The Manitowoc Company has launched the NBT60L, the latest addition to its National Crane boom truck product line. The 60-ton boom truck features the longest boom length in its tonnage class with 151 feet of main boom and a maximum main boom height of 161 feet. It can be equipped with an optional 36-foot offsettable lattice jib that reaches a 196-foot maximum tip height.
The NBT60L is ideal for work in the oil and gas industry, as well as utility sectors because of its long main boom and stout turntable design, minimizing machine flex and providing operators with increased confidence in making any lift. The 161-foot maximum main boom height is great for holding tools above well heads or lifting and setting long utility poles in place.
The NBT60L comes standard with operator-centric features such as the deluxe operator’s tilt cab with heated seat, an easy-to-use color graphical display and real-time diagnostics for simplified troubleshooting without the need for a laptop. Additional state-of-the-art features include electric over hydraulic controls with speed adjustability, hydraulically removable counterweight, optional multiple camera system for increased job site visibility and a fully integrated wireless wind speed indicator.
“The longer five-section boom, offsettable jib, tilt cab, and diagnostics tools all enable customers to work more efficiently,” Ritter said. “And while they’re operating the crane, it will be far more comfortable, thanks to the new cab features. This is an extremely versatile crane that can be used on a wide variety of applications.”
