GIS Expo 2023 witnesses Italian launch of Grove GRT8100-1

Manitowoc displayed a range of Grove mobile cranes at GIS Expo 2023.

Manitowoc’s Grove GRT8100-1 has been launched in Italy for the first time, after the manufacturer exhibited the machine at GIS Expo 2023.

The 100-tonne rough terrain crane, which was launched at Bauma 2022 in Germany, was displayed alongside the Grove GMK5250XL-1 and GMK5150XL all-terrain cranes.

Enrico Angiolini, regional managing director for Manitowoc in Italy, said visitors were happy to get a first look at the GRT8100-1 and learn more about the full range of services on offer from Manitowoc.

“GIS Expo has continued to grow in importance, and we were pleased to see so many customers, colleagues, and partners at the exhibition,” he said. “We were also proud to showcase the new GRT8100-1 which is now available in Italy, and which is built at our factory in Niella Tanaro, less than 200 kilometres from Piacenza.”

Grove’s new GRT8100-1 is an upgraded version of its previous hit, the GRT8100. The model now includes an improved, six-cylinder, turbocharged, and water-cooled Cummins B6.7 L engine that complies with EUROMOT Stage 5 regulations for use across Europe. Additionally, the 100-tonne capacity machine features 360-degree load charts and a five section, 12-47m main boom – the same as its predecessor.

Another new feature on the GRT8100-1 is its chassis which gives customers the option to integrate the MaxBase variable position outrigger system. This can provide capacity improvements of up to 15 per cent, making the machine a supreme choice according to Product Manager for rough-terrain cranes at Manitowoc Federico Lovera.


“The Grove GRT8100-1 is a great choice for customers looking for a strong crane with fast operations that can work productively on job sites over the long term,” he said. “It’s perfect for a range of applications, including on infrastructure jobs, at power plants, in ports or in industrial facilities.”

GIS Expo 2023 is Europe’s largest exhibition for the lifting, industrial and port handling, and heavy transport industries. This year’s show gathered over 400 exhibitors representing leading equipment companies.
