Manitowoc Exhibited Latest Shuttlelift Crane at The ARA Show
Manitowoc showcased the Shuttlelift SCD15 carrydeck crane at The ARA Show, which took place October 17-20, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Michael Heinrich, Manitowoc’s vice president of sales for boom trucks and industrial cranes, said this model is in high demand by rental house customers.
“The SCD15 has become one of the most popular cranes in the industrial crane rental market,” he said. “We’ve made a number of enhancements to the crane that make it easier to use and provide more comfort for operators. Also, the redesigned platform makes the machine lighter, which enables for greater maneuverability and easier transport.”
The SCD15 has a storage tray and main storage box in the front center of the carrier that are suitable for storing the downhaul ball, hook block or rigging equipment. An additional storage box is located on the right-hand side of the machine for stowing smaller tools or equipment for the operator.
The SCD15 has a standard, 3-section 12.5 m boom, but customers also have the option of a 4-section, full-power 15.2 m boom. A 4.5 m fixed swingaway extension is also available for a maximum tip height of 21.2 m. The jib extension can be offset at 0°, -15° and -30° with help from the pivoting boom nose.
The SCD15 features an exclusive pivoting boom nose, which enables operators to gain more clearance and better access in confined areas, such as those frequently found in industrial settings. The boom nose can be moved into 3 positions: 0°, 40° and 80°. At 80°, the boom nose is pivoted fully forward, decreasing head height by more than 30 m for optimal accessibility.
This 13.6-t industrial crane is ideal for automotive and general manufacturing plants, refinery work, laydown yards, steel mills, or any other application where mass production and continuous maintenance are key. It is available with 2 engine options: a Tier 4 final Cummins QSF 3.8 l engine that does not require DEF or a 4.3 l dual-fuel version running on either propane or gasoline.
Three steering modes, combined with a tight turning radius, offer excellent versatility and maneuverability on the jobsite.
