Manitowoc to showcase cranes at Excon 2019

Manitowoc will showcase its two best-in class cranes from Potain and Grove at booth #OD69 during Excon 2019, South Asia’s largest construction equipment and technology trade fair, which takes place during December 10-14. Manitowoc will be sharing the booth with TIL, its dealer in India for Grove mobile and Manitowoc crawler cranes. At Excon, Manitowoc will display a Potain MCT 205 topless tower crane fresh off the production lines at its Indian factory in Pune alongside a Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane. Both cranes offer increased lifting capacities, which is vital for Indian job sites, where high-rise construction with faster completion times is growing in popularity.

“The Potain MCT 205 and Grove GMK6300L cranes are designed and constructed to deliver maximum productivity and performance with minimum running cost,” said Prashant Suryawanshi, Managing Director, Manitowoc Cranes India.

Manitowoc is now offering the Potain MCT 205 tower crane at its factory in Pune to satisfy growing demand for this crane locally. Manufacturing in Pune will also offer customers shorter lead time and quicker parts availability. The Potain MCT 205 has a maximum capacity of 10 t while at its 65 m jib end it can handle an impressive 1.75 t. The crane’s modern topless design makes it quick to erect and easy to transport, with the heaviest group of components weighing less than 6 t, while the full 65 m jib can be placed in a single lift or in multiple lifts depending the size of the assist crane and or the space available on the job site.

The MCT 205 is a tried and tested model that has seen success outside India in countries like Vietnam, Indonesia and the Middle East. Previously the crane was manufactured only at the Manitowoc factory in Zhangjiagang, China. The 300 t capacity Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane is one of Manitowoc’s biggest success stories. It features 80 m main boom and independent all-wheel steering, while its cab is considered to be the most comfortable and advanced in the industry.

“We picked these two best-in-class cranes to showcase at Excon because their features are ideal for India’s infrastructure revolution,” Suryawanshi said. “We look forward to meeting with existing and new customers and sharing solutions that will improve their business and ROI.”
