U.S.-based Empire Crane has purchased a new Shuttlelift CD5520 industrial crane, following its market debut at ConExpo in Las Vegas last month.
The crane dealer, one of the first to obtain the new Shuttlelift from Manitowoc, expects to sell the crane on to one of its customers in the near future.
Luke Lonergan, vice president of Empire, said: “We always buy the latest and greatest cranes for our customers. With its 20-ton (18-tonne) capacity and best-in-class 54 ft 6 in (16.6 m) boom, we are confident that the CD5520 will sell very quickly.”
The Shuttlelift CD5520 replaces the CD5560B industrial crane, while adding new technology and design features. The Shuttlelift offers two jib options: a 15 ft boom (4.6 m) extension or a telescoping 15 ft to 25 ft (4.6 – 7.6 m) swingaway boom extension.
