In September and October, customers from all over Europe traveled to Northern Germany to be part of Grove’s all-terrain crane events. Staged at Manitowoc’s Wilhelmshaven facility, guests were treated to factory tours showcasing the latest operational improvements, live demonstrations and presentations of the company’s all-terrain crane range. They also witnessed the launch of two game-changing all-terrain cranes – the Grove GMK5120L and the Grove GMK5150XL.
- At 68.7 m, the Grove GMK5150XL offers a boom length that most 220 t capacity cranes cannot compete with; plus it has stronger load charts than its GMK5150L-1 sibling.
- The GMK5120L, as a new member of the Grove five-axle family, boosts the versatility of taxi cranes to new levels; the 120 t machine offers an exceptional 66 m main boom.
- The Wilhelmshaven events gave most visitors their first ‘real’ look at the GMK6400-1, which had originally been launched using virtual reality at CONEXPO 2020.
- With the introduction of EUROMOT 5, all Grove all-terrain cranes can be operated with HVO diesel that enables CO2 emission reductions of up to 90%, providing greater access to green projects.
The 120 t capacity Grove GMK5120L offers long reach with its extraordinary 66 m main boom. With this versatile all-terrain crane, Grove expands its all-terrain range with another outstanding taxi crane. Customers benefit from greater flexibility and low transportation costs. The all-terrain crane can easily carry a class-leading amount of counterweight – no matter if counterweight configurations for 10 t, 12 t or 16.5 t per axle are required.
With compact dimensions of just 14.195 m overall length and 2.75 m width, the GMK5120L offers superb access to jobsites, complemented with great maneuverability resulting from Grove’s MEGATRAK independent suspension.
