High hopes


Manitowoc is launching a new large crawler crane at Intermat aimed at combining high capacity with the ability to work in more congested sites. The 18000 can lift up to 600 tonnes and has a reach up to 185 m, depending on rigging. The company has managed to achieve this capacity within a shipping weight of 40 tonnes.
