One of Italy’s premier lifting companies, Vernazza Autogru (Vernazza) has added two new Grove all-terrain cranes, a GMK5250L and a GMK6400. The company has purchased the two cranes to increase its return on investment, choosing two models that are extremely flexible and have features that can increase efficiency.
Diego Vernazza, a legal representative of Vernazza, said the company was especially impressed with features of the cranes that could save it time and money, as well as provide versatility for a variety of applications. For the 400 t GMK6400, Vernazza was impressed with the crane’s MegaDrive hydrostatic drive and self-rigging MegaWingLift attachment. For the 250 t GMK5250L, the company was looking forward to saving on operating costs, thanks to its innovative VIAB turbo clutch, which offers several benefits, including wear-free starting and braking, and reduced fuel consumption.
“We already have several Grove cranes in our fleet, and over time we have seen that they provide a great return on investment, especially when we use them intensely,” Vernazza explained. “We are especially pleased with the great after sales service that Manitowoc provides, so buying additional Grove all-terrain cranes was a logical choice.”
