Shri Dinesh buys second 300 tonne Grove in six months
By Chris Sleight08 February 2013
Indian crane rental company Shri Dinesh Cranes Services has bought its second 300 tone capacity Grove GMK6300L in the space of six months. They are the only two such cranes in India according to Grove’s parent company, Manitowoc Cranes.
Speaking at the handover of the crane at the bC India exhibition in Mumbai, Sumit Joshi, Shri Dinesh managing director, said, “It’s the second machine I’ve bought in six months. It’s got a great reach and it’s only the second crane of its type in India.”
Joshi continued, “We’re not targeting specific projects. It is a multi-purpose crane. The turning radius is very good in a tight city like Mumbai and the reach is fantastic.”
Giles Martin, Manitowoc Cranes executive vice president for greater Asia, added, “That’s what we had in mind when we designed it. We wanted to do as much as we could on a six axle carrier because, in a country like India, a seven or eight axle crane is more difficult to drive around.”
The GMK6300L comes with an 80 metre, seven-section telescopic boom and offers a lifting capacity of 300 tonnes.
Shri Dinesh Cranes Services is based in Thane, to the north-west of Mumbai in Maharashtra state. The company was established in 1985 as a business logistics company specialising in warehousing and bulk transportation. In 2005 it began renting cranes to meet customers’ heavy lifting demands. It has 15 all terrain cranes of 110 tonne capacity and above, with the GMK6300L being the largest.
