Manitex Unveils 50-Ton Capacity
Manitex International, Bridgeview, Ill., has announced that it is launching a new 50-ton capacity, rubber-track-mounted, telescopic-boom crane named the Manitex 50155GT. Manitex believes the 50155GT is the highest-capacity crane ever mounted on a rubber-tracked carrier.
The first unit is now in production and will be delivered in September to a customer in the mining industry. Manitex expects that the 50155GT's high capacity, ability to lift a two-person work platform to a height of 200 feet, and rubber-tracked maneuverability will also prove ideal for constructing and maintaining electrical transmission lines.
