The new Manitowoc MLC650 features a Variable Position Counterweight™ (VPC™) that allows the crane’s counterweight to be positioned automatically while still offering an unmatched level of versatility and capability. In addition to the VPC™ the optional VPC-MAX™ attachments increase the capacity boom and jib combination lengths while utilizing all of the standard VPC™ components. The Crane Control System is also a newly-added feature that aids the operator in a quick and easy set-up.
Crane Control System: The Crane Control System offers a user-friendly interface, two full graphic displays mounted horizontally for better visibility, a jog dial for easier data input and ergonomic joysticks.
Variable Position Counterweight (VPC): The Manitowoc MLC650 features a counterweight system that automatically positions the crane’s counterweight as required to match lifting demands. Crane lifting capability is optimized by automatic positioning of the counterweight, eliminating the need for carbody counterweight. Additionally, counterweight boxes are designed to be common across multiple crane platforms and will be utilized on Manitowoc Model MLC300 as well as future new models.
VPC-MAX: Capacity and boom and jib combination lengths can be increased through addition of the exclusive VPC-MAX attachment. The VPC-MAX attachment utilizes all of the standard VPC components, and only requires the addition of a 118.1 ft fixed mast and the VPC-MAX beam. With the VPC-MAX attachment, the load moment of the MLC650 more than doubles its load. The position of the VPC-MAX counterweight is automatically positioned based on lifted load, boom length, or boom and jib length and load radius.
FACT™ Connectors: Manitowoc’s Fast Aligning Connection Technology (FACT™) automatically aligns crane components for fast, easy assembly
