Manitowoc MLC300 Crane Overview and Specifications
Manitowoc’s new Model MLC300 utilizes Variable Position Counterweight™(VPC™) proprietary technology to “actively” engage all counterweight and eliminate the need for “passive” carbody weights. The design results in a dramatically reduced transport configuration and better center of gravity for reduced ground bearing pressures. The Model MLC300 is available in VPC™ and VPC-MAX™ configurations for additional capacity.
Crane Control System: The Crane Control System offers a user-friendly interface, two full graphic displays mounted horizontally for better visibility, a jog dial for easier data input and ergonomic joysticks.
Variable Position Counterweight™ (VPC™): The Manitowoc MLC300 features a counterweight system which automatically positions the crane’s counterweight as required to match lifting demands. Crane lifting capability is optimized by automatic positioning of the counterweight, eliminating the need for carbody counterweight. Additionally, counterweight boxes are designed to be common across multiple crane platforms and are utilized on Manitowoc Model MLC650 as well as future models.
VPC-MAX™: Capacity and boom and jib combination lengths can be increased through addition of the exclusive VPCMAX™ attachment. The VPC-MAX™ attachment, configured with 98.4 ft fixed mast counterweight beam and standard VPC™ components, increases the max load moment of the MLC300. The position of the VPC-MAX™ counterweight is automatically positioned based on lifted load, boom length or boom and jib length and load radius.
