Manitowoc delivers to Merkel

June 12 - Merkel Autokrane has purchased a new Grove GMK5250L all-terrain crane from Manitowoc.

Manitowoc claims that the 250-tonne capacity GMK5250L offers the strongest reach and load chart of any five-axle crane, and is the first mobile crane to feature a VIAB turbo clutch and integrated retarder.

The Grove crane also offers excellent roadability with its below 12-tonnes per axle configuration, which leaves room for additional equipment that can be added later, said the crane manufacturer.

The GMK5250L is powered by a single engine - a concept pioneered by Grove on its GMK6400 model. Manitowoc says that a single engine means lower fuel consumption during operation, reduced overall weight and less maintenance, meaning the crane is far more economical. The GMK5250L claims to offer fuel savings of up to 30 percent compared with its predecessor, the GMK5220.
