Manitowoc to show new all terrain crane in UK

By Niamh Marriott08 September 2021

Manitowoc will show its new 150 tonne capacity GMK5150L-1 all terrain crane with 60 metre main boom at the Vertikal Days 2021 event, on 22 and 23 September at the East of England Showground in Peterborough, UK.

The company will display the crane loaned from Steve Foster Cranes.

“The Grove GMK5150L-1 is a particularly impressive crane because of the large amount of counterweight it can carry on the road,” said Kim Dandridge, managing director at Manitowoc UK.

“The machine has a roadable counterweight of 30.9 tonnes, which enables some strong lifts while keeping within the 16.5 tonnes per axle limit. 

“Customers will have the chance to explore the 150 tonne Grove all-terrain crane’s new modern carrier cab, which offers increased space as well as added comfort for operators.”

Potain on display

From the Potain brand, Manitowoc will exhibit a Hup 40-30 self erecting crane, courtesy of City Lifting. This crane offers a 4 tonne maximum load, 1 tonne load at a 40 metre radius and nine flexible jib configurations with several height modes.

“The Potain Hup 40-30 takes up very little space on the ground, is clean, quiet and has low power requirements. This makes it a convenient alternative on jobsites to telescopic forklifts, which can churn up the ground and have stability issues, punctures and fuel leakages,” Dandridge said.

“It also offers great capacity up and over buildings and has the added bonus of being remote controlled.” 

Aftermarket solutions

In addition to these models, Manitowoc is keen to highlight its aftermarket solutions and financing offer in partnership with DLL (De Lage Landen Leasing) for Grove mobile cranes and BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions for Potain tower cranes.

“Our aftermarket services can help customers get the most value from their cranes, while our finance offer can make the whole process of purchasing equipment much smoother as our financing partners understand our customers’ needs and the value of the equipment down the line,” said Dandridge.
