Prashant Suryawanshi Managing Director - Manitowoc Cranes India
We will display our best in class Potain MCT 205 topless tower crane which is fresh off the production line at our factory in Pune, alongside our popular Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane, at booth #OD69, which we will be sharing with TIL, our dealer in India for Grove mobile and Manitowoc crawler cranes.

Increase in high-rise construction and demand for faster building times is seeing growing demand for cranes with increased lifting capacities.
The Potain MCT 205 and Grove GMK6300L cranes are designed and constructed to deliver maximum productivity and performance with minimum running cost. Both cranes offer increased lifting capacities, which is vital for Indian job sites, where high-rise construction with faster completion times is seeing increasing demand.

The Potain MCT 205 has a maximum capacity of 10 t while at its 65 m jib end it can handle an impressive 1.75 t. The crane’s modern topless design makes it quick to erect and easy to transport, with the heaviest group of components weighing less than 6 t, while the full 65 m jib can be placed in a single lift or in multiple lifts, depending on the size of the assist crane and/or the space available on the jobsite.

The MCT 205 is well-established in Asia since its launch in 2014 and has gained a reputation for accelerating construction schedules and working well on crowded jobsites where space is limited. As a tried and tested model, it has seen success outside India as well, in countries like Vietnam, Indonesia and the Middle East.

Previously, the Potain MCT 205 was manufactured only at the Manitowoc factory in Zhangjiagang, China. Manitowoc is now manufacturing the tower crane at its factory in Pune to meet the growing demand for this crane locally. Plus, manufacturing in Pune offers customers shorter lead time and quicker parts availability.

Manitowoc Cranes

The 300t capacity Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane is one of Manitowoc’s biggest success stories.
GMK6300L is amongst the best-selling six-axle all-terrain cranes of all time, with one of the best-in-class boom lengths and excellent lifting capacity. Over 200 cranes were sold within the first few years of its launch. It features a 80 m main boom and independent all-wheel steering, while its cab is considered to be the most comfortable and advanced in the industry.

Besides offering exceptional reach, the crane is also relatively compact and offers excellent on-site flexibility with a choice of five available outrigger positions, more than any other crane in this capacity. It also features Grove’s unique MEGATRAK independent suspension, as well as all-wheel steer for easier navigation of job sites.

“We picked these two best-in-class cranes (Potain MCT 205 and Grove GMK6300L) to showcase at Excon because their features are ideal for India’s infrastructure revolution. We look forward to meeting with existing and new customers and sharing solutions that will improve their business and ROI.”
