Davis Motor Crane Service celebrates purchase of Grove TMS9000-2 at CONEXPO 2017
9 March 2017
Only minutes after the new Grove TMS9000-2 truck crane was unveiled at CONEXPO 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, one of Manitowoc Cranes’ most long-standing customers celebrated a purchase of the breakthrough model. Davis Motor Crane Service joined Manitowoc CEO Barry Pennypacker for a champagne toast to commemorate the occasion. The company was also presented with a celebratory plaque and a pair of customized, Manitowoc-themed hard harts, both of which were hand painted.
The 100 t (115 USt) TMS9000-2 truck crane features a number of improvements over previous models that will enable owners to increase their utilization and lifting capabilities. It’s lighter, which increases roadability and helps customers meet North American gross vehicle weight requirements. It has a longer boom, which increases reach and enables lifters to complete a wider variety of applications. And the crane is stronger, with best-in-class load charts for all counterweight configurations.
Irving, Texas-based Davis Motor Crane Service has been in business since 1962, and has several locations across the state. Its fleet of cranes measures well into the hundreds and the company has performed a number of high-profile projects over the years.
