The first Manitowoc Grove GMK6300L in Italy has been delivered to rental company ADP Sollevamenti.
According to the manufacturer there are already GMK6300L models working in the USA, New Zealand, China, Germany, Switzerland and the UK, following successful field tests over the last year.
"The crane has few limitations and is relatively compact for its size. There is great potential for it in wind farm maintenance, and it is versatile for a range of general rental projects," said Antonio Di Palma, ADP Sollevamenti owner.
The GMK6300L is ideal for rental operations as it is easy to road and quick to set up, added the manufacturer. Typical applications include high-rise buildings, tower crane erection, industrial facilities or wind farm maintenance. Manitowoc's CraneSTAR remote monitoring system is fitted.
The GMK6300L is the only crane among its competitors to offer a fully automatic transmission with torque converter, added the manufacturer. A 37 m jib can extend the 80 m boom to a maximum tip height of 120 m, at which the crane can lift 2.1 tonnes. Alternatively, a heavy-duty jib is available with a capacity of 38 tonnes.
