The fastest installation for a luffing jib crane

  • The MCH 125A erects faster and more easily than a luffing crane ever has before
  • Hydraulic system components are connected at the factory for faster and easier erection
  • No luffing wire rope installation needed thanks to the innovative hydraulic system
  • Hoisting winch maintenance derrick and the jib wind side plate are also pre-installed
  • Unique wind-sail configuration pre-installed at the factory with no need to adapt onsite for any jib length

Ideal for the most constrained jobsites

  • Jib can be raised up to near vertical position: 87° angle luffing capacity
  • Very short 7 m Counter jib with simple fixed counterweight installation
  • Very short out-of-service weathervaning radius of 9.3 m is ideal for congested job sites
  • Cab can be installed either on the right or the left side of the crane allowing the crane to position close to a building

  • LVF: Frequency Variation Lifting mechanisms with 2 hoisting winch options > 40 LVF 20 / 60 LVFC 20 Optima

  • Max hoisting speed 81 m/min with 2t for 40 LVF 20

  • Max hoisting speed 120 m/min with 1t for 60 LVFC 20 Optima

  • Drum spooling capacity 456 m 553 m

  • RVFC 152 Optima + Slewing mechanism with speeds up to 0.8 rpm

  • RVF 152 Optima + Slewing mechanism with speeds up to 0.8 rpm

Best return on investment

  • Most adaptable luffing jib crane for congested urban job sites
  • Time saving for erecting and dismantling the crane
  • Optimized transport for easy and cost-effective logistics
  • Standard 1.6 m or 2 m L-mast systems for fleet optimization

Most optimized transport available

  • Four containers or four trucks needed for the complete upper slewing crane part
  • Compact dimensions of the counter-jib and jib foot also maximize transportability and reduce costs
