product features

Konecranes M-series cranes have the following standard features:

  • Core of Lifting components, including motor, gearbox and controls specially designed for crane application.

  • Extended Speed Range (ESR) allows the hoist to run at up to double the nominal speed, improving cycle times by up to 20%

  • Unique hoisting machinery suspension improves component lifetime, supports alignment and performance

  • Improved design of rope reeving decreases rope wear and extends equipment lifetime

  • Equalizing beam avoids load/bottom block twist with two independent wire ropes instead of one

  • No exposed rotating connection shafts or couplings eliminates misalignment, reduces wear and improves safety.

  • Load sensors and condition monitoring unit improves safety

  • Hook latch trigger makes operation safer and more efficient

  • Trolley layout supports compact approach dimensions and uniform wheel load distribution

  • Trolley service platforms provide safe access to all inspection points

  • Full range of features especially tailored to requirements.

  • Intuitive and ergonomic user interface gives operator full control at all times

  • Multiple control options:

    • radio controls

    • computer tablets

    • Remote Operating Station (ROS)

    • Crane Management System (CMS)


  • Energy-efficient special drives where braking energy is fed back into the power grid.

  • TRUCONNECT provides real-time data on crane condition and performance
