Manitowoc will roll out its new 165 tonne MLC165 lattice-boom crawler crane at Bauma.
Buyers will have a choice of either a 224 kW Cummins Tier III or a 239 kW Cummins Euromot 3B engine both coupled with a new open-loop hydraulic system - served by two variable displacement piston pumps. Maximum load moment is 762 tonne metres.
Global product director Jerry Maloney 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 three metre component width and modular assemblies for easy transport. It is loaded with all the latest technology to benefit everyone from owners to the operator.”
Steven Dick, technical sales support coordinator, added: “Our engineers designed the MLC165 to facilitate general contractor activities like pile driving and moderate clamshell or grapple work. We like to think of the MLC165 as a versatile tool.”
Orders will be taken at Bauma and shipments are due to begin in the third quarter.
