German heavy lift and transport company Hack, used a Grove GMK6400 to carry out a challenging lift at a site in Koblenz.

The GMK6400 lifted a 5 tonne load at a radius of 86 metres onto a 60 m tall building. To carry out the lift, the GMK6400 worked on a narrow tree-lined street. It was configured with 55 m boom, a 79 m luffing jib, 135 tonnes of counterweight and self-rigging MegaWingLift attachment. To prevent damage to the road, the all terrain was rigged in mid-air, a spokesperson said.

Udo Hack, Hack owner, said, “Our new Grove went to work immediately and its first job threw us into the deep end – but it went perfectly and the crane has now completed several other challenging lifts across the region. The GMK6400 is fast to erect, easy to use, and can perform lifts that few other cranes of this size can complete. I am delighted with how busy the crane is.”
