Manitowoc welcomed more than 25 guests to a customer event at its factory in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, to present its new and existing Grove range. The visitors had an opportunity to see an array of Grove cranes that feature innovative technologies and industry-leading capabilities, including the GMK3060, GMK4100L-1, GMK5150 and the GMK5150L that feature new taxi configurations for more efficient road travel.
When working in their taxi configuration, Grove cranes can go from job site to job site with no need of trailer, saving considerable setup time and costs. These cranes stand out due to an ideal combination of compact design and impressive roadable counterweight.
Guests also took a factory tour that showcased the company’s production and testing capabilities. Many of them had hands-on time with the cranes to explore their features. The MegaDrive hydrostatic drive and self-rigging MegaWingLift attachment, for example, were both put through their paces by attendees. After the tour, visitors gathered close to the facility’s test pad for a working demonstration of a GMK6400.
