Manitowoc Engineering Co.,
Manitowoc, Wise., Walter Wright
Mammoet (S) Pte. Ltd., and Coastal
Equipment Singapore Pte. Ltd., have jointly announced an initial order for two 1,200-metric-ton-capacity
Manitowoc model M-1200R RingerR cranes.
The model M-1200R is a recent innovation from Manitowoc, which combines a 600-foot Ringer attach- ment with an M-250, the flagship of its M-Series line.
The M-1200R provides nominal capacities of 750 and 1,200 metric tons. It also retains the M-Series philosophy of fast set-up and ease of transport, as the M-1200R attach- ment extensively relies upon
Manitowoc's FACT™ (Fast Align- ment Connection Technology) system and conforms with interna- tional road weight and dimension transport standards.
The M-1200R also includes mod- ular counterweight and boom carriers plus Manitowoc's patented
Ringer-SwingersR and various com- binations of boom and mast to provide a 750-metric-ton capacity at 60-foot radius on 140-foot boom and 1,2000-metric-ton capacity at 60-foot radius on 150-foot boom.

A full range of hatch cover cranes from Marine Travelift, Sturgeon
Bay, Wise., enable the removal and replacement of heavy hatch covers.
From 15- to 60-ton capacities, the cranes are designed for the salt wa- ter service of bulk cargo vessels and oceangoing ships.
A completely self-contained unit, the hatch cover crane features cen- tralized controls at the operator's station. The station is located for best visibility during travel and cov- er placement. The controls shift into neutral automatically for safety.
The Marine Travelift Hatch Cov- er Crane drives on all four wheels to assure traction and prevent yaw.
Traveling on permanently mounted fixed rails, the main box girder is supported at each end by flanged wheel dollies. The unit's low height permits good visibility from the bridge, and clearance for shoreside obstructions.
Hatch covers are lifted with self- engaging hooks attached to lifting beams, which are raised or lowered by dual hydraulic cylinders. The hydraulic pump is driven by a diesel or waterproofed electric motor. Hy- draulic motion control valves prevent overspeeding and provide smooth deceleration.
Unit dimensions and lifting ca- pacities are adaptable to individual requirements.
