Product Snapshot: Crane Accessory for Wind Turbines and Compact Cable Cutter

Text size: A A
The 440-ton Manitowoc 16000 Crawler Crane with Wind Attachment now features an optional Boom Raise System. The system allows for lifts up to heights of 351 ft, plus 25 ft if using the extended, upper-boom point. At full height, the crane has a capacity of 96.8 tons at an operating radius of 65 ft, which allows the crane to perform wind-turbine installations on towers over 330 ft. The Boom Raise System's hydraulic cylinder helps elevate the boom hoist up to an angle of 38, at which point the boom hoist takes over. Manitowoc; 920-684-6621; www.manitowoc.com
