THE TOPLESS CRANE WITH THE LOWEST OPERATING COSTS OF A HIGH-CAPACITY TOWER CRANE
The MDT 489 has the most highly optimized assembly and disassembly process for a crane in this category which helps to save costs while enjoying the benefits of a high-capacity crane. The MDT 489 is exceptionally compact, quick, and easy to transport. It is equipped with the new high performance hoisting winch, the 110HPL, and CCS (Crane Control System) which allow a set-up of the crane in only 15min.
