N.C. Nielsen's "truly heavy-duty reachstacker"
N.C. Nielsen has revealed its plans to build "a truly heavy-duty reachstacker".

The new heavyweight is based on a Konecranes 4545. It will have a net weight of 110 T, a width of 4.9 metres, a length with the boom down of 15 m and lift capability of 152 T from its hook.

The entire geometry of the machine will be reconfigured with a reinforced boom, increased counterweight, larger lifting cylinders, 2 m high decks and a withdrawn undercarriage which makes it easy to come close to the target item.

"Most components of our new reachstacker have been enlarged. It takes numerous calculations, trial assemblies and tests to succeed," says technical manager Per Nielsen. "However, after a very exciting development process, our engineers managed to find the ‘formula’ for our new reachstacker."

Preparations at N.C. Nielsen are well under way and the first reachstacker is expected to be ready for delivery by the end of 2017. The bespoke reachstackers are being built at the factory in Balling, and N.C. Nielsen expects to put a minor series of the machines into production in 2018 to meet the increasing demand for extremely heavy lifts.
