Manitowoc has launched the Potain MCT 325 to further expand its MCT range of topless cranes. The MCT 325 is designed to deliver easier transport and assembly, plus high efficiency and reliability on construction projects. The company unveiled the new crane during a special event at Manitowoc’s factory in Zhangjiagang, China on August 29, where the 16 tonne version of the MCT 325 was displayed with its full 75 m jib.
Kwong-Joon Leong, Regional Product Manager for Potain tower cranes, said the new model offers an efficient solution for customers requiring strong and versatile cranes in the 12 t and 16 t class.
“Topless cranes like the MCT 325 are becoming the go-to solution for projects utilising precast concrete, which is an increasingly popular choice for the speed and simplicity it brings to job sites,” Leong said.
Available in two versions, the MCT 325 offers jib length configurations from 40 m up to 75 m, in increments of 5 m. At its 75 m jib end, the MCT 325 can handle 2.5 tonne for the 12 tonne version and 2.3 tonne for the 16 tonne version.
Deliveries of the Potain MCT 325 will begin in September and the crane will be sold across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Russia and the CIS countries.
