Potain once again showcased the strength of its self-erecting crane range at Batimat 2017. From November 6-10, Potain occupied both indoor and outdoor booths at Batimat, displaying two Igo M cranes that are ideal for small contractors and other lifters that require compact, easily transportable lifting solutions.
Both of the cranes that Potain exhibited are from the Igo M range, which the company specifically designed to be used on smaller job sites or those with tight working quarters. This range of self-erecting cranes is extremely productive and easy to use. One of the two cranes was the Igo MA 21, a new model for the French market that also features new transport options.
The Igo MA 21 has a 1.8 t capacity and a maximum jib length of 26 m. Its maximum capacity at jib end is 0.7 t and its height under hook can reach 19.3 m. Adding to its flexibility are two new transport options, including 25 km/h and 90 km/h. Its permanent ballasts and mobile chassis help easily transport the crane as a single package. Also, the crane’s easy-to-use remote control enables one-person manoeuvrability and lifting options. The Igo MA 21 is ideal for renovation, carpentry and masonry work, among a wide array of applications.
