The Potain GTMR 386 selferecting crane is celebrating its 1,000th delivery, which went to French contractor Sogea Construction.

“They are perfectly suited to residential construction, such as apartment blocks or hotels. In addition, customers like them for their very powerful load curves,” said David Havard, Potain global product manager for tower cranes, explaining the crane's popularity. “At 50 meters (164 feet), the GTMR 386 can lift 1.5 tons or with a 31 meter (101 feet) jib can lift 4.1 tons. The GTMR 386 can transport on only three trucks and has good versatility in height and jib length.”

The crane has a maximum capacity of 8 tons and a maximum reach of 164 feet (50 meters). Height under hook is 118 feet (36.2 meters).
