The six-axle model has a maximum load capacity of 400 tonnes and a 60 m-long five-section boom. 

Heaton also ordered the MegaWingLift attachment which, according to Manitowoc, can increase lift the capacity on the main boom by up to 70 percent. 

Billy Hancock Jr, vice president at Heaton Erecting, said: “A lot of the work we do is building data centres, and the GMK6400-1 will be a great fit with that type of mechanical work. 

“We’ll be installing 72 cooling units on the roof of one data centre soon, as well as providing a hook for pipes, lights, and other components. This crane will also give us the ability to assist in the assembly and disassembly of tower cranes across Atlanta.”
