This year's bauma China 2014 in Shanghai will see Manitowoc introduce two new topless tower cranes MCT 205 and MCT 85 from its Potain brand. The new models are the latest innovations from the company's Zhangjiagang plant in China, which earlier this year celebrated the delivery of its 5,000th crane since production began in 2006. Also on the company's booth (Stand A.02) will be an RT890E rough-terrain crane from the Grove range of mobile cranes.

Potain MCT 205

The MCT 205 on the Manitowoc booth has a 10t maximum capacity and this can lift 1.75t at its maximum jib end of 65m.

Leong Kwong-Joon, regional product manager for tower cranes at Manitowoc Cranes, explains that growing time pressures on job sites led the introduction of the MCT 205 and MCT 85 tower cranes.

"In China and across the rest of Asia, we're seeing contractors wanting to place more tower cranes on job sites to accelerate construction schedules. Because topless cranes have no cat head at the top, it's easier to overlap the mand overall crane working heights don't need to be so high. Topless cranes are also faster and easier to erect. As a result, we expect strong interest in the new MCT 205 and MCT 85 cranes at bauma China."

Potain MCT 85

The MCT 85, is smaller than the MCT 205, with a 5t maximum capacity and an ability to lift 1.1 t at its jib end of 52 m. This practical unit is surprisingly easy to transport, with the entire top portion of the crane being able to travel on just two trucks.

Again, on-site assembly is simplified thanks to the pre-assembly work done at the Zhangjiagang factory before the crane is delivered to the customer.

Like the MCT 205, the MCT 85 can be operated as an internal climbing crane, sitting inside the building it is constructing. Mounted on its 1.2m mast sections, the crane offers a maximum free-standing height of 33.2m when operating internally.

Grove RT890E

Manitowoc Grove Crane
From Manitowoc's mobile crane brand, Grove, there will be an 80t capacity RT890E at bauma China. This rough-terrain crane has a 43.2m main boom with Megaform shaping for greater rigidity. Reach can be extended further to 72.5m through the use of jib extensions.

Teo Yew Boon, Manitowoc's product manager for mobile cranes Greater Asia-Pacific, says Grove RT cranes are often known as the most dependable pieces of equipment on site.

"The RT890E is popular on industrial sites across China for its ability to deliver consistent performance even in the toughest landscapes," he says. "Maintenance is straight forward and the crane delivers more than its competitors in terms of capacity, reach and power."

The Grove RT890E's counter weight and auxiliary hoist can both be removed for easier transportation between jobs. The all-steel vision cab offers excellent visibility while its acoustic lining and ergonomic layout improves operator efficiency. Power for the RT890E comes from a 205 kW Cummins engine that offers plenty of power.
