Canadian/US heavy lifting and transportation company Irving Equipment has taken delivery of a 100 tonne Grove TMS9000-2 truck-mounted and a 250 tonne GMK5250L All Terrain crane.
The four axle TMS9000-2 truck mounted crane boasts a 51.6 metre six section main boom as well as a bi-fold swingaway and additional inserts. The five axle GMK5250L is equipped with a 70 metre main boom and a 21 metre bi-fold swingaway extension that can be extended with additional inserts to 37 metres for a maximum tip height of 110 metres.
Victor Murty, Irving operations manager, said: “Now we have even more lifting options. This will help us compete for and win jobs we couldn’t have previously. The TMS9000-2 has an automatic truck transmission, which enables us to report about its fuel usage in comparison with our other machines. The GMK5250L is a one-engine crane and employs the MAXbase multiple position outrigger system. With one engine we cut down on maintenance, and the MAXbase technology enables us to better position the crane around job sites.”
Operating across North America's Atlantic coast region, New Brunswick-based Irving runs a fleet of more than 115 All Terrain, Truck and Crawler cranes - topped by a 750 tonne Liebherr LR1750 - as well as pick & carry and Rough Terrain cranes.
