CM 350: World debut and ready for the digital transformation.

At bauma 2022, the Industry 4.0-ready CM 350 is making its world debut, taking the next step in the evolution of the BKL System Cattaneo.

With a 35-metre radius, hook height of 23.3 metres and maximum load capacity of 4 tonnes, the workhorse with eco mode is the upgraded version of the tried-and-tested CM 82S4 and CM 300 machines. The CM 350 is equipped with 2-fall technology and is easy to set up, thanks to its hydraulic assembly and space-saving folding system. Are you interested in a fast-erecting crane in the class of a Liebherr 42 K.1 or Potain Hub 40-30? Then please do not hesitate to contact us. Data sheet

CM 415: the lattice tower crane in the 60 tonne-metre category.

The flexible climbing champion: the versatile CM 415 lattice boom crane offers a maximum load capacity of 5 tonnes and a telescopic tower with three hook heights (23.8 / 28.5 / 31.5 metres). There is no need for additional climbing tower sections, making the crane quick and easy to assemble.

If you're looking for a crane with the lifting power of the Potain Hup 40-30, Igo 50, Liebherr 53K or higher, have you considered the CM 415? With a maximum load capacity of 5 tonnes, the bottom-slewing crane can still lift 1.25 tonnes at its radius of 41 metres. Thanks to its short slewing radius of just 2.5 and 3.2 metres respectively, this is the ideal crane for your projects, for example medium-sized residential complexes. Data sheet

Stationary self-erecting cranes with a radius of up to 41 metres.

With a radius of 28 to 41 metres, hook heights of up to 25 metres and up to 4 tonnes load capacity, the BKL System Cattaneo comprises three tried-and-tested, robust, hydraulic fast-erecting cranes – optimal for a single house or small residential complexes.

In the over 30-metre radius category, which includes the Potain Igo 32 and the Liebherr 34K up to Liebherr 53K, it's worth taking a look at the CM 350, the CM 300 and the CM90S4, for example.

No matter which crane type you choose, all three will save you time and money in terms of installation and lifts. With their hydraulic assembly and space-saving folding system, the BKL System Cattaneo self-erecting cranes are raring to go in next to no time. The 2-fall technology of the hydraulic cranes enables a higher handling rate as they automatically lift with maximum drive speed, depending on the load on the hook. Overview & data sheets

Mobile roofing cranes with a radius of up to 27 metres.

Get started right away. The mobile fast-erecting cranes with a radius of 22 or 27 metres were developed especially for carpenters and roofers. To ensure rapid relocation from one construction site to the next, the cranes are fitted with an integral 25 km/h axle as standard. The CM 221A and the CM 271S1 are also available with an optional 80 km/h high-speed axle.

With their hydraulic assembly, space-saving folding system and hydraulic support, the roofing cranes can be installed quickly and easily, ready for action. The 2-fall technology of the hydraulic cranes enables a higher handling rate. And if no power connection is available, the carpenter cranes also work with 230 V as an option. Simply plug your mobile fast-erecting crane into the mains supply - and off you go. For information on features and performance data in optional operation with mains power, please contact us for further consultation.

Check out the CM 271S1 and the CM 221A if you're looking for a fast-erecting tower crane in the same class as the Liebherr 13 HM through 22 HM, Liebherr L1 24 or the Potain Igo M14: Overview & data sheets
