Manitowoc introduces new Hup 32-27 at BTP Expo 2016


At this year’s BTP Expo, Liège, Manitowoc introduced the new Hup 32-27 to the Belgian public for the first time with long-standing local dealer, Belgium Lifting & Equipment (BLE). The new Hup 32-27 was officially launched at bauma 2016, which took place in Munich, Germany, last month.


“Exhibiting at this year’s BTP Expo trade show gave us the perfect opportunity to showcase the new ground-breaking Hup 32-27,” said Paul Spaepen, managing director at BLE. “Many people at the event had already read about this crane and expressed an interest in it, so it was great to be able to show visitors the machine and demonstrate its new features and wide range of capabilities.”


The Hup 32-27 has a maximum capacity of 4 t while it can lift 1 t at its jib end of 32 m. The maximum height under hook attainable by the crane is an impressive 40 m. Further versatility is delivered through the jib’s luffing capability with a choice of three raised positions at 10°, 20° and 30°, in addition to horizontal. The crane also features an adjustable two-section mast that has a third section contained within the second. This design allows the third mast section to be telescoped out, boosting the working height of the crane to 27 m.


Also on the stand joining the Hup 32-27, was the Montalift M21-4WDS, a four wheel drive mobile tower crane built by the rental company Montarent.


The trade fair took place at Liège Expo in Liège, Belgium, from the 27 to the 29 May.
