Strong and versatile crane

14 Mar 2020

Manitowoc has launched the Potain MCT 325 to expand its MCT range of topless cranes. The MCT 325 is designed to deliver easy transport and assembly, plus high efficiency and reliability on construction projects. Available in two versions, the MCT 325 offers jib length configurations from 40m up to 75m, in increments of 5m. The new model stays true to the design characteristics of Potain topless cranes, with easy transport and erection combined with on-site performance. On a well-prepared site, the MCT 325 can be setup within 1.5 days, with the complete jib and counter-jib erected in four lifts. The MCT 325 is designed to work with the 2m x 2m L68 and L69 mast systems and can be utilized with fixing angles in a regular high-rise construction; in an internal climbing configuration; or mounted on a chassis, giving users maximum versatility. There is also a new square design of the crane’s counterjib. To ensure easier assembly on site, the complete jib and counter-jib can be erected in two lifts each, meaning a greater choice of assist cranes can be used for the task. There are dedicated sling points on the counter jib and transport brackets on the jib to facilitate easier loading into the crane’s compact transport configuration. Customers have a variety of options for the hoisting, slewing, and trolley mechanisms. There are a variety of hoist options, all with frequency-controlled technology and the winches are available with a safety brake option.
