Bigge crane technicians have been involved with the MLC650 going back to early 2014. Our employees were instrumental in the initial erection of the prototype MLC650 at ConExpo in Las Vegas. As the prototypes continue through testing, assembly and disassembly at the Manitowoc factory, the Bigge technicians continue to participate in the MLC650 project.

For more information on the MLC650 or to speak with a Bigge representative, call John Krane 303-905-8435 or email.
