Manitowoc will soon launch a follow-up to the Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane that was launched in 2010.
Manitowoc says the new 300t capacity model – the GMK6300L-1 – will bring “new levels of performance leadership to the six-axle category.”
Several improvements have been made to the structural strength of the machine, which have improved load charts by over 7% on average when compared with the GMK6300L. At height, the improvements are even better, with advantages of over 16% in the boom length range of 70m – 80m.
It features a maximum tip height of 120m when working with its full 80m main boom and 37m of jib. When lifting with the main boom, it can lift up to 14t at full height and can handle this within a 14m – 28m working radius, offering a flexible range for such applications as tower crane rigging. Overall capacities on the long boom will set a new benchmark for the industry.
The GMK6300L-1 is powered by a 430kW Mercedes Benz (Euromot 4/EPA Tier 4 final) engine in the carrier that features improved fuel economy over its predecessor. This is paired with a reliable Allison torque converter transmission. A 210 kW Mercedes Benz (Euromot 4/EPA Tier 4 final) engine powers the superstructure.
