Manitowoc Cranes Australia has stopped distributing the Tidd PC25 pick & carry crane. The 25 tonne articulated crane is manufactured in Hamilton, New Zealand by Tidd Ross Todd Ltd, the Grove, Manitowoc and Potain dealer.

Manitowoc Australia began selling the crane in June of last year, in order to have a product to compete with the Terex Franna pick & carry cranes, which are very popular in the region. However it has now released a statement that says: “Manitowoc no longer feels able to properly support and market the PC25, in addition to its own full range of mobile, crawler and tower cranes”.

Tidd Ross will now sell and support the PC25 directly in both New Zealand and Australia.

Kelvin Kent, general manager for Manitowoc Cranes Australia and New Zealand said: “We were happy to offer the PC25 pick and carry crane to our customers as it’s a product we don’t currently build ourselves. However, with the sales market for cranes under pressure in Australia, we no longer felt we could support and develop this crane in the manner it needed. This feeling is understood by TRT."

"The relationship between our company and TRT stretches back four decades and we will continue to work together as partners for the sale of Manitowoc products in New Zealand. We also wish TRT well as they develop their own sales network for the PC25 directly. Manitowoc remains available to assist TRT if needed in Australia.”
