Bigge Crane & Rigging celebrates purchase of new Potain MDT 219 at CONEXPO 2017


Bigge Crane & Rigging celebrated the purchase of a new Potain MDT 219 tower crane at CONEXPO 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Manitowoc joined Bigge on stage for a champagne toast to commemorate not only the recent purchase, but the long-standing relationship between the two companies. Bigge was also presented with a celebratory plaque and a customized, hand-painted hard hat, one of only a dozen ever made.

The 10 t (11 USt) Potain MDT 219’s faster setup and configuration, enhanced operator controls and simplified maintenance and monitoring functions over previous generation tower cranes have already spurred many companies in Europe, and more recently, in both North and Latin America to add the crane to their fleets, increasing their efficiency and return on investment in the process.

San Leandro, California-based Bigge Crane & Rigging has been serving the commercial, government, and industrial markets—including the power generation and petroleum refinery sectors—since 1916. The company’s new Potain MDT 219 is currently on display at Manitowoc’s CONEXPO booth (Gold Lot Booth G3348).
