Bauma 2022: Manitowoc to showcase all terrain crane
By Lewis Tyler26 September 2022
Crane manufacturer Manitowoc is premiering its newest addition to its range of all terrain cranes, the GMK6400-1 at Bauma 2022.
The 400 tonne crane, an upgraded version of the GMK6400, has a 60 metre main boom like its predecessor but, according to Manitowoc, also comes with new features that “adds notable new technologies for a stronger overall offering.”
These include increased hydraulic oil flow for faster operation and smoother movements, Crane Control System (CCS) which means performance is “optimised and operation can be boosted to a whole new level.”
The addition of the Maxbase variable outrigger positioning system is also said to increase capacities on the main boom.
A tip height of 136 metres can be reached when the maximum number of jib extensions is used, and it is also compatible with the Mega Wing Lift, which the company said allows for a stronger chart.
It is a self-rigging attachment deployable in less than 20 minutes, the manufacturer claimed. Capacity can be increased by as much as 400 per cent on the luffing jib and by up to 70 % in main-boom only configuration.
Grove cranes will be on stand FS 1202 in the outdoor area south.
