Tower crane manufacturer Potain has unveiled a brand-new self-erecting crane, the Evy 30-23 4 t.

The new model marks the first crane in the Evy range, the latest generation of Potain self-erecting cranes.

The new range of self-erecting cranes is designed using the Voice of the Customer product development process and market demands for simplicity and increased height under hook. As well, the new range will comply with the updated European Safety Standard EN 14439 for tower cranes.

“At Potain, we are driven to deliver innovative solutions that empower our customers. The Evy 30-23 4 t represents a significant milestone in our commitment to efficiency and ease of use in the construction industry,” said Rémi Deporte, Product Manager for self-erecting cranes at Potain.

Created for homebuilding

The Evy 30-23 4 t is specifically engineered for home and residential building construction of up to three stories in height. The crane offers a simple setup procedure and requires less manual operation than similar cranes. It boasts a 4 tonne maximum capacity and 1 tonne capacity from the tip of its 30 metre jib, enabling precise handling of heavy loads within an extensive radius.

Variable jib positions of 10, 20 or 30 degrees deliver a 35 metre maximum height under hook with a 30-degree raised jib.  As well, the jib can be hydraulically folded so that it is reduced to 15 metres long and can be shortened to 24 metres if required. It also includes a three-phase power system and permanent four-fall reeving.

The Evy 30-23 4 t self-erecting crane is equipped with the CCS Crane Control System, Smart Set-up, Power Control and Drive Control, providing operators with complete control and precision on the jobsite. The crane cab’s ergonomic design improves operator comfort, as it reduces manual operation, and lessens operator fatigue.

Connect telematics

The Evy 30-23 4 t self-erecting crane is also equipped with the Potain Connect telematics modem. This connectivity solution empowers users to monitor and analyze crane utilization. Conect telematics also allows for remote and local diagnostics thanks to the Access and Assist applications, promoting greater efficiency and informed decision-making.

When it comes to transporting the crane to or from the jobsite, the Evy 30-23 4 t is compatible with existing axles, enabling easy transportation as a trailer at 25 km per hour or as a semi-trailer at 80 km per hour.
