The new longer boom will provide excellent relative stiffness in long reach applications making it attractive to steel erectors and other duty cycle applications where production work is key, the company said. The TC65159 will offer asymmetrical outrigger positioning, and increased ground penetration allowing the operator more flexibility to set up in confined spaces and uneven terrain.

 “Manitex is pleased to launch a 65-ton [60 tonne] high reach truck mounted crane with asymmetric outriggers,” said Jeff Long, general manager, Manitex. ”At the same time, Manitex is pleased to announce the TC60131 will be upgraded to 65-ton [60 tonne] base rating beginning with new deliveries effective January of 2021. We continue to listen to our dealers and end-users to develop new, higher capacity cranes that are well-suited for a wide variety of market applications and offer the overall benefits of a commercial chassis vs a traditional truck mounted crane.”
