Crane Hot Line Magazine Showcases Ronco in November

Ronco was featured in the November 2022 issue of Crane Hot Line magazine.

Our newest crane, the Potain MDT 289, is the first of its kind in North America. It has a maximum freestanding height of 223.1', a maximum lifting capacity of 13.2 USt, maximum radius of 230' and a maximum jib-tip capacity of 3.1 USt at 230'. The MDT 289 is right-sized for the types of projects we do — it's the right combination of size, capacity, performance and flexibility. And it's already on it's first job — the Hampton Inn at UNMC. The crane was erected in July 2022 and will remain onsite until March 2023. This crane is another example of how we can offer our customers a broader range of solutions.
