Manitowoc to showcase latest Shuttlelift crane at The Rental Show

Manitowoc Cranes will exhibit its Shuttlelift SCD15 crane at The Rental Show 2019, which will take place from February 17-20 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

The Shuttlelift SCD15 was first unveiled at The Rental Show 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The 15 USt capacity carry deck crane is on show at Manitowoc’s booth 6877, and it’s been designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the rental market.

Mike Heinrich, Manitowoc’s Vice President of Sales for National Crane and Industrial Cranes, said this crane model has grown in popularity over the last few years and show attendees have come to expect it to be there. One improvement on the machine is the SCD15’s larger, more comfortable cab, which measures nearly 5 inches wider than the previous models. Other operator-focused features include a split cab door with sliding glass windows; a full LED lighting package for improved, longer-lasting visibility; and a graphical, easy-to-learn Rated Capacity Limiter (RCL) system.

The SCD15 has a storage tray and main storage box in the front centre of the carrier that are suitable for storing the downhaul ball, hook block or rigging equipment. An additional storage box is located on the right-hand side of the machine for stowing smaller tools or equipment for the operator.

Improved return on investment for owners is facilitated through the optional Tier 4 Final Cummins QSF 3.8 L engine, which enables the crane to operate without the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). This adds to the simplicity of operating the crane and eliminates the need for a second tank to be filled with a separate fluid while on the job, making it more suitable for rental use.

The SCD15 features an exclusive pivoting boom nose, which enables operators to gain more clearance and better access in confined areas, such as those frequently found in industrial settings. The boom nose can be moved into three positions: 0°, 40° and 80°. At 80°, the boom nose is pivoted fully forward, decreasing head height by more than 1 ft for optimal accessibility.

Three steering modes come as standard: two-wheel (front only), four-wheel coordinated, and crab. Combined with a tight turning radius, the SCD15 offers versatility and maneuverability on the job site.

The SCD15 has a standard, three-section 41 ft boom, but customers also have the option of a four-section, full-power 50 ft boom. A 15 ft fixed swing-away extension is also available for a maximum tip height of 69.5 ft. The jib extension can be offset at 0°, -15° and -30° with help from the pivoting boom nose.
