The Manitowoc Potain tower crane factory in Charlieu, France, has celebrated building the 1,000 unit of the Igo T 85.

The 6 tonne capacity self erecting tower crane has been sent to a Benelux customer. It offers a 45 m lifting radius and 38 metre hook height. Launched in 2008, it is a model popular in Germany, France, Asia and the USA, Manitowoc said. An upgrade in 2011 gave rise to the Igo T 85 A with a new slewing system and an additional mast section. Residential construction is one of several primary target applications for this model.
