News Release

Seven new Grove cranes for MSG Krandienst

2/7/2017

MSG Krandienst has expanded its fleet with seven Grove all-terrain cranes. The Kehl, Germany-based company added the cranes to increase its flexibility in responding to customer needs. It took delivery of the first six of these cranes—four GMK3060s and two GMK4080-1s—from Manitowoc’s Wilhelmshaven plant. In April, the company will add the seventh, a Grove GMK5150L.

The GMK5150L, which debuted at bauma 2016, is one of Grove’s newest models. With a load capacity of 150 t and a 60 m boom, it is one of the most powerful and versatile five-axle cranes in its class. An extremely transportable crane, the GMK5150L has a total width of 2.75 m, allowing for easy maneuvering on most job sites. It also carries 44.5 t of counterweight, and in its taxi configuration, the crane carries 10.2 t of counterweight.

“The compact dimensions and the counterweight flexibility of the GMK5150L convinced us that it would be an ideal crane for our needs,” explained Alfred Jatz, managing director at the company. "The crane complements our broad range of services and helps us to provide our customers with tailor-made solutions that fit their needs."

MSG Krandienst is a long-standing customer of Manitowoc. It purchased this new batch of cranes from Manitowoc dealer KranAgentur Werner.
