Potain launches MRH 175 tower crane

Potain has announced the MRH 175 tower crane, a new hydraulic luffing jib crane that will make its debut at Conexpo 2020. It is one of the two Potain cranes that will be on display at the Manitowoc booth during the show, where the company plans to showcase the latest in lifting technology for two of the busiest sectors in the built environment: high-rise construction and homebuilding. The other crane on show will be the Hup M 28-22 that was introduced in 2019 and is making its North American debut, complete with a new transport axle for the regional market.

Thibaut Le Besnerais, Vice President of global products for tower cranes at Manitowoc said both models feature designs that give users capabilities not available with other cranes.

“In recent years under The Manitowoc Way operating system, our product development has accelerated and what’s exciting about this is not only the number of new cranes we’re introducing, but the innovation they bring to market,” he said. “The MRH 175 has our latest hydraulic luffing technology: a design we’ve been championing for the past two years. Meanwhile, the Hup M 28-22 harnesses all the versatility and speed of our Hup cranes but with added mobility. So, at Conexpo customers can get a firsthand look at the latest technology for the high-rise and home building sectors.”

The MRH 175 is the latest release in Potain’s line of hydraulic luffing jib cranes, a product line the company has continuously developed since unveiling the MRH 125 a year ago. Combining the advantages of Potain’s MR luffing jib cranes and MDT topless cranes, contractors find them particularly straightforward to assemble and disassemble on congested sites, making them ideal for urban projects, high-rise construction or job sites where space is limited.
