Manitowoc launches Potain Hup M 28-22 at Batimat 2019

Manitowoc has officially launched its new Potain Hup M 28-22 at Batimat 2019. The crane was first previewed at bauma 2019 and is now receiving orders, with first deliveries expected for early 2020.

The Hup M 28-22 is the third model from the Hup self-erecting crane range but the first to prioritise mobility — denoted by the M in its name. The new design of the Hup M 28-22 provides best-in-class compactness. The model is only 11.6 m (38 ft) long when folded, enabling work in narrow, restricted job sites, as well as making it easy to transport from site to site.

The Hup M 28-22 also features the most advanced transport equipment with double steering axles. It has a 28 m (92 ft) jib and features two load charts, each with 16 configurations, which is unique to this category of self-erecting cranes, enabling it to be easily adapted for a range of job site applications. The crane has a maximum capacity of 2.2 t (2.4 USt) and can lift 850 kg (1,874 lbs) at its 28 m (92 ft) jib end.

Versatility is delivered with the crane’s raised jib that offers four positions: horizontal, 10°, 20°and even 30°. These functions give the crane a height under hook range between 20 m (65 ft) and 31 m (101 ft). Folding or extending the jib is a swift and straightforward operation, with the Hup M 28-22 offering convenient configurations for both short and long jib lengths.

Operator productivity on the Hup M 28-22 is maximised through Manitowoc’s remote-control unit. The remote system features a large, coloured screen with easy-to-use navigation and optimised ergonomics for operator comfort. Its Smart set-up software delivers on-screen information about automatic folding and unfolding of the crane from the crane’s remote.
