News Release

Lambertsson Kran is the world’s first company to pair K-100 synthetic rope with a Grove all-terrain crane

2/6/2017

Sweden’s Lambertsson Kran is taking delivery of two innovative products that are sure to increase efficiency and return on investment for its fleet: a Grove GMK4100L-1 and Samson K-100 synthetic rope. The company will use the crane and K-100 together, which not only marks its first foray into synthetic rope, but also the first time that a company has paired the product with an all-terrain crane globally.

The company chose the 100 t GMK4100L-1 for its compact footprint and reach—it has the best load charts in its class and a narrow 2.55 m width. The “L” denotes it’s the long boom version of the crane, with a reach of 60 m. The crane’s two hoists will each be fitted with K-100. Lambertsson Kran learned of K-100 at an open house sponsored by Scanunit, a Helsingborg-based Samson dealer. The company said it was intrigued by its potential to increase return on investment, namely its  lower maintenance requirements (such as a lack of greasing or lubing), environmental benefits (such as a lack of oil usage) and its ease of handling in reeving.

“The GMK4100L-1 is a compact crane and ideal for lifting jobs in the city, and in factories with tight working quarters,” said Claes Jakobsson, region manager with Lambertsson Kran. “With K-100, we can reduce the weight of the crane and carry more counterweight, which will help us as we primarily use the Grove as a taxi crane performing lifts in the city of Malmö. K-100 will also make it easier for the operator to reeve the rope on the jib and hook blocks.”
