Manitowoc to launch Potain Hup M 28-22 with 80 km/h transport axle at Dach + Holz International 2020
* Manitowoc Cranes will use Dach + Holz International to introduce the Potain Hup M 28-22 self-erecting model, designed according to the needs of the German market.
* The 80 km/h transport axle makes the Hup M 28-22 suitable for road transport in line with the needs of German customers.
Manitowoc will present this compact and high-performance model along with three of its distribution partners at booth 7/11 in the Free Area (Freigelände).
At the forthcoming Dach + Holz International exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on January 28-31 Manitowoc Cranes will officially introduce the new Potain Hup M 28-22 mobile self-erecting crane to the German market.
Manitowoc Cranes will present this model together with three of its German distributors – Noe from Möglingen, Bregler + Klöckler from Bad Waldsee and Schwab from Dettenheim.
The Potain Hup M 28-22 concept was previewed at Bauma, in April 2019. The new format presented at Dach + Holz International, however, features an 80 km/h axle making it suitable for road transport.
M for mobile
The 80 km/h version has been developed for German customers and is the most advanced version of this self-erecting crane to go on the road and be transported as a standard truck.
The integrated transport axle and the permanent ballasts make the crane simple and easy to transport. The Potain Hup M 28-22 is the only self-erecting crane with a 28m jib in such a compact transport format, 11.6 m long and 3.6m high. This means it can be transported as a standard truck and go under bridges.
The Hup M 28-22 is easy to erect and dismantle thanks to the exclusive Potain Smart Set-up, the Hup cranes’ ergonomic remote control software.
The Potain Hup M 28-22 is a high-performance model, allowing a maximum load of 2.2t and up to 850 kg at 28 m jib. The latest technology mechanisms, such as DVF Optima for trolleying, LVF Optima for lifting and HPS for slewing, ensure the ultimate in comfort and precision.
With a 28 m jib and 19-31 m height under hook thanks to the raised jib positions, the Potain Hup M 28-22 is suitable for a wide range of lifting needs, especially for small housing construction applications. Given that Dach + Holz International is dedicated to the roof and timber construction industry, the Hup M model is ideally suited to the exhibition’s audience.
