All 300 tonne AT tops Grove orders
By Euan Youdale31 January 2011
USA-based rental giant All has strengthened its all terrain fleet with the addition of a 300 tonne capacity Grove GMK6300L all terrain.
The crane is in the livery of Central Contractor Services, a member of the ALL Family of Companies, and will be shown at Manitowoc's ConExpo 2011 booth in Las Vegas in March.
The GMK6300L is one of a multiple Grove order that also includes the 550 US ton (450 tonne) GMK7550, Manitowoc's largest all terrain, which will work in the Gulf region.
A Grove GMK6250-L all terrain is also included in the order, as well as a Manitowoc 2250 lattice boom crawler crane, two Manitowoc Model 16000 crawlers with luffing jibs, a Model 16000 wind attachment and a Manitowoc 18000 Max-Er attachment.
The seven-section, 51 to 263 foot (15.5 to 80 m) full power main boom is designed for strong lifts without the need to rig the jib, according to All. There are five available outrigger positions, more than any other crane in this capacity class, according to All, providing greater flexibility.
"This new 6300 is an exciting addition to our AT fleet. The long boom is really what makes this crane special - in this case, size really does matter," said Michael Liptak, ALL Family of Companies president.
