Posted on June 14, 2016

Raimondi Cranes SpA, established in 1863, has unveiled the new MRT159 topless crane at ANKOMAK 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey. The Raimondi MRT159, with a 65 meter jib length and a maximum tip load of 1650 kg, boasts a maximum load of 10,000 kg. Deliveries of the new crane will commence in July 2016, following its presentation at this year’s ANKOMAK exhibition.

“The MRT159 adopts the new topless crane range design by Raimondi, but we have integrated new solutions that improve safety and that facilitate ideal installation on the jobsite. The flexibility of the MRT159 now has more jib configurations available, and a selection of three different winches with respective powers of 30 kW, 37 Kw, and 45 Kw,” explains Eng. Domenico Ciano, Technical Director, Raimondi Cranes. Ciano further points out that the Raimondi MRT159 has more capacity when compared with the Raimondi MRT152, and that the long jib radius increases the tip load by 25 percent, also by comparison. 

According to the organizers, ANKOMAK 2016 brings together more than 1,000 brands and expects over 25,000 attendees, making it one of the region’s most relevant “biennial construction industry events.” AKEM Group, the official Turkish-based Raimondi Cranes agent, was onsite at ANKOMARK 2016 with the erected newly-released MRT159 for the duration of the event.
