Among the winners of the event’s innovation awards was pick-and-carry specialist JMG, for their MC 50000 RE knuckleboom crane. This crane, first shown last year cleverly mounts on a knuckleboom with the slewing at the base of the carrier, passing through the frame to offer reach and power in a compact unit. JMG founder Maurizio Manzini said the company will be showing a selection of its highly specialised cranes in March

Another key innovation will come from CIFA Zoomlion, who will be showing their two new Italian-built all terrain cranes, the 70t ATC 960 and 100t ATC 1000, along with two rough terrain, the ZRT 600 and ZRT 850, and a tower crane, the T7020 flat-top.

Manitowoc will focus on its Italian-built rough terrains, the GRT 655 L and RT 550. It will show two self-erector, the Hup 32-27, built in Italy, and Igo 21, as well as its most popular flat top model.

Rotating telehandlers, suitable for lifting jobs, will also be on show. Magni will show its latest 6t model, the RTH 6.51, which, through careful material selection and technology upgrades, now reaches 51m, from a previous length of 45m. Merlo will show the new range of models it launched last year, with a 35m model now on sale, and on show in Verona.
