TIL shines at Excon 2017 with new cranes and reach stacker


TIL Limited participated as an Associate Sponsor at EXCON 2017 – South Asia’s largest construction equipment exhibition. EXCON is a great platform for TIL to showcase its expertise in material handling and road building solutions, developed over many decades, both in-house and by way of alliances with global technology leaders.



This year TIL launched several new products at EXCON 2017. MOBILOAD 315 is the latest entrant from TIL in the pick-n-carry crane segment. It has a maximum capacity of 15 MT at 2.5m radius over front for pick-n-carry operations and 8 MT at 2.5 m radius for 360° slew on-tyre duties. The Mobiload 315 features a 4 section boom with extended length reaching up to 17 m.  The first 3 sections are fully powered and fully synchronised and the 4th section is power-positioned. There is an optional 5 m jib extension, allowing for a total boom tip height of 24 m. Twin tyres on both front and rear allow for stable and strong on-rubber performance. Right hand front wheel drive and steer feature and the rigid chassis design give the machine a unique automotive feel and unmatched mobility. Continuous 360° slew is another unique feature that allows for efficient load handling. The ergonomically designed single man cabin enables the carriage of long items on the carry deck, subject to a maximum of 2 tons at a road speed of 15 km per hour. The machine features an electronic load moment indicator to ensure safe operations.  The engine is BS III CEV compliant. TIL – a market leader in India in higher capacity mobile cranes and material handling equipment – strengthens its foray into the pick-n-carry crane segment with a view to offering material handling customers a next generation pick-n-carry crane that embodies safety, easy operability, easy maintenance, application suitability, and competitive total cost of ownership.


“The launch of Mobiload, the versatile pick– n-carry crane epitomising productivity, superior technology and performance, is Pinaki Niyogy,VP & CTO, TIL, adding, shipping, oil re_ neries, heavy industries, and engineering sectors, in India.” RT 750 was another product launched by TIL at EXCON 2017. RT 750 is the latest addition to a comprehensive range of rough terrain cranes from TIL. It has a maximum capacity of 50 MT at 2.5 m radius with 360° slew on outriggers, and 12 MT with 360° slew on tyres. The carrier has 4x4 wheel drive and 4 wheel steer. Stand-out feature of this crane is the 5 section formed boom having an extended length of 41.3 m. Maximum boom tip height of 53.3 m can be reached with an optional 10.1 m lattice extension. The ergonomically designed, full-vision type operator’s cabin – located on the right hand side – provides fatigue free operation and excellent visibility the engine is BS III CEV compliant. Rough terrain cranes from TIL are compact and highly maneuverable, which make them performance-worthy for rough terrains and applications.



“It may be recalled that TIL holds the distinction of rolling out the first indigenously manufactured rough terrain crane in India from its Kolkata factory. With RT 750, the Company makes yet  another addition to its impressive line-up of products- that demonstrates the Company’s manufacturing prowess,” highlights Niyogy. The Hyster-TIL® ReachStacker is the product of choice for everyday container handling applications. At the official launch event at Bangalore during EXCON 2017,  Hyster-Yale Group Inc., and TIL presented the new model developed specifically to meet demands of ports and other tough container handling applications in growing markets. “_ e new Hyster TIL® RS45 is here to set a standard in low cost of ownership. However, there is no compromise on Hyster’s principles of durability and toughness,” explains Rajesh Wazarkar, MD, Hyster-Yale Lift Trucks India Pvt Ltd., components, durability and toughness, as any Hyster® Big Truck, alongside intelligent Hyster design to deliver lower fuel consumption and longer tyre life.” To optimise effectiveness, the new truck features a powerful Cummins QSL9 Stage IIIA engine/Tier 3 in combination with a Spicer off-highway TE-27 transmission. In addition to the well-tuned Cummins engine, Hyster has developed technologies such as cooling on demand, load sensing hydraulics with Variable Displacement Pump (VDP) technology, automatic throttle-up, integrated power train and optional empty seat engine shutdown, which further help reduce total fuel consumption. The durable frame and boom have been developed using extensive analysis and testing with the RS45-31CH model giving 45 T in first row, 31 T in the second row, and 15 T in the third. The longer wheel base with 8 per cent reduction in total weight results in extended tyre life. Developed to be the ‘work horse’ of applications focused on efficient every day container handling, the truck will be available in two versions, RS 45-27 and RS45-31. In 2008, TIL forged a partnership with Hyster-Yale, a global leader in counterbalance forklift trucks and warehousing solutions to offer a comprehensive range of high-capacity forklift trucks, empty and laden container handlers, and reach stackers to its customers in India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Hyster reach stackers manufactured at TIL are also sold by Hyster-Yale to customers in the Asia Pacific region. “The Hyster-TIL partnership brings together two leading companies with complementary strategic visions and product technologies, reinforced by a shared commitment to enhance customer profitability. It is unrivalled partnership has a singular objective – to meet all your material handling needs. The reach stackers are built at TIL’s factory in Kharagpur, West Bengal, India, as per Hyster design and stringent quality standards, in line with those produced at Hyster’s Nijmegen plant in the Netherlands. With confidence in the quality of TIL-built reach stackers, we are happy to put the Hyster logo on these products,” Wazarkar commented on the occasion of the product launch at EXCON 2017.


“The new RS 45 will not only be ‘Made in India’ but also partly developed in India.  The local manufacturing by TIL provides distinct competitive advantages to its customers – by reducing delivery lead times and improving total cost of ownership. In addition, customers are also able to access door step aftermarket support through a pan-Indian distribution network. The Hyster-TIL reach stacker has already become a preferred choice for customers in India, and already gained significant market share in the reach stacker market in India within a short span of time,” beams Niyogy. India has a growing market for port and container handling equipment. With increasing containerization in India, development of dedicated logistics parks for handling containerised cargo, and the growing thrust on developing container terminals along the east and west coasts of India, it is expected that significant new opportunities will open up for container handling equipment.
