Franna Launches FR 17 at Excon 2022 in India

Bengaluru, May 17, 2022: Franna® - A Terex Brand and the leading manufacturer of mobile pick and carry cranes recently made their debut at Excon India, South Asia’s largest construction equipment exhibition. The event took place on 17-21 May 2022 at BIEC Grounds, Bengaluru.

Combining high productivity with enhanced safety features, the FR 17 is the first Franna pick and carry crane to be locally manufactured at the Terex facility in Hosur. With a maximum rated capacity of 17 tonne, the FR 17 provides operators with the flexibility and versatility to cater for several different lifting applications. This 4WD crane has been designed with clutch free operation and is available with outriggers in the Indian market.

The FR 17 is a very compact pick and carry mobile crane from Franna product range specially designed for Indian market for higher lifting capacity applications. Franna pick and carry cranes live up to their name with the strength and easy operation to pick up heavy loads and the articulated steering flexibility to move in tight spaces. Their high road speeds get them to the jobsite quickly. This machine has a large torque converter, there is no clutch pedal which reduces driver fatigue while working for long crane hours. This crane combines safety and comfort with smooth steering flexibility, providing the operator with the ability to lift and manoeuvre in tight spaces. The heavy-duty U section fabricated boom with welding on the neutral axis offers superior durability and a competitive edge while lifting heavy loads.

Apart from Franna, Powerscreen, Finlay, MPS, TWS and EvoQuip will also be at Excon showing new machinery and equipment.

Managing Director of Terex MP Asia & EMEAR, Mr. Jaideep Shekhar FR 17 says, “the brands we have exhibiting at this year’s Excon are a true representation of all the variations of machinery and products that we at Terex MP have to offer across the board. From pick and carry cranes to cone crushers, the variety that will be on show is something that I am very proud of. On top of this the fact that who unveiled the many of these are brand new pieces that have never before been shown makes this year a particularly exciting one for us. We look forward to being back to meeting all existing and new potential customers and partners face-to-face once again this year and showing off our new innovations.”
