Shawmut Equipment recently took a Potain Igo MA13 self- erecting crane on a tour of the Eastern United States, demonstrating the machine's capabilities to prospective customers. Shawmut's tour started at its headquarters facility in Manchester, CT, then moved on to its Norfolk facility and then on to Maine.

“The Igo MA13 was well received by all who attended the demonstrations,” said Kevin O'Connell, a Shawmut sales representative. “A variety of existing crane rental customers came to see the Igo MA13, as did many new faces, particularly forklift truck and aerial work platform users. Many attendees saw the Igo MA13 as an excellent alternative to other lifting options.”

The Igo MA 13's ease of transportation, speed of set up, and dual voltage capabilities impressed those who saw the demo, O'Connell said. Other factors of importance were the crane's overall weight capacity of 2 tons, its ability to fold down to only 34.4 feet, a 72.2 foot radius and an under hook height of 52.5 feet, which gives the Igo MA13 a radius of 22 feet when equipped with its maximum load of 2 tons.
