The Kehl, Germany-based MSG Krandienst has expanded its fleet with seven Grove all-terrain cranes. The company took delivery of the first six of these cranes-four GMK3060s and two GMK4080-1s-from Manitowoc´s Wilhelmshaven plant. In April, the company will add the seventh, a Grove GMK5150L.
The GMK5150L, which debuted at bauma 2016, is one of Grove´s newest models. With a load capacity of 150 t and a 60 m boom, it is one of the most powerful and versatile five-axle cranes in its class. An extremely transportable crane, the GMK5150L has a total width of 2.75 m, allowing for easy manoeuvring on most job sites. It also carries 44.5 t of counterweight, and in its taxi configuration, the crane carries 10.2 t of counterweight.
´The compact dimensions and the counterweight flexibility of the GMK5150L convinced us that it would be an ideal crane for our needs,´ explained Alfred Jatz, Managing Director, MSG Krandienst. ´The crane complements our broad range of services and helps us to provide our customers with tailor-made solutions that fit their needs.´
