News Release

City Lifting take delivery of Grove GMK6400


London-based crane rental company City Lifting has purchased the first Grove GMK6400 crane in the UK. It’s the company’s second Grove all-terrain crane, joining the GMK6300L that was added to its fleet last year. The six-axle crane will help the company meet increased customer demand for higher capacity cranes. 

The 400 t capacity GMK6400 is currently the strongest mobile crane on six axles. The heavy-duty crane boasts a number of design features allowing it to complete many jobs of a seven-axle crane. This gives advantages in accessing tight spaces on site. 

In addition to innovations such as the Megadrive hydrostatic drive and the single engine design with Fuel Saver option, the crane has an impressive 79 m fly jib for category-leading reach. Despite offering exceptional reach the crane is also relatively compact and offers excellent on-site flexibility with a choice of three available outrigger positions, more than any other crane in this class, giving ultimate flexibility, where space is limited either on site or in narrow streets in the center of London.

The modern design of the Grove model, combined with its powerful 60 m boom and MegaWingLift capacity-enhancing attachment, and fast set-up times, convinced City Lifting that the GMK6400 was a profitable addition to the fleet.  
“We are very pleased to be in possession of the UK’s first Grove GMK6400 and we look forward to using it to provide more efficient and flexible solutions for our clients’ heavy lift projects.” said Trevor Jepson, CEO of City Lifting. “We researched similar machines from other manufacturers, but realized that the GMK6400 was the best and most reliable crane to meet our customers’ requirements.”
