailer.
