Australian rental firm Metcalf Crane Services has added a Grove GMK3055 all terrain crane to its fleet of Manitowocs.

Owner Tim Metcalf said he added the 55 tonner to serve smaller capacity projects. The three-axle GMK3055 also has an overall vehicle length of just 10.9 m, which helps suit it to smaller job sites.

The GMK3055 complements other Grove cranes in the Metcalf fleet, which includes the 130 tonne capacity GMK5130-1 and GMK5130-2, a 100 tonne capacity GMK4100 and a 220 tonne capacity GMK5220.

Metcalf Cranes handle projects Australia-wide, with recent jobs including working on roads, bridges, high rises and other general construction work. Its cranes have also been used on energy, tunnelling, building services, steelwork and other projects.
