Details of the new models are being disclosed as the show opens, but Manitowoc says that other Potain models featuring on the stand include the MDT 489 topless crane and the Igo T 99 self-erecting crane, both making their trade show debuts.
The MDT 489 is aimed at construction and infrastructure projects, especially the installation of large, prefabricated components. It comes in two versions, with 20tonne and 25tonne maximum capacity. Both can work with up to 80m of jib.
The Potain Igo T 99, meanwhile, is a telescopic self-erecting crane that offers a six tonne maximum capacity, 48m reach, and 38.5m height under hook.
Thibaut Le Besnerais, vice-president for brand and product management, tower cranes said, “There is so much focus on infrastructure right now that we want to show how Potain offers solutions for all applications. One of our key goals is to highlight how the right combination of cranes and customer support can help drive the sector forward.”
