Product Description

The heavy lift luffer built by Favelle Favco has a 330 tonne capacity at 14.5 m radius and can free stand up to 80 m. On a 4.3 metre-square tower the M2480D needs a ground area of 4 metres-square when erected on starter legs, or about the same area as two family cars parked side by side. The crane can also be set on a grillage or mounted on rails.

Comparing M2480D load charts against large mobile cranes reveals many areas where the big Favco out lifts 600-tonne capacity crawler cranes. These large crawlers can occupy 10 times more ground area than the new heavy-duty tower crane.

With a 55 tonne winch and maximum hook speed of 95 m/min, the M2480D is a fast crane. It can operate safely in wind speeds up to 20 m/sec. That is more than twice the allowable wind speed that large mobile cranes can legally work in. On projects where wind velocity affects the amount of useable crane time, large gains in time productivity are possible by using the giant tower crane.
