Manitex International has launched of an all new TC850 Series truck mounted crane in conjunction with opening day of ConExpo in Las Vegas, NV.
The TC85159 will feature an 85-ton base rating at 10-foot radius and a 5-section 159-foot, full power, extended boom with 168-foot tip height and 228-foot tip height when equipped with optional 2-piece, 30 to 60-foot Bi-fold offset lattice jib.
“Manitex is pleased to launch an 85-ton high reach truck mounted crane with an all-new outrigger design, eliminating the need for a front jack,” said Jeff Long, general manager sales, Manitex. “We are confident that the capabilities of the new TC850 will be well received by the crane industry, and we are pleased to announce we have received orders for the TC850 from CraneWorks, headquartered in Houston, TX.”
The TC85159 also offers a 360-degree area of operation without need for a front/fifth outrigger. Non-equal outrigger positioning, along with increased ground penetration offers quick set up. The new formed boom design will also provide excellent relative stiffness in long reach applications making it attractive to steel erectors and other high duty cycle applications, the company said.
