Raimondi Cranes SpA has announced its newest flat-top tower crane, MRT234. Presented to Raimondi’s exclusive agent network ahead of wider release, the MRT234 has already witnessed strong pre-sales due to its enhanced solution-based design. The MRT234 flat-top tower crane officially began shipping in September to fulfill agent pre-sell orders, and has now launched for wider purchasing.
“We are thrilled to launch the MRT234 after months of preparation. Raimondi’s R&D team worked with various suppliers for four months to build the prototype, erected in beta in August 2017 at our headquarters in Italy. The final stage of testing took three months including pre-assembly of the crane, evaluating many different types of configurations and all of the model’s structural tests,” said Eng. Domenico Ciano, Technical Director, Raimondi Cranes.
“This testing phase, part of Raimondi’s internal technical quality control procedures, allowed for various performance measurement assessments, and allowed the engineering segment to observe these metrics at work thereby ensuring the best possible results for end-users,” added Ciano.
The Raimondi MRT234 is the newest flattop tower crane in the range with a maximum length jib of 70 m and a maximum capacity of 12,000 kg, with four falls configuration. At the maximum radius, it can lift 2,250 kg in Ultralift mode. Eight different jib length configurations, from 70 m to 28 m, satisfy all needs in terms of specific jobsite configurations. The MRT234 may be equipped with two different hoisting winches: standard installed power of 45 kW or the more powerful 55 kW.
