Grove sells first GMK7450 in the UK

Bryn Thomas crane hire of Flint in north east Wales, has become the first UK customer for the GMK7450, Grove’s seven axle, 450 tonne All Terrain crane. The unit was handed over by Ross Wilson, Grove regional sales manager and Steve Barnett Managing Director of Manitowoc UK at the products launch to Bryn Thomas customers at a recent open day in Flint.

The unit has been supplied complete with the Mega Wing Lift boom support system, and 73 metre luffing jib providing a total tip height of 126 metres.

. “We now provide a truly nationwide service, and with new heavy-lifters like the 450t Grove, we have been able to extend our client base with some important long-term contracts, for instance with Rail-Track,” said Operations Director Janus Thomas

“One of the main attractions of the GMK7450 is that it has excellent lifting duties throughout its range, and most importantly, it can travel with the complete-assembled boom in place on the carrier, which makes it more efficient and faster to set-up than other cranes in the 400-500t class. This gives us a distinct competitive advantage where time and efficiency are paramount.” He continued.
