The new Manitex 4596T high capacity truck crane enjoyed a strong debut at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the company reported. With a base rating of 45 tons at an 8 foot radius, the higher rating and capacities to 40 foot radius exceed those of previous Manitex truck cranes and those of competitors, the company claims.
The lower frame is designed for 5th wheel attachment and trailer applications. Dual-stage rear outrigger jacks provide significant penetration and improve ground clearance.
The tractor mount configuration was designed for remote oil industry applications, but the company says a taxi crane version, similar to other Manitex S-series crane models, will be introduced later in the year.
