Manitowoc MLC150-1 lattice-boom crawler crane replaces the MLC100-1 with a capacity of 150 metric tons (165 US).
Maximum boom length is 256 feet, and a fixed jib of 80 feet with a 29.5-ton (US) capacity is available. A 170-foot luffing jib with a capacity of 50.2 tons (US) is also available.
The crane assembles more quickly than previous models, the company says. The boom butt mounted sheave enables self-assembly without the boom top, it features a button style rope termination, and a gantry-raised counterweight reduces components. The boom cap, jib butt, and struts ship as a single package for fewer connections. An increased hook height enables self-assembly with various trailer heights.
