Equipment Type

 Tower Cranes


The CTL 1600 luffing jib tower crane is the largest in the line, with 2.5 times the load moment and a 10-meter longer jib than the next model down.

Largest in the tower crane line, Potain MD 560 B has a 550 tonne-meter rating and is available in 25- or 40-ton versions.

With the new 285 EC-B 12 Litronic, Liebherr has introduced its range of Flat-Top cranes to U.S. customers.

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.
