UK access platform and lifting specialist Hird Group has added a 100 tonne capacity Grove GMK4100L all terrain crane to its fleet.

The GMK4100L is the long-boom version of the Grove GMK4100 four-axle all terrain crane. It has a 60 metre boom and can lift 1.6 tonnes at a 48 metre radius. It has a 10.7 m long carrier, all-wheel steering and Megatrak suspension.

Philip Hird, Hird managing director, said, “We’ve been impressed with other existing Grove cranes in our fleet and we are happy with our most recent purchase of the GMK4100L. Its long boom and highly versatile capabilities make it ideal for congested job sites in the UK and the crane will be used at many sites around the country.”

The model is due to be delivered at its headquarters in Hull at the end of August.
