New Valla radio-controlled cranes

July 4, 2023  By Valla

The Valla division of Manitex is to launch two new pedestrian controlled pick & carry cranes, the 4.6 tonne V46 R and the 13 tonne V130 RX in October. They join the recently annouced seven tonne 70 R and new 10 tonne V100 RX.

The battery electric V46 R fits into the product line up between the current 3.6 tonne V36 R and six tonne V60 R. The radio remote controlled crane features a three section 7.5 metre boom which can be equipped with a short luffing jib. The crane has a maximum forward reach of 4.5 metres from the front bumper at which point it can handle 660kg. Capacity at full height is 2.45 tonnes. The maximum capacity can be taken to a height of more than four metres, marginally beyond the front bumper.

The front wheel drive, rear wheel steer crane has an overall width of just 900mm, an overall height of 1.56 metres and an overall chassis length of 2.47 metres. Overall weight is 4.33 tonnes. The total counterweight is 900kg.

A tilting boom nose and non-marking tyres are standard, while options include a winch, ATEX explosion proofing and lithium battery pack, as well as the jib.


The 13 tonne V130 RX is as compact as its ‘sister crane’ – the 10 tonne V110 R – when stowed, thanks to its telescopic chassis that extends from an overall length of 3.7 metres to 4.4 metres. It features a 10 metre three section boom, to which a short hydraulically luffing jib can be added. Capacity at full height is seven tonnes, while capacity at maximum forward reach of six metres from the front bumper is just over three tonnes. Overall width is 1.5 metres with an overall height of 1.95 metres. The dual 2.1 tonne counterweights can be removed to reduce weight.
