Grove showcases industry-leading cranes at GIS 2017

At the sixth edition of the Italian Cranes and Access and Heavy Transport Show (GIS) 2017 in Piacenza, Italy, Manitowoc Cranes displayed a few of its industry-leading all-terrain cranes, the Grove GMK4100L-1 and GMK5150, which feature new taxi configurations for more efficient road travel.

Visitors to Manitowoc’s booth also had the chance to learn more about the company’s new MAXbase outrigger technology, which enables cranes to be set up on various types of outrigger bases, providing the cranes with more flexibility during erection and increased capacities during operations.

Davide Camperi, Sales Manager for Manitowoc mobile cranes in Italy, said that the event was a great opportunity for Manitowoc to not only showcase its cranes, but also for the company to connect with its customers, learn about their needs and help them earn a higher return on investment.

The 100 t capacity, four-axle taxi Grove GMK4100L-1 all-terrain crane features a 60 m boom, the best load charts in its class and a narrow, 2.55 m-minimum width. Its compact design makes it easy to manoeuvre on the narrowest of job sites. The new single-engine concept on the GMK4100L-1, with the latest EUROMOT 4/Tier 4 Final engine, reduces fuel consumption to a minimum. Using ECO mode, the GMK4100L-1 is the most fuel efficient crane in its class.

The five-axle GMK5150 has a 150 t capacity, making it the leader in its class. It features a 51 m boom with a maximum counterweight of 45 t. The crane is also powered by a single engine, reducing the overall weight and allowing it to carry more counterweight.
