Grove to launch upgraded GMK3060 at bauma 2019

Manitowoc Cranes will launch an upgrade of the three-axle Grove GMK3060 all-terrain crane at bauma 2019 in Munich. The new GMK3060L is based on its predecessor’s design but has a longer boom (157.5 ft/48 m instead of 141 ft/43 m) and offers the strongest taxi load charts in its class.

Like the original, the GMK3060L features the most compact dimensions in the three-axle segment, enabling it to access tight job sites, maneuver easily around city centres, and even work indoors. The chassis is almost as compact as a two-axle model and up to 1 m shorter than competitive three-axle cranes, with a carrier length of only 28.47 ft/8.68 m and a minimum overall height of 11.41 ft (3.48 m) with the suspension fully lowered. The new model features a longer, 157.5 ft (48 m) seven-section TWIN-LOCK hydraulic pinned main boom and boasts significantly stronger load charts.

Andreas Cremer, Manitowoc’s global product director for all terrain cranes, said, “We launched the GMK3060 at bauma 2013, and it has been a great success for us. The new GMK3060L takes that crane and makes it even better by providing a longer boom, stronger load charts, fast operating speeds and a powerful yet more environmentally friendly engine.”
