Italian crane manufacturer TCM is to introduce its new 55t rough terrain crane at an open house event at its premises in Termoli, Italy.

The RTCW 55, already available in east Europe, includes a five-section boom with four fully hydraulic extensions, including two independently extendable and two linked. It can reach a maximum speed of 40km/h and has four steering modes: front, rear, concentric and crab.

Without jib, the crane reaches a maximum height of 36m, has a 5.5t counterweight and is equipped with a 360° slewing turret. Optionally, it is available with a hydraulic telescopic jib with two extensions and a 175 horsepower engine.

As standard it is equipped with an auxiliary winch, hydraulic jib, disk brakes, retarder brake, a camera for the main and auxiliary winches, and rear and front view cameras.

The open house event takes place 13-14 March.
