MCG to Display Lifting Power at ICUEE 2005

A broad range of lifting technology, including boom truck, industrial, and self-erecting crane technology, will be displayed by Manitowoc Crane Group at the ICUEE show in Louisville, Kentucky next September.

Two newcomers to the National Crane boom truck line will be on display for the first time. Perhaps the most significant of these is the 13110A, a crane that has a capacity of 27 t (30 ton) and a maximum tip height of 49 m (162 ft). The 1300A is an all-new design equipped with dual, H-style outriggers with mid-span capability. The enclosed cab has swing controls located in the arm rests - the optional cab can be replaced by open seat controls as a versatile alternative.

The other crane making its debut is the National 690E-U, ENVI, a clean machine that runs on biodegradable diesel and utilizes vegetable oil throughout its hydraulic system. The new unit will be a particularly useful asset to those who work in environmentally sensitive locations. It has an 18 t (20 ton) maximum capacity, a 28 m (90 ft) four-section boom, and a 14 m (45 ft) two-section jib. The maximum tip height with jib is 44 m (144 ft). Another feature of this machine is the H-style 'out-and-down' outriggers with full and mid-span settings.

Additional cranes on display at ICUEE from National Crane are the Model 990A-AG, the 14127H, and a second Model 671E-U - displaying the boom length versatility of the new 600E-U.

The Model 990A-AG on display will be fitted with an auger unit to highlight its digging capabilities. It has a four-section boom, a 24 t (26 ton) maximum capacity, 28 m (90 ft) maximum boom extension, and a 44 m (143 ft) maximum tip height.

The largest boom truck on the stand will be the 14127H. It has a five-section boom, a 30 t (33 ton) maximum capacity, 38,7 m (127 ft) maximum boom extension, and a 51 m (167 ft) maximum tip height with jib. The 671E-U, meanwhile, has a maximum capacity of 18.4 t (20 ton), a 21,6 m (71 ft) maximum boom extension, and a maximum tip height of 13,7 m (45 ft).

Two Grove Yard Boss models - a 7,7 t (8,5 ton) 4409 XL and a 13 t (15 ton) 5515 - will also be on display at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center site. These cranes are perfect for industrial and utility applications, as their carry-deck capability and four-wheel steer maneuverability make them ideal for tight-quarter applications.

Elsewhere at Booth # J302 will be a Potain Igo MA13. This self-erecting crane made its US debut earlier this year and has since found great success on job sites where space is at a premium. Personnel from Manitowoc Crane Group will put the 1,8 t (2 ton) capacity crane through its paces, with hourly demos showing how the unit, which has a 22 m (72 ft) radius and 16 m (52,5 ft) under-hook height, can be remotely controlled via a wireless handheld control box.
