The MR 229, a new addition to Potain’s luffing jib crane range, is a 14t maximum capacity crane that can lift 2.7t to 55m. This crane is the first of a new generation of Potain luffing jib cranes to integrate Manitowoc’s CCS (Crane Control System) and the new Potain CONNECT telematics offering. This user-friendly and intuitive solution gives owners greater control and visibility of their cranes, providing seamless integration of remote diagnostics, advanced analytics and fleet management to increase machine uptime and utilization. Another major advantage of this machine is the easy installation of the crane. The out-of-service radius is between 10 and 12 m, approximately 5 to 10 m less than equivalent cranes in this category.

In addition to all the ergonomic features common to all Potain cranes in the MDT City range, this crane is offered with a new automatic trolley. Reeving is changed by the crane operator directly from the cabin (no need for a technician on the ground). This makes this crane even easier to use. The crane is, like the MR 229, also equipped with Potain CONNECT, Potain’s new telematics platform.
