Jekko has announced plans to launch a one tonne MPK10 mini pick & carry crane/glass handler following the success of its 600kg MPK06.
Details of the new model - which is due to be launched in the coming months - have not been disclosed however it is thought it will offer ‘similar characteristics and features’ as the MPK06 launched last year – see: New Jekko mini crane. Since its launch last year Jekko has sold more than 80 MPK06 cranes, accounting for more than half of the total number of sales forecasted for the year. 40 of the units have been sold in France and Germany, while the remaining shipments are spread of over the rest of Europe, the Americas and the Middle East.
Jekko sales director Alberto Franceschini, said: “The MPK06 drew the attention of both established and new customers right after the official launch, but we weren’t expecting such a big success in recent months. The budget for 2021 was set at 160 units and around 80 machines have already been delivered. Following its success, we are now working on a new MPK10 minipicker with similar characteristics and strengths to its “smaller brother”. The model will be presented in the following months.
We will of course provide details of the MPK10 as and when we are able.
