Chilean rental company MPM Rental has taken delivery of three 120 tonne Grove RT9130E-2 Rough Terrain cranes.
The two axle RT9130E features a five section 48.7 metre main boom and an 11 to 18 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, which offsets by up to 40 degrees, while two additional eight metre inserts provide a maximum tip height of 85 metres. They will be predominately used to support the country's mining industry.
MPM equipment manager Felipe Melo, said: “We are a fan of the crane’s impressive 120 tonne capacity and reach, and its bi-fold extension provides additional reach and versatility to get more jobs done. We also like the easy to understand manual, which is very helpful.”
Established in 2008, MPM provides lifting equipment to the mining industry from its locations in Santiago and Antofagasta, Chile’s mining capital. It also offers a wide range of passenger and haulage vehicles alongside general construction and auxiliary equipment.
