Manitowoc Cranes will unveil six new cranes to the lifting market at ConExpo 2020 and showcase four other crane models that were introduced in 2018 and 2019. The large number of new cranes launching at the tradeshow reflects Manitowoc’s improved product development cycle. Less than a year ago that Manitowoc launched six new cranes at bauma 2019, and the company is matching this number at ConExpo.
The six new models will come from the Manitowoc, Potain, Grove, and National Crane ranges, covering a wide spectrum of lifting industry needs.
Barry Pennypacker, president and CEO of The Manitowoc Company, Inc., said the company is delivering on its promise to design and manufacture new products more rapidly so that Manitowoc customers can utilize the increased capabilities and efficiencies they bring and earn more return on their capital investments.
“At CONEXPO 2020, we plan to show how our innovation and velocity efforts under The Manitowoc Way are producing cranes that offer class-leading design and performance,” he said. “Many of our customers provide direct input into the design and functionality of our new cranes, and we know that they will be thrilled to see their contributions come to life.”
Previously announced cranes at the company’s booth will include: the Grove GRT9165 rough-terrain, GMK5250XL-1 all-terrain, TMS500-2 truck-mounted, and GHC140 telescoping crawler cranes; the Potain Hup M 28-22 (with a U.S.-specific transport axle) self-erecting crane; and the National Crane NBT60L boom truck.
Manitowoc will occupy Booth F6144 in the new Festival Lot near the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.
