Manitowoc’s tower crane brand Potain has launched a brand-new self-erecting crane: the Evy 30-23 4 t. This new model marks the debut of the Evy range, the latest generation of Potain self-erecting cranes.

The Evy 30-23 4 t is specifically engineered for home construction and residential building construction of up to three stories in height. According to Potain, the crane offers a simple setup procedure and requires less manual operation than similar cranes. It boasts an impressive 4 t maximum capacity and 1 t capacity from the tip of its substantial 30 m jib, enabling precise handling of heavy loads within an extensive radius. Variable jib positions of 10, 20, or 30 degrees deliver an impressive 35 m maximum height under hook with a 30-degree raised jib. The jib can also be hydraulically folded so that it is just 15 m long and can be shortened to 24 m if required. It also includes a three-phase power system and permanent four-fall reeving.

The Evy 30-23 4 t is equipped with the CCS Crane Control System, Smart Set-up, Power Control, and Drive Control, providing operators with complete control and precision on the jobsite. Its ergonomic design improves operator comfort, as it reduces manual operation, and lessens operator fatigue.

Another feature of the Evy 30-23 4 t is the inclusion of the Potain CONNECT telematic modem. This connectivity solution is designed to enable users to monitor and analyse crane utilisation, and allows for remote and local diagnostics thanks to the Access and Assist applications. When it comes to transportation, the Evy 30-23 4 t is compatible with existing axles, enabling easy transportation as a trailer at 25 km/h or as a semi-trailer at 80 km/h.

“At Potain, we are driven to deliver innovative solutions that empower our customers. The Evy 30-23 4 t represents a significant milestone in our commitment to efficiency and ease of use in the construction industry,” says Rémi Deporte, Product Manager for self-erecting cranes at Potain.
