Potain's Igo range of self-erecting tower cranes are electrically powered, bottom-slewing models that can use either jobsite power or power from a portable generator. The cranes are designed to self-erect by employing a system that includes a mast-mounted hydraulic cylinder (activated via an electrically powered hydraulic pump), jib cylinders and a mast and jib pendants. The machines can install their own counterweights (via an integral auxiliary derrick), and the jib can be configured to work at less-than-maximum length. Electric motors for hoist, trolley and swing functions are accessible from ground level. Cranes can arrive at the jobsite via drop-deck trailer or, if regulations allow, can be towed by installing a transport axle.
