Like many others in the industry, like Tamini Rentals’ investment in Grove rough-terrain cranes and MSG Krandienst’s crane fleet expansion, Wiesbauer bought a new addition, the GMK5150L, to expand its fleet of around a dozen Grove cranes – one Decision based on past experience.
Manitowoc’s integration of MAXbase technology allows the crane’s boom base to be adjusted asymmetrically, increasing load capacity and flexibility in limited space. The GMK5150L combines maneuverability with its compact footprint, making it ideal for various projects with height and space difficulties.
“Grove’s great value for money and the high capacity of the GMK5150L convinced us to invest in the 150 tonne Grove crane. As a family company, it is important to us that our crane operators feel comfortable at work. The Grove cabin and the MAXbase system definitely contribute to this, ”said Felix Wiesbauer.
Details of the purchase:
- The first task for the new Grove rough-terrain crane was to relocate a 22-ton fire water tank.
- The second task involved erecting a Potain MDT 178 tower crane from a distance of 18 meters with components weighing up to 10.5 tons.
- The GMK5150L is equipped with a 17.8 meter long, swiveling boom and a 60 meter long MEGAFORM boom with a TWIN-LOCK pinning system.
- The 150 ton Grove crane is ideal for erecting tower cranes, lifting prefabricated elements on roof surfaces, installing air conditioning systems in buildings or placing billboards at great heights.
Wiesbauer acquired the new Manitowoc Grove GMK5150L rough-terrain crane in October as part of a handover ceremony with Florian and Felix Wiesbauer and crane operators Jannik Weigle, Ralf Hoffmann and Samuele Polidori.
