We have what it takes to get the job done from forklifts to taxi cranes. Specializing in various niche markets is one of our strengths
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 29, 2008
Manitex has introduced a new tip height for its successful 124SX and 40124S models, extending its reach to 190', approximately 13% higher than the previous 166'.
Used primarily in the power grid construction field, the new tip height on the 124SX and 40124S is in response to increasing demands in the market. "Power lines are now carrying more current and therefore need to be lifted off the ground higher. That's where the improved 124SX and 40124S come in," says Scott Rolston, President of Manitex Inc.
These machines have also been successfully used in the building of ethanol plants in the Midwest. "The increased height allows for construction of the aerial grain elevators," explains Randy Robertson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Manitex, Inc., talking about the various applications of the crane.
Manitex is looking to increase its share market in the segments of power grid construction and other similar applications. The company has steadily and aggressively positioned itself as a "one-stop shop" for lifting equipment. "We have what it takes to get the job done from forklifts to taxi cranes. Specializing in various niche markets is one of our strengths" concludes Randy Robertson speaking of the improved working tip heights as a response to a special need in the industry.
