Grove to launch successor to the popular GMK3060 at bauma 2019

Manitowoc Cranes will launch an upgrade of the three-axle Grove GMK3060 all-terrain crane at bauma 2019 in Munich. The new GMK3060L is based on its predecessor’s design but has a longer boom (48 m/157.5 ft instead of 43 m/141 ft) and offers the strongest taxi load charts in its class.

Like the original, the GMK3060L features the most compact dimensions in the three-axle segment, enabling it to access tight job sites, maneuver easily around city centers, and even work indoors. The chassis is almost as compact as a two-axle model and up to 1-m shorter than competitive three-axle cranes, with a carrier length of only 8.68 m (28.47 ft) and a minimum overall height of 3.48 m (11.41 ft) with the suspension fully lowered. The new model features a longer 48 m (157.5 ft) seven-section TWIN-LOCK hydraulic pinned main boom and boasts significantly stronger load charts.

Andreas Cremer, Manitowoc’s global product director for all terrain cranes, said: “We launched the GMK3060 at bauma 2013, and it has been a great success for us. The new GMK3060L takes that crane and makes it even better by providing a longer boom, stronger load charts, fast operating speeds and a powerful yet more environmentally friendly engine.”

The GMK3060L was developed in accordance with The Manitowoc Way and is a result of Voice of the Customer feedback, a methodology whereby cranes are built in accordance with customers’ needs.
Manitowoc releases free boom configurator app to help quickly determine crane set-up

Manitowoc releases free boom configurator app to help quickly determine crane set-up
Manitowoc Cranes has announced a new smartphone app for iOS and Android devices that will help crane operators and owners to quickly and easily determine the overall boom and jib length combination required for a lift. The Manitowoc Boom Length Selector App allows users to select specific boom and jib length combinations, building heights, boom radii and other crane parameters using an easy sliding scale to determine the basic crane set-up for a specific lift.

“By simply entering a few details, the app immediately generates a set-up for that specific lift. It is a great tool to use during pre-planning or on site to get the job done,” said John Alexander, director of all-terrain crane service, mobile training and telematics at Manitowoc.

Manitowoc is the first manufacturer in the crane industry to release a smartphone app of this kind. The app currently has a five-star rating on Google Play. It is available now for free in both the App Store (Apple) and Google Play Store (Android) by searching for “Manitowoc Boom Length Selector.”

It features Manitowoc’s Crane Control System (CCS), as well as a boom configurator feature. This enables operators to input basic lift parameters, such as load, radius and load height, and the system automatically provides optimal boom options for performing the lift. This saves time at the job site and makes the set-up process much easier. Like all GMK cranes with CCS, the GMK3060L will also feature the MAXbase option for variable outrigger settings and increase load charts in certain working ranges.

The GMK3060L is powered by a Cummins QSL9, a 254 kW (340 hp) six-cylinder in-line diesel engine for reduced fuel consumption. The QSL9 combines high strength with a compact footprint for one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class, and will be available in both Euromot III/Tier 3 and Euromot V/Tier 4 final variants to cater to all markets. The crane will include a ZF TraXon automatic transmission, giving it 12 forward-speed options and two reverse.
