Polish crane rental company Petrolift expands fleet with 21 new Grove cranes

  • Petrolift is a long-time user of Grove all-terrain cranes and has now added 21 new Grove cranes for 2024 to expand its product offerings.
  • The company opted for Grove because of its high lifting capacities and proven reliability.
  • A mix of four-, five-, and six-axle Grove cranes will join the company's fleet this year.

Robert Baran Crane Group Petrolift is expanding its crane fleet with a package of 21 new Grove all-terrain cranes as the demand increases for more varied lifting support. Historically, Petrolift is a long-time fan of Grove's popular six-axle, 300 t capacity cranes. The company owns more than 40 300 t all-terrains and was the first customer in Poland to own an extensive fleet of Grove GMK6300L-1 cranes.

"We love the GMK6300L-1," said Robert Baran, founder and CEO of Robert Baran Crane Group Petrolift. "It's extremely reliable and powerful, and a proven best-in-class machine. Now we're at a stage where we need to expand our offerings; it was natural to turn to Grove and we are looking forward to seeing the advantages and versatility of our new models paying off on jobsites across Europe."

The first cranes in the latest order have already been delivered and set to work on several projects, including installing wind turbines and working on petrochemical and chemical plants where their compact dimensions and footprint are highly advantageous.

"It's great to see such a loyal customer expanding its partnership with us. Our product reliability and top-notch customer support have crafted this opportunity, and we look forward to seeing the new Grove cranes at work," said Aaron Ravenscroft, president and CEO of Manitowoc.
