Australian contractor Mosaic Construction recently received delivery of a Potain Hup 32-27 self-erecting tower crane. The crane was used to help with the construction of a residential development in Caloundra, Queensland. The development, named Cyan, is a 31-unit apartment complex that includes two penthouses.

Brendan Dale, Director of Mosaic Construction, was satisfied with the machine’s performance.

“The Hup 32-27 was a great choice for this project as it was easy to set up. It also provides multiple configurations, so we can change the working height or jib length when we need to,” he said. “Our operators really liked the variable speeds of the hoist and trolley on the Hup 32-27. The digital display is also very user friendly. Overall, the Hup 32-27 is fuss free to operate and allows us to focus on the work.”

The Hup 32-27 has a maximum capacity of 4 tons, a maximum tip capacity of 1 ton, and a hook height of 27 meters. The jib can be folded or unfolded as required.

It is Mosaic Construction’s second Potain self-erecting crane. Previously the company owned an Igo 36. The company’s operators emphasized the greater control of the Hup 32-27.

The Potain Hup 32-27 is manufactured by Manitowoc. In addition to self-erecting tower cranes, the multi-national company provides a range of telescoping cranes, boom crawler cranes, boom trucks and carrydeck cranes. They also offer a selection of used cranes.
