Manitex has made two improvements to its CD4430R, a 30-U.S.-ton capacity cab-down rough terrain crane designed to meet the needs of the rail industry.

Manitex has updated the CD4430R with a Cummins B6.7 Liter 325-hp Tier 4/Stage V diesel engine that meets current emission standards while also delivering more power, more torque, and easier maintenance. The simpler maintenance comes from having all the exhaust emission systems in one container mounted atop the engine.

The second major improvement is an all-new touchscreen display that is easy for operators to use and that gives them more information and controls in one interface. It also lets the operator easily select and control operation.

Manitex said that all of the improvements are based on input from customers.  The Manitex CD4430R offers a two-section 53’ formed boom with integrated rail gear system. It is designed for the rugged environment of railroad work.
