Manitowoc appoints Leavitt Cranes as newest Potain tower crane dealer in Washington and Oregon
Manitowoc Cranes has appointed a new Potain self-erecting crane dealer, Leavitt Cranes. The company will sell and support the cranes in Washington and Oregon, as well as providing consultation and training. The Washington-based company, a division of Pacific Northwest Company, has an extensive history of equipment sales and rentals in the region, which will enable it to leverage an already diverse customer base and years of sales, service and training experience for Potain customers.
Erick Zampini, general manager at Leavitt Cranes, said that the company is focused on continually improving all aspects of its business, which includes adding quality brands that excel in offering solutions to its customers.
"We are very excited to become an official Potain self-erecting crane dealer and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship," Zampini said. "Self-erecting cranes offer a lot of benefits that can boost our customers' efficiency and productivity. They are easy to transport, erect and operate, and they can cover a lot of a jobsite from their compact footprints. We are extremely optimistic about their impact in this region."
Self-erecting cranes are gaining popularity in North America, as contractors are increasingly realizing their benefits, particularly for applications such as residential homebuilding, smaller construction projects, utility work and more. Potain's Hup and Igo ranges are rapidly changing the lifting aspect of projects not only in North America, but also across the globe.
"Leavitt Cranes is a highly regarded company that brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the industry," said Mike Heacock, vice president, sales-tower cranes at Manitowoc. "Potain customers expect the highest levels of service and support on the market, and we are confident that Leavitt Cranes has the kind of seasoned expertise that can make a real difference for lifting companies."
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
