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. Design innovations allow easier transportation and crane erection. Platforms on the counterjib are the same as those on the MD 485 B, and the crane has improved tie bars. When working with an 80-meter jib, the 25-ton crane lifts 5.4 tons at the jib end; the 40-ton crane with a 70-meter jib can lift 7.5 tons at the jib end.
