    Metcalf Crane Services uses innovative integrated heavy-duty jib for Grove GMK5250L on Australian rail project

    Australian rental company Metcalf Crane Services utilized the integrated heavy-duty jib, (known locally as a ‘machinery runner’), on a Grove GMK5250L to handle the delicate unloading and installation of wall panels for a new rail corridor project in Seaford, Victoria. Using the machinery runner from the Grove all-terrain crane, which is integrated into the crane’s swingaway jib, allows the use of both main and auxiliary hoists for the operation of two hooks simultaneously. The design of the machinery runner provides greater distance between the two hooks, making it perfect for applications such as panel installations.

    Grove GMK tandem lift showcases impressive heavy lift at Detroit docks

    JJ Curran (www.jjcurran.com), a Detroit, Michigan-based crane rental and lifting service, was recently called upon to help with a massive lifting job at the city docks. The project involved hoisting a 116.5 USt gas “scrubber,” which was 109 ft long and 19.5 ft in diameter, from a barge docked on the Detroit River to the dock on Zug Island. Once landed on Zug Island, it would be transported to its final destination at the steel mill. The scrubber will be set vertically in position at the mill during a plant-wide shutdown this coming spring. Knowing the details of the lift called for machines with versatility and heavy lifting capacities, JJ Curran deployed their Grove GMK6300L and GMK6400 all-terrain cranes to ensure the job got done with ease. Both machines were purchased from the Riverdale, Illinois-based Manitowoc dealer Walter Payton Power Equipment (WPPE).
