Manitowoc is launching a new version of its 53 tonne National Crane NBT60L truck crane; the NBT60XL.

The NBT60XL is not merely a counterweight upgrade to the NBT60L. To achieve its capacity and reach, the crane can be fitted to several standard truck options expanding layout configuration options for customers. The NBT60XL features a hydraulically removable counterweight configurable from zero to 16,000 pounds, allowing it to take on heavier picks. When equipped with the National Truck Crane (NTC) package, the machine will feature additional jobsite setup flexibility with four outrigger positions, optional two-camera system for increased jobsite visibility, and a fully integrated wireless wind speed indicator.

“In order to get even more capacity and maintain overall agility, these ‘truck crane’-style counterweights offer many combinations allowing operators to take what is needed for the job and still meet any roading regulations,” said Bob Ritter, product manager of boom trucks at Manitowoc.

The NBT60XL comes standard with several operator-centric features, such as the deluxe tilting cab with heated seat and a Bluetooth/AM/FM radio and speakers. Additional state-of-the-art features on the NBT60XL include electric over hydraulic controls with a function to adjust the speed, an easy-to-use colour graphic display and real-time diagnostics for simplified troubleshooting without the need for a laptop.
