Manitowoc will unveil two new Grove rough terrain cranes at Bauma 2013.

The crane manufacturer will use the trade fair to showcase the RT550E and RT770E.

The 45-tonne capacity RT550E has a five section boom of 39 metres – one of the longest in its class. It has the new Grove Crane Control System, which includes a boom optimisation feature that automatically configures boom length to suit specific loads and radii.

The 65 tonne capacity RT770E has a 42 m five-section main boom. It can be fitted with a 10.1 m to 17.1 m bi-fold swingaway that combines with the main boom to 59.1 m and extends working radius to 44 m. Powered by a Cummins 6.7 litre engine, the RT770E has both four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.

Bauma 2013 is in Munich, Germany, from 15 to 21 April.
