German tower crane manufacturer Wilbert has reached a landmark with the production of its 100th machine.

The WT 650 e.tronic is the largest trolley jib crane in the Wilbert range with a maximum lifting capacity of 32 tonnes. It can lift 6.3 tonnes at a 82.5 m radius and has been delivered to Dutch crane rental company and Wilbert dealer, Lammers Bouwmaterieel BV.

Wilbert plans to move from its factory in Warmsroth to a new 160,000 m2 facility in Waldlaubersheim this year. Wilbert said it had orders for 50 tower cranes to be built in 2008.
