“Manitex is pleased to launch the first of its kind electric crane, yet another example of the industry-leading innovation that Manitex brings to market,” stated Jeff Long, General Manager Sales of Manitex. “The voice of the customer played a critical role in bringing this new and exciting optional module for the Manitex TC series cranes to market. The ECSY is designed to be easily moved from one crane to another in rental fleets that are equipped with the “ECSY Ready” package.” 

Hunter Smith, Rental Manager for Rush Crane & Refuse Systems, commented “We at Rush Crane Systems believe that the ECSY product line will enable our customers to get the most out of their crane while having a positive impact on the environment.  This is only the first step, and with an innovative long-term partner like Manitex, we are very optimistic for the future of electrification in our industry.”

“At Manitex, we continue to listen to our dealers and end-users as we develop new, higher capacity cranes that are ideally suited for a wide variety of end market applications, concluded Long.  “Manitex is committed to bringing new, more efficient practical innovations to the global market to meet the growing needs of an evolving market and the introduction of ECSY is an important step in this evolution.”
