Manitowoc to highlight product innovation and customer service at bC India 2016

MCT85

There will be two cranes on the Manitowoc booth at bC India 2016 together with large display pavilions, one dedicated to its Grove brand of mobile cranes and the other showcasing its leading Crane Care customer support program.

From the company’s Potain brand there will be an MCT 85 and a refurbished Igo 16 A on display. The MCT 85 is built at the Manitowoc factory in Pune and has a 5 t maximum capacity and can lift 1.1 t at its jib end of 52 m. It replaces the popular MCi 85 A, and offers improved reach, capacity, and ease of assembly. The unit is surprisingly easy to transport, with the entire top portion of the crane able to travel on just two trucks.

On-site assembly is easier since much of the pre-assembly work is taken care of at the factory before the crane is delivered to the customer. For example, the counterjib and towerhead are fitted together as a single component and can be lifted as such. Connecting the jib is made faster through the use of very simple and rapid pin-connectors. This means that the whole of the tower crane’s upperworks is connected in just two sections.

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

Next to the MCT 85 will be displayed the refurbished Igo 16 A from the Potain range of self-erecting cranes. Manitowoc will be showing the crane to highlight the quality and efficiency of its rebuild services. Refurbishing an older crane can deliver years of additional usage and boost return on investment for owners.

The Igo 16 A has a maximum capacity of 2 t and a 22 m jib. It can lift 600 kg at its jib end.
