GMK4090 Debuts At Crane Days 2018 (18-06-2018)
Visitors to Manitowoc’s Crane Days 2018 event are the first in North America to see the new, best-in-class Grove GMK4090 all-terrain crane. It’s one of several cranes debuting at the Crane Days event, which highlights the innovation and velocity that comes with following The Manitowoc Way, and has resulted in several new crane models for 2018.
The new GMK4090 taxi crane features a modern, compact design that puts an emphasis on roadability and maneuverability. Manitowoc designed the crane using extensive Voice of Customer (VOC) research, which revealed demand for a lightweight, flexible taxi crane in the 90 t (100 USt) capacity class.
“The GMK4090 has been designed with flexibility and maneuverability as main focuses in accordance with our customers’ needs,” said Andreas Cremer, global product director of Grove all-terrain cranes. “With its best-in-class taxi load chart and compact footprint, this crane will be ideal for a variety of applications. Various counterweight options also give it versatility in roading, which can increase efficiency and return on investment for many owners.”
The GMK4090 offers a 51 m (167 ft), six-section MEGAFORM boom that utilizes Grove’s TWIN-LOCK pinning system. Boosting its overall reach is a 15 m (49 ft) bi-fold swing-away jib that can be extended with a 6 m (20 ft) boom extension for a total jib length of 21 m (69 ft). It can travel with a maximum 18.3 t (20.2 USt) counterweight, and within 12 t (13 USt) per axle, it can transport up to 9.1 t (10 USt) to the job site without the need for an additional transport truck. This feature enables high capacity while keeping transport costs low. Also, the distance between the front and rear axle groups was extended beyond the 2.4 m (8 ft) minimum requirement for U.S. bridge laws. This simplifies roading permits, making the Grove GMK4090 the ideal taxi crane.
The crane features compact dimensions, with a narrow width of 2.55 m (8.4 ft), so it can easily access and maneuver within the tightest of job sites. It has a minimum tail swing of only 3.5 m (11.6 ft), so it stays within the maximum outrigger width, unlike other cranes in this segment that require extended tail-swing clearance. The GMK4090 also offers the new MAXbase feature as an option—this variable outrigger setting gives the crane more setup flexibility on the job site, especially when erecting it on irregular job site grounds. MAXbase also offers greater capacity when compared with the 360° standard load chart.
The GMK4090 features Manitowoc’s Crane Control System (CCS), an easy-to-use operating interface that has now been standardized across the company’s crane offerings and is featured on every new model.
“When considering a new addition to our popular taxi crane line, we had to ensure that the GMK4090 would be extremely versatile in travel, set up and lifting options,” Cremer explained. “This is The Manitowoc Way in action, and the result is a new crane that should help crane owners increase efficiency and utilization in their fleets.”
North American customers looking to expand their taxi fleets now have more options than ever, with three innovation-packed GMK models to choose from. Manitowoc is also showing the 150 t (175 USt) GMK5150L and the 250 t (300 USt) GMK5250L at Crane Days to reinforce the point. Much like the GMK4090, these all-terrain cranes were brought to market with the velocity put forth by The Manitowoc Way.
CTE Has Launched 25 Metre Truck Mounted Platform (16-06-2018)
Italian aerial lift manufacturer CTE has launched the 25 metre Zed 25 HV truck mounted platform.
Mounted on a 3.5 tonne chassis, the articulated Zed 25 HV provides 12 metres of outreach with 100kg in the platform, while the maximum platform capacity of 250kg is available up to seven metres over the side and slightly less over the rear. The lift mechanism, with dual sigma type riser and three section telescopic boom, now uses high strength SSAB steel to save weight, while slew is 320 degrees in either direction and platform rotation a full 180 degrees.
The new platform has variable outrigger set up with automatic extension and pressure sensing, including CTE's S3 Smart Stability System, which automatically adapts the working envelope to suit the actual outrigger configuration selected. Controls are all fully proportional ramped start and stop for smooth operation, while a diagnostic screen at the controls, includes an active working envelope display.

Liebherr has announced two all new cranes, a 230 tonne, long boomed LTM1230-5.1 All Terrain and a new 800 tonne LR1800-1.0 lattice crawler crane.
The new five axle 230 tonne LTM 1230-5.1 boasts a 75 metre main boom – three metres longer than its predecessor, the 200 tonne LTM 1200-5.1 lift as well as a longer boom, average lift capacities are said to be 20 percent better, partly due to the fact that it incorporates the VarioBallast system, first seen on the LTM 1450-8.1.

Extra height can be achieved with an 11.5 to 22 metre bi-fold swingaway with up to 40 degrees of offset, with a hydraulic luffing option. Additional reach is available by inserting up to three seven metre straight lattice sections between boom nose and swingaway, although the maximum tip height is no more than 115 metres.
A fixed offset 43 metre jib is also available that can incorporate a hydraulic luffing section to create a type of luffing jib with up to 45 degrees of offset. The attachments can also be configured to produce a high capacity 39 metre fixed jib.
The crane uses Liebherr’s single engine concept with a six cylinder chassis mounted engine driving a 12 speed ZF Traxon transmission and the superstructure pumps by a mechanical shaft system through the centre of the slew ring. Additional features include EcoMode and EcoDrive to maximise fuel efficiency, while reducing noise and emissions.

The LTM 1230-5.1 is unusual in that it has an asymmetric outrigger base, with a front spread of 7.4 metres, and a rear spread of 8.1 metres. The wider rear base is said to provide additional capacity over the rear quadrant. It is also equipped with Liebherr’s Variobase outrigger set up system.
The new crane was unveiled a couple of hours ago at the company’s bi-annual Customer Days. As is customary now the company displayed an example of its advanced rigging skills using its lift planning software. This year it constructed a spider’s web between two lattice cranes, with one of its new Rough Terrain cranes stuck in the middle.
Rigging demo par excellence - a Liebherr LRT stuck in the spider's web
It also demonstrated a driverless LTC 1050-3.1 city type All Terrain crane. Quite what use this is unless it can also operate the crane as well was not mentioned - perhaps it could be used for bare lease rentals? The main point was to demonstrate how the company is keeping on top of new technology in order to be ready to exploit any that can improve crane efficiency etc…

The second new crane to be unveiled was the 800 tonne LR 1800-1.0, which also introduces a new nomenclature system, with the -1 being the first 800 tonner, and the .0 being the first generation. An upgrade would be a 1.1 while a totally new 800 tonner would be a 2.0.

The new crane which adds to the company’s sub 1,000 tonne product line, has a standard maximum reach of an 84 metre boom and 84 metre luffing jib, but can also be configured with a main boom of up to 102 metres, while the luffing jib can also be extended to 102 metres. The boom and jib use three different sizes of lattice section, the bottom half of the main boom uses the largest sections, with the medium sections used for the top half of the boom and the bottom half of the jib, finally the small sections are used for the top of the jib. They can be telescoped inside each other for more efficient transport.
Here come the tracks
The widest component has an overall width of just three metres, and the heaviest is 45 tonnes. The machine base with tracks in place is said to weigh 60 tonnes, but only 45 tonnes with tracks removed.
On goes the counterweight and the boom....
Maximum counterweight comprises of 230 tonnes on the superstructure, 70 tonnes on the chassis/carbody and 400 tonnes of derrick ballast. A new folding frame guides the suspended ballast and is variable up to a 23 metre radius. Power comes from a V8 Stage V diesel.
