Heavy Equipment Guide: Raimondi unveils LR273 luffing jib crane

Raimondi LR273 luffing jib crane

The exhibition also saw the first showing of the hydraulic luffing LRH174 and an exclusive preview of the company’s largest tower crane to date, the MRT573

Raimondi Cranes SpA showcased three cranes onsite at Bauma 2019. Two of the cranes were shown alongside the MRT573’s slewing unit, cabin mast and counterjib. “We decided the best presentation of the MRT573 was at ground level simply to bring people up close and personal with our newest product,” explained Eng. Domenico Ciano, Chief Operations Officer, Raimondi Cranes.

“As Raimondi’s largest-ever crane, it was important to us that our clients could experience the strength and impressive dimensions of the machine. The MRT573 may be mounted on a GR5H tower with pin connection or on a GR6L tower with bolt connection, the latter already on show as part of the fully-erected LR273. Visitors to our exhibit were granted access to the slewing platform, and were able to examine the electric panel’s architecture,” Ciano continued. “It is worth mentioning that the LR273 and the MRT573 can both be used on the aforementioned towers without a transfer mast, a cost effective and simple solution that we have implemented not yet prevalent in the tower crane marketplace.” Raimondi Cranes has applied this solution to all products above 300 tonne-meter capacity.
