The All Family of Companies in the USA will begin taking delivery of six brand new rough terrain cranes ordered from Grove. The company has purchased among the first of the new Grove GRT8120s to roll off the assembly line.

“For industrial work at refineries and processing plants, and in the precast and steel erection of urban construction, the GRT8120 will get where other cranes can’t and will deliver the reach and lift that these applications demand,” said Chad Rados, project co-ordinator at All.

These 120 US ton (109 tonne) capacity RTs bring a number of innovations to their weight class, including a redesigned carrier identical in size to a smaller 100 ton capacity RT, manufacturer Manitowoc said. It can be delivered in two truckloads, the company said. With its pinned 197 foot boom, the crane has a smaller footprint and a capacity that, in certain instances, can rival that of a 130 ton crane, Manitowoc claimed.

Another feature is Grove’s Maxbase variable outrigger positioning system. The length-sensing outrigger extension cylinders and automatic levelling system are designed to improve access to congested jobsites and maximises available capacity.

“In the past, perhaps a general contractor would need to perform additional civil engineering or move obstructions,” added Rados. “Now, we can work around those, making the GRT8120 a money- and time-saver as well.”

All ordered these six units earlier in 2020 and will begin taking delivery in the first quarter of 2021. The package comes on the heels of All’s recent purchase of four larger Grove GRT9165 RTs.
