Aug. 14, 2015

The five-axle Grove GMK5180-1 and GMK5200-1 all-terrain cranes offer several boom and jib combinations. The cranes have a 210-foot main boom that can be extended with two 26-foot inserts and a 56-foot swing-away jib with 40-degree offset. The 180-ton-capacity GMK5180-1 has a maximum counterweight of 50 tons, and the 200-ton-capacity GMK5200-1 has a maximum counterweigh of 70 tons.

The cranes have a VIAB turbo retarder clutch, which eliminates both fluid overheating and clutch burning, while enabling wear-free starting and braking, according to Grove. A Tier 4-Final Mercedes-Benz OM471LA engine delivers 520 horsepower and maximum torque of 1,814 lb.-ft. The engine drives the carrier and powers the superstructure. The cranes have Grove’s patented Megatrak independent suspension as well as the all-wheel steer system.
