One of Manitowoc’s most premier dealers in the Nordic region showcased one of the most cutting-edge Grove mobile cranes at this year’s MaskinExpo 2017. The equipment trade show occurred May 18–20 in Stockholm, Sweden.
UN Mobilkraner featured the new GMK4100L-1 all-terrain crane at the trade show. The crane was equipped with the K-100 synthetic rope for the event to highlight its innovative design and numerous benefits for users. The Kungälv, Sweden-based company chose to highlight reliable products that can help lifting companies improve operations and boost profitability.
“The MaskinExpo trade show was an excellent opportunity for Manitowoc to connect with its customers and learn about their unique lifting needs,” explained Thorsten Bolender, area sales manager for Manitowoc. “The Manitowoc Way means putting the customer at the center of our business, so we showcased two products that help them increase operational efficiency and earn a higher return on investment.”
The 100 t capacity, four-axle Grove GMK4100L-1 all-terrain crane features a 60 m boom, the best load charts in its class and a narrow, 2.55 m-minimum width. Its compact design makes it easy to access and maneuver on the narrowest of job sites. Boosting the crane’s overall reach is an 18 m telescopic swing-away jib that can be extended with an 8 m boom extension for a total jib length of 26 m. The telescopic swing-away jib offers an improved offset of 0° - 45°.
The K-100 synthetic rope can increase return on investment with its lower maintenance requirements (such as a lack of greasing or lubing), environmental benefits (such as a lack of oil usage) and its ease of handling in reeving. The K-100 also makes it easier for the operator to reeve the rope on the jib and hook blocks.
