Leading tower crane brand Potain announced a brand-new self-erecting crane, the Evy 30-23 4 t.
This new model marks the debut of the Evy range, the latest generation of Potain self-erecting cranes, designed using the Voice of the Customer product development process and market demands for simplicity and increased height under hook, as well as complying with the updated European Safety Standard EN 14439 for tower cranes.
The Evy 30-23 4 t is specifically engineered for home construction and residential building construction of up to three stories in height. The crane offers a simple setup procedure and requires less manual operation than similar cranes. It boasts an impressive 4.4 ton maximum capacity and 1.1 ton capacity from the tip of its substantial 98 ft. jib, enabling precise handling of heavy loads within an extensive radius.
Variable jib positions of 10, 20 or 30 degrees deliver an impressive 114.8 ft. maximum height under hook with a 30-degree raised jib. The jib also can be hydraulically folded so that it is just 49 ft. long and can be shortened to 78.7 ft. if required. It also includes a three-phase power system and permanent four-fall reeving.
The Evy 30-23 4 t is equipped with the CCS Crane Control System, Smart Set-up, Power Control and Drive Control, providing operators with complete control and precision on the job site. Its ergonomic design improves operator comfort, as it reduces manual operation, and lessens operator fatigue.
Another standout feature of the Evy 30-23 4 t is the inclusion of the Potain CONNECT telematic modem. This connectivity solution empowers users to monitor and analyze crane utilization, and allows for remote and local diagnostics thanks to the Access and Assist applications, promoting greater efficiency and informed decision-making.
When it comes to transportation, the Evy 30-23 4 t is compatible with existing axles, enabling easy transportation as a trailer at 15.5 mph or as a semi-trailer at 50 mph.
"At Potain, we are driven to deliver innovative solutions that empower our customers. The Evy 30-23 4 t represents a significant milestone in our commitment to efficiency and ease of use in the construction industry," said Rémi Deporte, product manager of self-erecting cranes at Potain.
