Manitowoc has displayed a Potain Igo 32 and Igo M 14 at Intermasz 2018, a construction trade show that took place in Poznań, Poland. The Igo 32 was exhibited outdoors in the Manitowoc area, and the smaller and world-renowned Igo M 14 was shown indoors. The Igo 32 is one of Potain’s largest self-erecting cranes. It has a maximum hook height of 22 m and can lift 1.1 t at its 30 m jib end.
The Igo M 14 has class-leading lifting height and flexible configuration options; operators can adjust the crane’s configuration at their yard before dispatching it to a job site, making set up time even shorter. In addition, Manitowoc promoted its EnCORE refurbishment program during the show.
EnCORE is Manitowoc’s branded rebuild, repair, re-manufacture and exchange program. At Intermasz 2018, attendees were able to inspect a completely refurbished trolley winch up close. “Poland has a strong used crane market and manufacturer guaranties are key to providing customer peace of mind,” says Krzysztof Świtała, sales director for Manitowoc in Poland. “EnCORE customers experience a world-class organization dedicated to helping customers maximize investments, the minimization of lifetime operating costs, reduced downtime, and the knowledge that each crane has been restored to original engineering specifications.”
