An updated, longer boomed 60 tonne Grove GMK3060 All Terrain crane, the GMK3060L, will be unveiled at Bauma in April.
The three axle GMK3060L will feature a 48 metre six section main boom, five metres longer than its predecessor, and an 8.7 to 15 metre bi-fold swingaway extension. The load charts are also said to have been improved significantly in a number of areas. The company claims that new model will have the most compact dimensions of any three axle All Terrain crane – and that, like the current model it will be up to a metre shorter than other three axle models – allowing it to fit and manoeuvre in tighter work areas, such as city centres sites and indoor work. Overall carrier length is 8.68 metres, overall width 2.55 metres and overall height with the suspension fully lowered, 3.48 metres. The Manitowoc group’s Crane Control System (CCS) is standard, while the MAXbase variable outrigger set up system is available as an option.
The Grove GMK3060L will be launched at Bauma in Munich, Germany
The GMK3060L is powered by a Cummins six cylinder diesel and will be available in both Tier 4 Final/Euromot V and Tier 3/Euromot III variants to cater for all markets.
Global product director for All Terrain cranes Andreas Cremer said: “We launched the GMK3060 at Bauma 2013, and it has been a great success for us. The new GMK3060L takes that crane and makes it even better by providing a longer boom, stronger load charts, fast operating speeds and a powerful yet more environmentally friendly engine.”
