National Crane NBT40-2 series boom trucks Proud Debut for Manitowoc at CONEXPO

National Crane has launched a new addition to its popular NBT boom truck range with the NBT40-2 series. It will be on display at CONEXPO 2020 this month, and it’s one of six new cranes that will make their tradeshow debuts from Manitowoc at this year’s show. The new NBT40-2 series is proudly American-made, manufactured at the company’s factory in Shady Grove, Pennsylvania.

National Crane boom trucks are a popular choice with contractors for their versatility and comfort, as well as class-leading features. The NBT40-2 series is a combined re-engineering of the reliable NBT40-1 series and popular NBT50L series, by upgrading the product in terms of capacity, reach, comfort and advanced features while maintaining the same overall weight as the NBT40-1.

“The NBT40-2 series continues the evolution to the next generation of boom trucks started with the NBT50L Series,” said Bob Ritter, product manager of boom trucks at Manitowoc. “It’s a complete re-engineering of our boom truck series, and it improves on many aspects of its predecessors, providing the strongest and most competitive load charts available for a 40 USt or 45 USt boom truck with no increase to the GVW of the crane. With two options for capacity and reach, we’re providing customers with options that suit their specific needs. It’s another example of Manitowoc’s Voice of the Customer product development process in action.”

The new NBT40-2 series has the option for either a 40 USt or 45 USt (36.3 t or 40.8 t) capacity, and a 127 ft (38.7 m) or 142 ft (43.3 m) main boom. It will offer a two-piece 31 ft (9.4 m) – 55 ft (16.8 m) telescoping jib and it features a maximum tip height of 150 ft (45.7 m), which can extend to 204 ft (62.2 m) with the jib.

The crane’s specifications make it ideal for work in the commercial or residential construction industries, due to its versatile boom lengths and excellence in close charts or capacity at reach. It’s also ideal for the utility or tree service industries, especially when needing 200 ft (61 m) plus of platform height. The tree service industry in particular will find the crane suitable for its rugged design with great capacity and long reach.
