The Potain MCT 85 topless tower crane and Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane will be the major attractions at Manitowoc´s booth during Excon 2015.
At Excon 2015, Manitowoc will be exhibiting its two best-in-class cranes from Potain and Grove. The company will be showcasing the cranes at booth #OD15 in the outdoor area during South Asia´s largest construction equipment and technology trade fair at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.
Manitowoc will showcase its Potain MCT 85 topless tower crane and Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane. The MCT 85 is gaining a reputation in the region for accelerating construction schedules and working well on job sites with tight space limitations. The GMK6300L is one of the world´s best-selling cranes, due to its best-in-class boom length and capacity.
Raman Joshi, Managing Director, Manitowoc Cranes India, said the features of these two cranes are ideal for job sites in the region as they have been proven to improve return on investment for their owners.
´The Potain MCT 85 and the Grove GMK6300L cranes are designed and constructed to deliver maximum production and performance with minimum running cost,´ he said. ´As we see them deployed across India and the rest of Asia, we expect them to increase efficiency and help companies win more jobs.´
Also on the stand, Manitowoc will provide visitors with a host of information on the many services it offers to customers, including Manitowoc Crane Care, Manitowoc Finance and Lift Solutions. Manitowoc representatives will also be at the booth to answer customer questions and help companies determine the crane models that best suit their individual applications.
Potain MCT 85
Manitowoc introduced the Potain MCT 85 to the Indian market at the end of 2014, unveiling the crane to customers at the bC India trade fair. It is the successor to the MCi 85, one of Potain´s most popular cranes of recent times. The new model has a higher free-standing height, increased working speed, simplified assembly, broad load curves and lower power consumption. It has a maximum jib length of 52 m and a tip load of 1.1 t, offering better operational versatility.
The 300 t capacity Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane is one of Manitowoc´s biggest success stories. It features a class-leading 80 m main boom and independent all-wheel steering. The 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 class. It also features Grove´s unique MEGATRAK independent suspension, as well as all-wheel steer for easier navigation of job sites.
´We picked these cranes from the entire Manitowoc lineup to showcase at Excon because their features are ideal for the Indian market,´ Joshi said.
