New Manitex TC450U Utility Crane Lifts 45 Tons or Reaches Up 205’

Aug. 19, 2020 – Manitex International Inc. has begun production of the TC450U utility crane.

The TC450U offers 45-ton maximum capacity, a five-section 142’ boom, and a maximum working height of 205’ with jib. It is mounted on a commercial carrier.

A variant of the popular TC450 Series, the TC450U is tailored for the utility market and available with many options, including dual rating, aerial work platform with intensifier, pole guide, auxiliary power unit, and other customizable options.

This new machine will further the growth of the already successful TC line of Manitex truck-mounted cranes. These new options and enhancements demonstrate Manitex’s ongoing commitment to develop new equipment in response to the ever-growing demand for specialized equipment.

“Manitex collaborated with a northwestern power provider to develop an application-specific machine capable of various tasks with the ability to work in remote areas and harsh conditions. The resulting product is impressive and Manitex looks forward to introducing this machine to power providers and utility contractors across North America through Manitex’s dealer network,” said Randy Robertson, director, sales and marketing at Manitex.
