Grove’s GHC110 is a new 110 US ton (100 tonne) capacity telescopic boom crawler crane for the Americas.

Manufacturer Manitowoc said it outperforms its closest competitors across all load charts.

The new model sits in the range below the 140 US ton (127 tonne) capacity GHC140 launched last year. “It’s like a tough younger brother for the GHC140, our biggest model that was revealed in 2020,” said JJ Grace, Manitowoc product manager for GHC cranes. “It’s a perfect fit for contractors who need stout load charts and high manoeuvrability.”

It has a five-section, 153.4 foot (47 metre) boom, giving a maximum tip height of 162 feet (49 metres). That is increased to 212 feet with the addition of the standard 49.2 foot (15 metre) bifold offsettable swingaway jib.

Power is from a 249 hp, 6.7 litre Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 Final diesel engine driving a variable displacement load sensing piston pump giving power for all the main functions.

It has 100 percent pick-and-carry capability throughout its standard 0.6, 1.5 and 4 degree out of level load charts. Tracks as standard are 36 inch wide with triple bar grouser shoes.

The crawler frames can be hydraulically adjusted to three width positions and asymmetrically too.

“Depending on loading preference, the GHC110 can be transported to the jobsite in four or five loads, and then you can use a handheld wireless remote to control much of the assembly,” Grace explained, “Frame-mounted jacks allow for easy installation of the tracks, and the counterweights are hydraulically installed.”

Maximum line pull on the main and auxiliary winches is 19,404 pounds (8.8 tonnes).

A personnel basket attachment with radio remote control is available as an option.
