News Release

North American Crane & Rigging celebrates purchase of two Potain MDT 389 tower cranes at CONEXPO 2017

3/13/2017

North American Crane & Rigging celebrated the expansion of its rental fleet at CONEXPO 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Providence, Rhode Island-based company purchased two new Potain MDT 389 tower cranes from Shawmut Equipment—based in Manchester, Connecticut—and celebrated with Manitowoc Cranes during a ceremony at the Manitowoc booth, which included a champagne toast between the three companies.

The MDT 389 is from Potain’s new line of CCS Tower Cranes that feature the company’s Crane Control System (CCS). This user-friendly operating system offers owners the highest levels of comfort, flexibility and ergonomic control, translating to better return on investment. The MDT CCS Topless concept enables complex multi-crane installations, and the assembly, erection, transport and maintenance phases are shorter than previous generations of tower cranes.
