Towering over the Manitowoc stand at bauma 2019 was the new Potain MDT 809, the largest topless crane ever built by the manufacturer. While delivering unprecedented lift capacity and reach, the new crane also boasts an advanced design that provides reduced operating costs and easier assembly for owners.

Manitowoc has greatly expanded its service and support offerings and featured them at bauma 2019. The company called attention to a diverse portfolio of tools and services that bolster its crane and technologies lineup.
In 2018, Manitowoc's factory in Niella Tanaro, Italy boosted production of Grove rough-terrain cranes to better serve customers in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, and this enhanced capability is highlighted at bauma 2019. The company is showing two rough-terrain cranes at the exhibition, a 100 t capacity GRT8100 and a 51 t capacity GRT655L. The GRT8100 on show was built at the Italian plant while Manitowoc plans to start building the GRT655L there in future.
At bauma 2019 Manitowoc launched an impressive new unit in the five-axle category and two new three-axle models. Andreas Cremer, global product director for all-terrain cranes at Manitowoc, said the launch of the new models underlines the company's increased speed of product development under The Manitowoc Way and its ongoing commitment to building cranes that offer outstanding return on investment.
Manitowoc has officially launched for North America its biggest Grove Hydraulic Crawler (GHC) crane, the new GHC140. It's the latest in a long line of telescoping crawler cranes with enhanced features and what the company states are best-in-class load charts.
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.
Manitowoc Cranes will launch an upgrade of the three-axle Grove GMK3060 all-terrain crane at bauma 2019 in Munich. The new GMK3060L is based on its predecessor's design but has a longer boom (157.5 ft/48 m instead of 141 ft/43 m) and offers the strongest taxi load charts in its class.
Manitowoc will debut six new models from its Grove and Potain lines at bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany. It will also present a technology pavilion that highlights a significant number of customer-focused innovations. While six cranes will be unveiled at the show, several additional models on display will give visitors the chance to see more than 10 new cranes.
National Crane has announced a new Rapid Attach Platform for its NBT boom truck series previously unveiled at Crane Days 2018. The completely redesigned platform will replace previous iterations and comes in two styles: yoke style (Y-RAP2) and rotating style (R-RAP2). The yoke style is available now and the rotating style will be available this year.
Manitowoc has officially launched an internal mast operator lift for Potain top slewing cranes. The Potain Cab-IN allows for fast, easy and safe travel to and from the crane cab, while retaining regular mast ladder access. It fits inside all K-mast systems of 1.6 m, 2 m and 2.45 m sections. The system is also compatible with all Potain bases/chassis, meaning it can be fitted into both existing and new crane models.
