The company currently owns more than 40 All Terrains and was the first company in Poland to own multiple 300 tonne GMK6300L-1’s.
Petrolift chief executive Robert Baran said: “We love the GMK6300L-1. It’s extremely reliable and powerful, and a proven best in class machine. Now we’re at a stage where we need to expand our offerings; it was natural to turn to Grove and we are looking forward to seeing the advantages and versatility of our new models paying off on jobsites across Europe.”

It runs its crane fleet of All Terrains and crawlers up to a 1,200 tonne lattice crawler, from a recently opened facility in Gdańsk, Poland, with further locations in Kraków, Gdynia, Pomorskie, Swinoujscie, Warsaw, Szczecin, Płock and Debica, Poland.
