Manitowoc is now taking orders for a new self-erecting crane, with first deliveries expected to be made by early 2020.
First unveiled at bauma 2019, the Potain Hup M 28-22 is the third generation in the Hup self-erecting crane range and has been designed with mobility in mind.
Its new design is 11.6 metres long when folded to enable work in narrow, restrictive job sites and to improve how easy it is to transport from site to site.
The crane has a 28-metre jib and features two load charts, each with 16 configurations to help it adapt to a range of applications. It has a maximum capacity of 2.2 tonnes and can lift 850 kilograms at its 28-metre job end.

The Hup M 28-22’s jib can be raised to four positions: horizontal, 10°, 20° and 30°. This helps provide versatility and gives the crane a height under hook range between 20 metres and 31 metres. The design of the crane aims to make folding or extending the jib a simple and straightforward operation, with multiple configurations for short and long jib lengths.
A remote-control unit can also be included with the crane, along with Manitowoc’s Smart Set-up software that delivers information about automatic folding and unfolding of the crane from the remote.
Drive control functionalities are also available and include three selectable profiles for operators that vary the working speed of the crane to suit the applications.
New features also include the ability for users to steer the wheels and manage the crane’s hydraulic elevation.
