Manitowoc will introduce a 165 tonne capacity lattice boom crawler crane at the Bauma 2013 construction equipment exhibition in Munich, Germany.
The MLC165 has a maximum boom length of 84 metres and fixed jib and luffing jib options. With a fixed jib the maximum boom length is 93.4 m (69 m main + 24.4 m jib). With a luffing jib this reach increases to 102.8 m (51 m main + 51.8 m jib). Its maximum load moment is 762 tonne-metres.
The crawler crane comes with either a 224 kW Cummins Tier III engine or a 239 kW Cummins Euromot 3B engine.
Jerry Maloney, global product director at Manitowoc, said, “This self-rigging crane is very easy to assemble and disassemble. It can install and remove its own counterweights and tracks without the need of a support crane. In addition, it has a 3 m component width and modular assemblies for easy transport over the road. It is loaded with all the latest technology to benefit everyone from owners to the operator.”
