News Release

New GMK4100L added to Hird Group crane fleet

7/13/2015

Hird Group, a leading UK access platform and lifting specialist, has added another Grove crane to its fleet. The company has recently purchased a 100 t capacity Grove GMK4100L all-terrain crane, which will be delivered and installed at its headquarters in Hull at the end of August. 

The four-axle crane was presented by Manitowoc at this year’s Vertikal Days trade show, where the purchase was finalized.

 “We’ve been impressed with other existing Grove cranes in our fleet and we are happy with our most recent purchase of the GMK4100L,” said Philip Hird, managing director for Hird. “Its long boom and highly versatile capabilities make it ideal for congested job sites in the UK and the crane will be used at many sites around the country.”

The GMK4100L is the long-boom version of the popular GMK4100 four-axle all-terrain crane. Featuring a 60 m boom, the Grove crane can lift an impressive 1.6 t at a 48 m radius. At just 10.7 m long, the crane’s carrier, which includes all-wheel steering and Megatrak suspension, is compact and highly maneuverable.
