It also allows crane to be set up at constricted sites generally at Metro and industrial construction sites in India and have more capacity over outrigger direction with less counterweight. This will be a big feature as it will allow crane to work in congested job site areas in India with best capacities. Also Vario ballast give the facility to increase counterweight radius to get better capacity with same counterweights. Eco mode allows the crane to reduce fuel consumption without compromising on work efficiency."
