New launches from Manitowoc at the show will include the 20 tonne capacity Potain MCT 385, the first topless tower crane Manitowoc has built in Asia.

Manitowoc's stand will feature the new MCT 385, the first topless tower crane it has produced at its factory in Zhangjiagang, China. Manitowoc says it has built the crane to appeal to Asian buyers, and describes it as a cost-effective and powerful unit.

It has a maximum free standing height of 64.9 m, while when anchored to a structure, the hook height can be as much as 50 m above the last tie point. Maximum capacity is 20 tonnes.

The company's mobile crane range will be represented by the Grove GMK6300L. This 300 tonne capacity unit features an 80 m boom, and it can lift as much as 12 tonnes when fully extended without the need for a jib or other attachments.

Manitowoc also said it hoped to exhibit a new model from its Manitowoc Dongyue range of truck cranes built at its joint-venture factory in Tai'an.
