Comansa announced during bauma 2019 the upcoming addition of another model to its wide range of large flat-top tower cranes. The new 21LC1400 will be available worldwide from September 2019 and will come in two versions, with maximum load capacity of 50 or 66 tonnes. The main expected application of the 21LC1400 is to work in PPVC and infrastructure projects, but the new model will also provide good performance at sites where it is necessary to lift very heavy loads.
Like Comansa’s most recent large models, the 21LC1400 will feature a modular design of the counterjib to highly reduce the counter-radius in constrained jobsites. A new single and compact trolley has also been designed for the 21LC1400 instead of Comansa’s double trolley system, standard in other models, as the new crane will work mainly in projects in which the maximum load capacity is needed in almost every lift, like PPVC.
Also announced at bauma 2019 was the upcoming Quick Set, an electronic limitation system that will reduce the set-up time of the cranes from three hours to 45 minutes, and will also reduce the number of staff during such operation. The new Quick Set will be available as an option in all flat-top models of the LC range and will be an important benefit for rental companies who have to dismantle their cranes and move them to another jobsite very often.
