Six challenges: six solutions

Potain self-erecting cranes help contractors overcome a whole host of roadblocks on today’s jobsites. In this article we take a look at six of the most comment project headaches – plus their Potain self-erecting crane solutions.


Challenge: Limited reach and lift capacities of traditional equipment


Solution: With outstanding up-and-over reach, increased capacity, and remote control, Potain’s self-erecting cranes can provide efficiency and access to the entire jobsite. That means less time tied up in material handling planning, and more time focused on lifting and jobsite productivity.

 

Challenge: Jobsite congestion


Solution: Potain self-erecting cranes have a small footprint, which can effectively reduce traffic and clutter on the jobsite. They are quick to set up and erect, and no assist crane is required. They also handle the work of multiple mobile machines, which means fewer vehicles are needed on site.

 

Challenge: Multiple lifting tasks and labor delays


Solution: A Potain self-erecting crane is the ultimate jobsite tool. One piece of equipment can replace other specialized types of machines. In residential construction, for example, a single crane can handle masonry, concrete, floor joist, prefab wall, roof truss, roofing, and hardscaping applications. In addition, Potain self-erecting cranes also minimize the amount of workforce labor required, limiting issues caused by worker shortages.

 

Challenge: High costs of foundation prep and jobsite restoration


Solution: Potain self-erecting cranes can be installed without costly engineered foundations and leave the jobsite with nothing to clean up and nothing to resurface. Faster in, faster out. Meaning you can get moving to the next project without delay.

 

Challenge: City restrictions and environmental issues


Solution: Potain self-erecting cranes operate from site power, generator, or multiple means of AC power source. Electric power means no loud engines, exhaust, DEF, or noise issues. As urban jobsites become increasingly restrictive in terms of machine permits and developers look to more sustainable construction processes, Potain self-erecting cranes help you stay ahead of the game.

 

Challenge: High machine maintenance costs


Solution: Potain self-erecting cranes help reduce the total cost of ownership for machinery. They have fewer wear items and require less maintenance than combustion engine-powered equipment. That keeps your focus on the project, and not on the service team.
