It can be used boom mounted on 36 tonne carriers upwards and when stick mounted on 77 tonne machines upwards. The rotating version shares the same jaw dimensions, weighs 9,090 kg (20,000 lb) and can be used boom mounted on 45.5 tonne carriers and above and when stick mounted on 82 tonne machines and above.
