NMG goes for Valla

Italian crane sales and rental company NMG Italia has agreed a new partnership with Manitex Valla.
NMG kicked off the new relationship with the purchase of the first two eight tonne V80R and 13 tonne V130RX radio remote controlled electric pick & carry cranes.

The V80R features a three section boom plus a short hydraulic swing away extension with a three tonne rating. Similar to the larger V110R, it is able to extend the distance between the counterweight and front axle by 600mm and features a front cross bar stabiliser to increase capacities by up to 40 percent.

The V130 RX also has a telescopic chassis that extends from an overall length of 3.7 metres to 4.4 metres. It features a 10 metre three section boom, to which a short hydraulically luffing jib can be added. Capacity at full height is seven tonnes, while capacity at maximum forward reach of six metres from the front bumper is just over three tonnes. Overall width is 1.5 metres with an overall height of 1.95 metres. The dual 2.1 tonne counterweights can be removed to reduce weight for transport.

Valla said: “It is certainly a great honour to operate alongside NMG Italia, both for its great knowledge of the market, its professionalism in the service provided and of course also for the great solution experience, learned over the years and in the most varied liftings and any other logistics. Our best and most advanced full electric pick & carry cranes are now at the service of this large, leading company in industrial lifting.”

NMG Italia is based in Legnago - south west of Padua, with a branch in Catania, Sicily and runs an electric crane rental fleet that includes JMG – and now Valla - pick & carry cranes along with Jekko spider cranes. It also has a strong sales and service department and a division that focuses on industrial relocations and fit outs.
