Manitowoc Offers Fixed Jib for 16000 Crawler Crane

Manitowoc Cranes, Manitowoc, Wis., released a fixed jib option for its 440-ton Manitowoc 16000 crawler crane. Typically used in offshore oil platform fabrication yards, on transportation and infrastructure projects, and in refineries and petrochemical facilities, this new option complements the existing luffing jib attachment.

The 16000’s fixed jib has a 102-ton capacity and a maximum length of 140 feet. At a length of 80 feet, the fixed jib can be installed on a 236.2-foot main boom.

This newly designed jib helps reduce rigging time for applications where luffing is not required or at sites that do not facilitate the use of a luffing jib.

Jerry Maloney, global product director for crawler cranes at Manitowoc, said that this fixed jib is useful in any situations in which the crane operator must lift up and over existing structures. “Those that will benefit the most from the new fixed jib are users that need to reach up and over, but not necessarily manipulate the jib,” he said.

The 16000 fixed jib incorporates inserts and other components from the Manitowoc Model 2250 luffing jib.
