The components of Manitowoc 8500

The Manitowoc 8500 is a crawler crane that consists of several components in its upperworks, lowerworks, and various attachments. Here’s a breakdown of the components:

the upperworks of Manitowoc 8500

The upperworks of the Manitowoc 8500 crawler crane encompass critical components necessary for its operation. Powering the crane is the robust Hino J08E-TM Diesel engine. Precise control over various operations, such as load hoisting, boom hoisting, swinging, and propulsion, is achieved through the hydraulic control system. The hydraulic system, consisting of pumps, motors, reservoirs, and cooling mechanisms, provides the necessary power for smooth and controlled hydraulic functions. To facilitate load hoisting, the crane is equipped with front and rear drums operated by hydraulic motors featuring holding brakes. A swing system incorporating a hydraulic motor and braking mechanism enables unrestricted 360-degree rotation. The boom support system, comprising a drum, motor, and braking mechanisms, ensures secure and safe boom hoisting. The gantry, a high folding structure with a sheave frame, aids in boom hoist reeving and can be hydraulically elevated. A removable counterweight guarantees stability during lifting operations. The operator’s cab offers optimal visibility and houses essential controls, instruments, and comfort features. Gauges and a monitoring system provide real-time information, while safety devices, including function lock levers, anti-two-block systems, limit switches, alarms, boom backstops, and load moment indicators, enhance operational safety.

Manitowoc 8500 lowerworks

The lowerworks of this Manitowoc crawler crane consist of essential components that contribute to its mobility and stability.


At the core of the lowerworks is the sturdy carbody, constructed with welded steel. This robust structure serves as the foundation and support for the crane’s operations, ensuring stability during lifting and movement.


The crane is equipped with crawler assemblies, which are instrumental in its mobility across various terrains. These crawler assemblies possess hydraulic extendible and retractable capabilities, allowing the crane to adapt to different ground conditions and maintain balance during operations.

Crawler Drive

Driving the crawlers is a hydraulic crawler drive system. The specific details of this system may vary based on the model and configuration of the Manitowoc 8500. Nevertheless, it typically incorporates hydraulic drives for the crawler tracks, enabling the crane to move and position itself effectively.

Manitowoc 8500 Attachments

The Manitowoc 8500 can be equipped with various attachments and accessories to enhance its functionality and adapt to different job requirements. Some common attachments include:

  • Boom Attachments: The crane can have different boom configurations, such as lattice booms or tubular booms, with various lengths and sections to achieve different lifting capacities and reach.

  • Jib Attachments: A jib attachment can be added to extend the reach of the crane and allow for specific lifting scenarios, such as lifting over obstacles or reaching greater heights.

  • Auxiliary Hoist: An auxiliary hoist attachment provides additional lifting capabilities and flexibility for the crane.

  • Luffing Jib: The crane can be equipped with a luffing jib, which allows the boom to move vertically to adjust the hook height while maintaining a fixed angle.
