MANITOWOC INNOVATION AT ITS BEST!
09-Apr-2014

Manitowoc’s new models MLC300 and MLC650 utilize Variable Position Counterweight (VPC) proprietary technology to “actively” engage all counterweight and eliminate the need for “passive” carbody weights. The VPC allows the crane’s counterweight to be positioned automatically while offering an unmatched level of versatility and capability. The design results in reduced transport configurations and better center of gravity for improved ground bearing pressures. In addition to the VPC, the optional VPC-MAX attachments increase the capacity and boom and jib combination lengths while utilizing all of the standard VPC components. Both models also include the new Crane Control System that offers operator friendly controls as well as advanced troubleshooting and serviceability features.
