45 Ton Crawler Latest Mantis Line
25 March 2008
New in Mantis Cranes’ 10-model line of telescopic boom crawler cranes is the 45 ton capacity 9010 tele-boom crawler. The machine can act as both a lift crane and, when equipped by the manufacturer, can work with a variety of ground-engaging tools. It has a 105 foot four-section full power telescopic boom of heavy folded plate construction. For extra reach, it can be equipped with a 30 foot lattice swingaway extension and 20 foot offsetable fiy jib to increase maximum tip height to 159 feet. The 19 foot long tracks hydraulically extend to a width of 18 feet 4 inches with maximum 36 inch wide triple grouser shoes. As with the company's other cranes, the 9010 can operate either with tracks fully extended (for optimum capacities) or fully retracted when space constraints dictate.
The crane is powered by a 215 horsepower Cummins turbocharged, after-cooled diesel engine. It has a high pressure open-loop load-sensing hydraulic system, with two main variable volume axial piston pumps, allowing simultaneous use of all functions. Power to the tracks is provided by two-speed piston motors driving through planetary gearboxes to provide travel speeds of 2 or 3 mph and gradeability of 54%.
Cab control features include a pilot-operated joystick designed for fast high speed function capabilities. The 17,500 pound main hoist offers maximum hoisting speeds as fast as 489 feet/min and swing speed up to 3 rpm. The cab has Mantis VIEW (a combined ECM/LMI system), as well as an operator's display incorporating cameras providing rear and winch views.
