The first Potain MCT 325 topless cranes in Australia have been sold and delivered to Active Crane Hire, according to Manitowoc.
The cranes will mainly be used for residential commercial projects within Australia and were purchased during the product launch in August 2019.
“We chose the MCT 325 for its versatility and to support the increasing preference for precast concrete in construction,” said Active Crane Hire Managing director Hermann Buchberger.
“We are looking forward to the MCT 325 bringing speed and simplicity to projects with its design that allows multiple units to overlap on site.”
Active Crane Hire has offices in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria and offers maintenance services for tower cranes, self-erecting cranes, top-slewing cranes and electric luffing cranes.
