Comansa is incorporating new features into its 11LC Series flat top crane range, and the improvements will soon be available on the company’s 16LC.
The flat top crane improvements include enhanced ergonomics, thanks to new and simplified accessing elements located not only on the cathead, but also on the jib sections for easy access to the trolley.
Furthermore, a new single trolley is now available as an option which features a manual single-double reeving change by the operator directly from the ground.
Comansa has equipped the cranes with new drives in the hoisting winch and trolley to provide new linear movements, thanks to attached potentiometers. This addition makes it possible to easily move and precisely position sensitive loads.
Furthermore, a new version of the 18-kW hoist mechanism has been added to the 6-ton flat top cranes, requiring less power supply while maintaining drum capacity and speed features.
Comansa’s Power Lift system is also standard on the cranes. The system improves the load diagram by 10 per cent at reduced speeds.
An optional 24 kW and 37 kW hoist motors are available, and feature the Effi-Plus system which increases significantly the hoisting and lowering speeds for light loads without increasing power or consumption.
Another significant innovation is the new “M” sized Cube cab together with a resized and redesigned platform for an easier erection and maintenance. The fully glazed front of the cab allows a complete view of the load and the work area, which, in turn, maximizes performance. The improved positioning of the seat and body posture also delivers excellent comfort to the crane operator.

The Quick Set system, which is already available in the 21LC series, has been introduced in the 11LC family as an option. The technology is designed to simplify the commissioning of cranes.
With Quick Set, the set up and calibration times have been significantly reduced, using a system that leads to easier, safer and more intuitive adjustments, achieving faster and less labour-intensive calibration.
Comansa continues to produce four models in the 11LC Series, including the 11LC90, 11LC132, 11LC150 and 11LC160. The company is also adding a new 6 tons version of the 11LC150 to the flat top crane range.
All of the machines, as a Flat-Top design, bring its well-known advantages as easier, faster and safer assembly, longer life for the structure and smaller distance between overlapping cranes.
