Introducing the largest crawler crane in Australia

SINCE 1938, Tutt Bryant’s ‘think big’ philosophy has had a constant presence in all of its business operations.

Tutt Bryant has always maintained that in order to stay ahead of the pack, it must continue to ‘think big’. This policy has been implemented throughout all facets of the company and its activities, whether it is shifting and lifting monumental facilities or providing all-inclusive turnkey solutions.

In the case of the company’s new CC8800-1 crawler crane, it has taken a somewhat literal approach to its philosophy: the recently acquired CC8800-1 is the first of its kind in Australia and will operate as the largest conventional crawler crane based in the country.

Boasting a 1600t lifting capacity and a maximum load moment of 24,002 metric tonnes, the crane is a game-changing addition to Tutt Bryant’s extensive portfolio of cranes and heavy lifting


Featuring a flexible pick-and-carry and high-availability design, the CC8800-1 offers significant efficiencies in the erection and installation of large-scale facilities when compared to alternate methods such as ring lift cranes and jacking towers.

With final testing and separate configuration builds complete, Tutt Bryant’s CC8800-1 is ready for its first commissioning at BP Cracker, WA.

Tutt Bryant Heavy Lift & Shift general manager Rob West said he was pleased to be in possession of Australia’s first 1600t crawler crane.

“The arrival of the CC8800-1 marks a new milestone for the Tutt Bryant Group and we look forward to providing more efficient and flexible solutions for our client’s heavy lift and shift projects,” Mr West said.
