First MDT 809 goes to Scandinavia

17 April 2019

Sweden’s Lambertsson Kran has purchased the new Potain MDT 809, which was on display at Manitowoc’s booth for bauma 2019. The MDT 809 will be available for rental use within the fleets of both Lambertsson and Norwegian crane sales & rental company Kranor AS.

The recently unveiled topless crane reflects a valuable partnership between Potain and Lambertsson. Lambertsson provided design input through Manitowoc’s Voice of the Customer program, one of the key strategies of The Manitowoc Way, which puts Manitowoc’s customers at the center of its business.

This model has a maximum lifting capacity of 40t, maximum radius of 80m and maximum tip capacity of 8.3t.

Aaron Ravenscroft, executive vice president of cranes at Manitowoc, presented Lambertsson with a celebratory plaque to mark the occasion and thanked managing director Jan Heed for his company’s input in the MDT 809’s design.
