Manitowoc has revealed three new Grove all-terrain cranes at bauma 2019.
The company have launched a new unit in the five-axle category and two new three-axle models at the show.
One of the units, the GMK5250XL-1, has a 78.5 metre boom, as well as Megatrak suspension and a twin-lock boom pinning system.
Options for the crane include the VIAB turbo retarder clutch, which enables wear-free starting and breaking to enhance manoeuvrability and operator comfort.
Additionally, it has been designed to fit a compact footprint, allowing it to be used in crowded or urban areas.
- Manitowoc continues Grove legacy
- Unique crane used on $500M Ritz-Carlton hotel construction
- Integrated heavy-duty jib used on Level Crossing Removal Project
The GMK3060L is part of the company’s three-axle offering and includes a seven-section boom with 48 metres of main boom and a maximum tip height of 65 metres when working with its full jib.
The 60 tonne crane features Manitowoc’s Crane Control System with boom configurator or an efficient set up.
It has been designed to be compact, to help it reach tight locations in urban areas as well.
The company has also unveiled an update of Grove’s GMK3050-1, called the GMK3050-2. It offers a 40-metre main boom, fast operating speeds and a single counterweight configuration for ease of use. Its engine has been updated to meet the latest requirements of Euromot 5.
“We believe in developing cranes our customers can use in a wider variety of projects for better return on investment,” Manitowoc all-terrain cranes global product director Andreas Cremer said.
“The GMK5250XL-1 is a great example of how we do that. It’s an update to our existing GMK5250L but we’ve added 8.5 m of boom for more reach, so it can take on more jobs.
“At the same time we’ve maintained the class-leading lift performance, manoeuvrability and fast set-up of the GMK5250L which make it such a popular choice with our customers.”
