Manta’s new Potains at work

29 April 2020

Manta Equipment has received two brand new Potain MCT 565 M25 topless cranes in Singapore; both have been put to work.

Hock Guan Cheong Builder purchased the first unit from the company and is using it for residential construction projects, while BHCC Construction is renting the second one for use on housing projects.

The MCT 565 M25 offers a 25t maximum load and jib length configurations from 30m to 80m in 5m increments. At its 80m jib end, it can handle 4t. “Despite its increased size, the new model stays true to the design characteristics of Potain topless cranes, with easy transport and erection combining with excellent on-site performance,” Manitowoc said. 

Manta Equipment is one of Asia’s leading tower crane rental companies. It serves primarily the construction and infrastructure sectors in Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau. In Singapore the company has been leasing Potain cranes to customers for over 25 years. 

“Since the MCT 565 launched at bauma China 2018, popularity is continuing to grow,” said Darren Tan, regional sales manager, tower cranes, Manitowoc Cranes – Greater Asia Pacific. “With many contractors preferring topless cranes and job sites using heavier construction materials, we expect to see more demand for the MCT 565, which is now the largest topless crane from Potain’s Asia Range.”
