Manitowoc Cranes has officially launched the Hup 40-30 which was first shown as a prototype at Bauma 2016. The crane was unveiled during an event at Manitowoc’s factory in Niella Tanaro, Italy, with more than 320 guests. Deliveries of Hup 40-30 will start in early 2017.

Potain has launched the second model from the new Potain Hup range and the pioneering self-erecting tower crane boasts a range of innovative design and technology features.

The Hup 40-30 come with the 40m jib (131ft) and boasts 16 different configurations, unique to this category of the self-erecting crane. This adaption allows the crane to have a wide range of site applications. The crane has a maximum capacity of 4 tonnes and can lift 1 tonne at its jib end of 40m (131 ft).

It also features a telescopic mast for a range of working heights. This design boosts the height under hook attainable by the crane from 25.6m (84ft) in its “low position” to 30m (98ft) when fully extended.

This improves the transportation of the crane as no extra mast is required for installation separately. with a transport configuration only 14 m (46 ft) long when folded, the Hup 40-30 is easy to move from job site to job site.

In addition, the crane’s luffing jib offers three different positioning: horizontal, 10° and 20°. These options provide the crane with a height under hook range of 20 m (65 ft) to 40 m (131 ft). Shortening or extending the jib is a swift and straightforward operation as it offers convenient configurations for both short and long jib lengths.

The Hup 40-30 has better agility which has a high-performance slewing radius, allowing the crane to be position closer to the building.

It also comes with Manitowoc’s new Smart Set-Up software, Potain’s High-Performance Lifting (HPL) and High-Performance Slewing (HPS) and features a new Power Control function.

The new Potain Hup range will replace existing Igo models of self-erecting cranes.
