Grove rough terrains launch at Bauma
By Sarah Ann McCay24 January 2013
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.
