Zoomlion Europe Exhibits its RTC 500 Rough Terrain Crane and New AWPs at Samoter 2023

Zoomlion Europe will be at Samoter with lifting products that, four years after being introduced on the European market with the opening of the Italian hub – with headquarters in Senago (Milan) and a distribution and service centre in Solferino (Northern Italy) – are available in complete, optimised ranges to meet practical operator requirements.

You will be able to see the RTC 500 rough terrain crane and the leading aerial work platform models on stands 21-24 (area F). RTC 500 rough terrain crane A lightweight crane, designed and built in Italy specifically for the Italian market, is powerful and has a maximum load capacity of 50 tons. It features a 37.1-metre four-section telescopic boom with two extension modes and continuous 360° rotation. It has a stage V diesel engine and load-sensing hydraulics to combine the highest performance on the construction site with the highest efficiency. These features, combined with its extremely compact size, make the RTC 500 ideal for working in spaces with limited room for movement and perfect for pick&carry operations. Transport from one construction site to another is quick, easy, and requires no special permits.


The innovative traction and suspension system ensures unbeatable performance in off-road applications. Very popular with operators is the ergonomic driving cab – which can be tilted 20° to improve visibility – with large windows for an optimal view while driving and lifting, equipped with large touchscreen display and electronic joysticks for movement control. Aerial work platforms Electrification is their trademark feature; the aim is to increase the use of electrics more and more, introducing them even in historically diesel-powered families, to ensure a significant reduction in costs and greater efficiency.
