Manitex’s newly acquired Badger Equipment subsidiary has begun producing a new product line, starting with the CD4430, a 30-ton cab-down-style rough-terrain crane. A synchronized, two-section boom can reach 53 feet, and a three-section boom is optional. Badger offers a choice of Cummins QSB 4.5 four-cylinder turbo diesel or six-cylinder QSB 6.7, both rated at 160 horsepower. Steering choices for the all-wheel-drive CD4430 include two-wheel front, two-wheel rear, four-wheel coordinated and four-wheel crab steering. The first of the new Badger cranes were scheduled for delivery in September. Suggested retail price for the CD4430 is $340,000.
The 5096S boom truck from Manitex is rated at 50-ton capacity at a 6-foot radius, which is said to be a 25 percent improvement over currently produced boom trucks. Still, the 5096S meets federal bridge law weight requirements, meaning no overweight permits are required. Standard features include solid radio outrigger controls, four-section 96-foot boom, and free swing with pilot-operated controls.
The 50-ton Manitex 5096S boom truck is what Veri-Tek, owner of the Manitex brand, calls “the first 50 ton boom truck available on a commercially available chassis.”
