Grove presents two new five-axle all-terrain cranes at customer events in Wilhelmshaven

  • 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.

In September and October, customers from all over Europe travelled 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.
