Dutch heavy-duty logistics company Mammoet has purchased five new Grove GMK4090 all terrain cranes from the Manitowoc factory in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. The GMK4090 was launched in Q3 2017 and Mammoet has purchased some of the first cranes to come off the production line.
The GMK4090 was developed as the successor to the GMK4080-1. According to Mammoet, it has a best-in-class taxi load chart and compact footprint, which makes it suitable for a variety of applications. Various counterweight options also give it versatility in roading, which can increase efficiency and return on investment, Manitowoc added.
“We purchased the four-axle, all-terrain cranes due to their multifunctionality and one-man operation ability in the 70 tonne to 90 tonne class,” said Wouter van Noort, managing director of Mammoet. “In the Netherlands, nearly all cranes drive with a two-axle trailer so that the full counterweight can be transported on the crane and trailer. These four-axle cranes take away the need for further trailers and do away with additional transportation costs.”
Mammoet received the cranes between April and May 2018.
