Potain extends MDT series
By Alex Dahm04 February 2009
New in Manitowoc's Potain tower crane range is the largest model in the MDT series. Two versions are available of the MDT 368. The MDT 368 L12 has 12 tonne capacity and the MDT 368 L16 is 16 tonnes.
Maximum jib length on both versions is 75 m and hook height can be up to 93.7 m. Both versions can either have the 55 kW 75 LVF 30 Optima or the 75 kW 100 LVF 30 Optima winch. On the MDT 368 L16 there is also a new trolley, the 6 DVF 6, which can reach speeds of 100 m/min with a 4 tonne load.
A new feature is the counter jib section that can be folded for transport. The 21.7 m counte rjib is too long for transport on a standard truck so there is a hinge.
