First Potain MCT 325 Units sold to Active Crane Hire in Australia


Australian company Active Crane Hire purchased two Potain MCT 325 topless cranes during its launch in August. Both cranes will be delivered at the end of 2019 and will be mainly used for residential and commercial projects within Australia.

“We chose the MCT 325 for its versatility and to support the increasing preference for precast concrete in construction,” said Hermann Buchberger, managing director of Active Crane Hire. “We are looking forward to the MCT 325 bringing speed and simplicity to projects with its design that allows multiple units to overlap on site.”

With offices in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, Active Crane Hire sells, rents and offers maintenance services for tower cranes, self-erecting cranes, top-slewing cranes and electric luffing cranes in Australia. Over the past five years, the company has added over 70 Potain cranes to its fleet. From the self-erecting range, Active Crane Hire has added several Igo 36 and Igo 22 models to its fleet, as well as two Hup 32-27 self-erecting cranes.

The Potain MCT 325 is available in 12 t and 16 t version. This new topless crane can handle an impressive 2.5 t for the 12 t version and 2.3 t for the 16 t version at its maximum jib length of 75 m. This new topless crane is available across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, Russia and the CIS countries.
