Today, the Grove GMK4100, GMK6300L, GMK6400, GMK5130-2, GMK7450, RT890E, RT9150E, RT9130E mobile cranes, Manitowoc 18000 and 16000 crawler cranes, and the Potain MCT385, IgoT130, MR418 tower cranes are popular in Australia and New Zealand for their fantastic capacities and ability to get projects completed on time and on budget. Some of the biggest names in the region’s industrial sector have Manitowoc cranes in their fleets – including companies such as Boom Logistics, Lampson International, Rio Tinto, Brookfield Multiplex, BHP Billiton, John Holland, Bechtel, Freo Group, Universal Cranes, Pollock Cranes and New Zealand Crane Hire.
