In March, Zoomlion and Global Crane Sales agreed to partner in distributing Zoomlion rough-terrain cranes worldwide. Global is headquartered in Houston, Texas, and has sales and distribution offices worldwide. This partnership marks the first time Zoomlion, one of the largest Chinese crane manufacturers, has engineered and built RT cranes for the western market.
Zoomlion has created four RT models: The 40-ton RT35; the 60-ton RT55; the 80-ton RT75; and the 110-ton RT100.Global will also be distributing several Zoomlion Tower Cranes newly created for the American market. These cranes were specially designed for worldwide distribution. After consultation with the world’s top crane experts, Zoomlion engineered each RT model to have the maximum capacity at radius for its weight class.
Interested buyers will be able to take delivery of these cranes in mid-July, 2010, according to Global, who will be exhibiting the ZL RT55, an RT with a 55-ton capacity, at bauma.
