Lattice-boom Cranes.  Under the Manitowoc brand name we design, manufacture and distribute lattice-boom crawler cranes.  Lattice-boom cranes consist of a lattice-boom, which is a fabricated, high-strength steel structure that has four chords and tubular lacings, mounted on a base which is either crawler or truck mounted. Lattice-boom cranes weigh less and provide higher lifting capacities than a telescopic boom of similar length.  The lattice-boom cranes are the only category of crane that can pick and move simultaneously.  The lattice-boom sections, together with the crane base, are transported to and erected at a project site.

 

We currently offer models of lattice-boom cranes with lifting capacities up to 2,500 U.S. tons, which are used to lift material and equipment in a wide variety of applications and end markets, including heavy construction, bridge and highway, duty cycle and infrastructure and energy related projects. These cranes are also used by the crane rental industry, which serves all of the above end markets.

 

Lattice-boom crawler cranes may be classified according to their lift capacity—low capacity and high capacity. Low capacity crawler cranes with 150-U.S. ton capacity or less are often utilized for general construction and duty cycle applications.  High capacity crawler

cranes with greater than 150-U.S. ton capacity are utilized to lift materials in a wide variety of applications and are often utilized in heavy construction, energy-related, stadium construction, petrochemical work, and dockside applications. We offer four low-capacity models and eight high-capacity models.

 

We also offer our lattice-boom crawler crane customers various attachments that provide our cranes with greater capacity in terms of height, movement and lifting. Our principal attachments are: MAX-ER™ attachment, luffing jibs, and RINGERTM attachments. The MAX-ER is a trailing, counterweight, heavy-lift attachment that dramatically improves the reach, capacity and lift dynamics of the basic crane to which it is mounted. It can be transferred between cranes of the same model for maximum economy and occupies less space than competitive heavy-lift systems. A luffing jib is a fabricated structure similar to, but smaller than, a lattice-boom. Mounted at the tip of a lattice-boom, a luffing jib easily adjusts its angle of operation permitting one crane with a luffing jib to make lifts at additional locations on the project site. It can be transferred between cranes of the same model to maximize utilization. A RINGER attachment is a high-capacity lift attachment that distributes load reactions over a large area to minimize ground-bearing pressure. It can also be more economical than transporting and setting up a larger crane.

Lattice-boom crawler cranes may be classified according to their lift capacity—low capacity and high capacity. Low capacity crawler cranes with 150-ton capacity or less are often utilized for general construction and duty cycle applications. We offer four models in this crane category: the Model 111, an 80-ton capacity, self erecting crawler crane; the Model 222, a 100-ton capacity, self erecting crawler crane; the Model 1015, a 120-ton capacity, self erecting foundation crane; and the Model 555, a 150-ton capacity, lift crane.

 

High capacity crawler cranes with greater than 150-ton capacity are utilized to lift materials in a wide variety of applications and are often utilized in heavy construction, energy-related, stadium construction, petrochemical work, and dockside applications. We offer six high-capacity models: the Model 777, a 200-ton capacity, self erecting crawler crane; the Model 888, a 230-ton capacity, self erecting crawler crane; the Model 999, a 275-ton capacity, self erecting crawler crane; the Model 2250, a 300-ton capacity, self erecting crawler crane; the Model 18000, a 660-ton capacity liftcrane; and the Model 21000, a 1,000-ton capacity liftcrane.

 

We also manufacture two lattice-boom, self erecting truck cranes: the M-2250T, a 300-ton capacity crane and the Model 777T, a 220-ton capacity crane. These cranes serve the same markets as our high capacity crawler cranes.  They differ from their crawler counterparts only in that they are mounted on a truck rather than a crawler and can travel at highway speeds.
