Abbotsford, BC, Canada October 28, 2008 At SAIE™s October 2008 exhibition in Bologna, Italy San Marco International S.r.l. unveiled the most powerful self erecting tower cranes they have ever developed and brought to market in their 46 year history. As San Marco™s exclusive North American distributor Eagle West Equipment anticipates a strong response to these new cranes.


The two cranes, known as SM-45N and SM-45L feature telescopic extending masts with up to four optional climbing sections, 45 meter (147™ 8″) hydraulic unfolding jibs and state-of-the-art electronic control systems featuring radio remote control and LMI systems as well as advanced “black box” data recording systems.


These two models are the first in a series of cranes introducing the combined advantages of both telescopic and hydraulic erecting tower cranes.

“The 45N crane is the first model in our new series and brings with it many special features; including telescopic elements, the ability to add elements from the base, as well as large dimensions that will provide the needed lifting power on expansive job sites,” says Antonio Cerutti, CEO of San Marco International S.r.l.


Final testing and certifications will take place this year and this crane series will enter the San Marco production schedule in early 2009.


Gerry Wiebe, Vice President of Sales & Business Development for Eagle West Equipment Inc., stated, “we are very pleased with San Marco™s decision to undertake production of this crane series. The size, reach and especially jib tip hoisting capacity will make this crane series a strong contender in every market in America. We know from past experience that the San Marco product is highly reliable, cost effective to own and operate, and will bring significant value to both crane rental operations and end users.”


Wiebe further stated, “Having this crane series available through our expanding dealer network will bring the value end users need and deserve in these trying economic times. A clear option now exists in this crane class against what has to date been a market dominated by a single brand.”
