Grove sells 11 all terrain cranes
By Niamh Marriott25 January 2022
Dutch family-owned rental company Van Schaften Leasing has purchased 11 Grove all terrain cranes.
The multi-crane deal consists of one GMK5150L-1, eight GMK5250XL-1 and two GMK6300L-1 all-terrain cranes.
The first three deliveries, one GMK5150L-1, one GMK5250XL-1 and one GMK6300L-1, arrived in late 2021.
The other cranes are to come subsequently and will work on jobsites all over the world.
The company, based in Schiedam, near Rotterdam in the Netherlands, manages a large fleet of cranes with capacities ranging from 30 to 1,600 tonnes. It rents its mobile cranes worldwide for short and long-term projects.
The Grove GMK5150L-1 is a 150 tonne capacity all terrain crane and features Grove’s new carrier cab. The company says it offers comfort for the operator and can lift up to 11.8 tonnes on the 60 metre main boom.
The machine has a maximum counterweight of 44.5 tonnes and can travel with 10.2 tonnes of counterweight within a 12 tonne per axle configuration.
The Grove GMK5250XL-1 is a five-axle, 250 tonne capacity all-terrain crane with a 78.5 metre main boom. It can lift loads of up to 9.9 tonnes within a radius of up to 22 metres. The company says it can complete many jobs without an additional jib, saving time on the jobsite and reducing logistics costs.
The Grove GMK6300L-1 has a 300 tonne capacity. With a 14 tonne capacity on the 80 metre main boom, the crane can reach out to 28 metres.
Van Schaften Leasing is familiar with this model in particular as the company already rents several of these crane models, as well as its predecessor, the GMK6300L, to various customers.
The auxiliary hoist and counterweight slabs of the 300 and 250 tonne cranes are interchangeable, which the company says, results in benefits for a company’s logistics.
The new Grove cranes will be Euromot 5 compliant, a new standard which will see limitations on the amount of harmful substances in exhaust gases.
