Manitowoc MLC 650s and MLC 300s in the test yard

A suspended platform, also known as a swing stage or suspended scaffold, is a type of adjustable, temporary platform used for working at heights. It is typically suspended from an overhead structure using ropes, cables, or chains and can be raised or lowered to the desired working level. Suspended platforms are commonly used for tasks such as window cleaning, painting, construction, and maintenance of buildings, especially high-rise structures.
These platforms are equipped with safety features such as guardrails, and workers are required to use personal protective equipment like harnesses to prevent falls. Suspended platforms offer flexibility and access to difficult-to-reach areas, making them an essential tool in many industries where work on vertical surfaces is required

A few mlc650s and mlc300s in the Manitowoc test yard undergoing testing before they are shipped out to the customer. One mlc650 has the vpc-max/luffer, and a mlc300 has luffer. This is probably the last time I will ever see this place or cranes there as Manitowoc is moving this plant to shady grove PA
