New Potain MCT 565

30 July 2018

USA-headquartered crane manufacturer Manitowoc is launching the Potain MCT 565 flat top tower crane. It will be sold in all markets served by the Potain factory in China.

According to Manitowoc, the MCT 565 is the largest flat top crane being built at its factory in Zhanjiangang, China. Its increased capacity options reflect the growing scale of projects in the region. It will be officially launched at the Bauma China trade show in November 2018.

The MCT 565 will be available in three versions, offering customers a choice of maximum capacities: 20, 25, and 32 tonnes. All three have a maximum jib length of 80 metres. They feature a compact design that enables easy transport, claimed Manitowoc, with the basic crane being able to be shipped in nine containers. The crane needs two days for erection and has one of the best load charts in its class, the company added.

The crane has been shown to a group of 40 potential customers from across the Asia-Pacific region. In addition to the preview of the MCT 565, Manitowoc said the customers were shown production improvements at its manufacturing plant and visited the new Product Verification Centre, where component testing is done. “The Manitowoc Way is about a customer-centric approach to business,” said Brian Wang, senior vice president for APAC for Manitowoc Cranes. “Hosting this visit for our Asia-Pacific customers enabled us to showcase our manufacturing processes. This helped reinforce the confidence they have in our cranes and their reliability. It was also a good opportunity for us to get feedback from customers.”
