News Release

Manitowoc Cranes celebrates release and purchase of National Crane NTC55 at CONEXPO 2017

3/9/2017

Manitowoc Cranes celebrated the release and first five retail orders for the new National Crane NTC55 truck crane at a special ceremony at CONEXPO 2017 in Las Vegas. Chief among the invitees was Stephenson Equipment, the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based dealer that partnered with Manitowoc to design the crane. In addition, five of Stephenson’s customers that placed orders for the new truck crane were honored at the celebration: Mount Joy, Pennsylvania-based Greiner Crane, the first company to purchase the NTC55; York, Pennsylvania-based Iron Stag Crane Service; Williamsport, Pennsylvania-based Allison Crane & Rigging; Skippack, Pennsylvania-based H&K Group; and Bob’s Crane Service, based in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

Manitowoc presented Stephenson with a commemorative plaque during the ceremony, and three of the five initial retail customers—Iron Stag, Allison Crane and Bob’s Crane Service—were treated to a champagne toast. Stephenson’s heavy investment in expanding its own fleet with NTC55s was commemorated, as well.

The all-new 55 USt NTC55 is an evolved truck crane “replacement” that can maneuver into the tight working quarters typically reserved for a truck crane, but with the added features of a boom truck to increase versatility on the job site. The new model boasts a four-position outrigger system that gives the crane the reach and capacity of a 55 USt boom truck when fully extended. In tighter working quarters, such as those found in urban environments, the NTC55 can retract its outriggers to 75% span to take up less space while maintaining greater capacity than competing truck cranes with similar footprints. A new hydraulically removable counterweight system, 80° max boom angle and a 20° tilting operators cab—a first for National Crane—further add to its operator-centric design.
