Manitowoc has launched its biggest Grove Hydraulic Crawler crane, which features improved load capacities, in North America.
The crane also includes a 52.1 metres six-section and a pinned boom with maximum capacity of 127 tonnes.
When configured with the 15 metres offsettable bi-fold swingaway, it has a maximum tip height of 70 metres.
It is able to pick and carry at 100 per cent of its load chart on inclinations up to four degrees and can swing loads a full 360 degrees.
The crane has been designed to work well with applications in utility work, alternative energy applications, tunnel construction, barge work and storage tank construction.

A pin telescoping boom will allow operators to handle a variety of lifts at various radii and enables them to reach greater heights than previous GHC.
The GHC140’s crawler tracks have a 57 per cent gradeability track rating, with an undercarriage driven by two-speed hydrostatic drive motors.
It can also be transported to a job site in four loads, with attention to ease of assembly included within the design.
In cab amenities include an air suspension heated seat, a climate control system, a 178 millimetres screen for viewing the host, rear and rightside camera feeds, and electronic load-sensing joystick controls.
The crane can be outfitted with either a 173 horsepower Cummins QSB 4.5 L Tier 4 Final engine, or a 160 horsepower Tier 3 model.
“The Grove GHC line has grown in popularity over the years due to its reliability on the job site and best-in-class features,” Manitowoc’s product manager for GHC cranes JJ Grace said.
“This latest model stems from discussions with customers who liked using our telescopic crawler cranes but needed improved load charts.”
