May 24 - UK based crane hire and contract lifting provider Dewsbury & Proud has purchased three Grove GMK3060 cranes.

The 60-tonne capacity Grove cranes will work on a variety of jobs across the UK including house building projects, concrete installation and steel industry operations.

"The Grove GMK3060 is an ideal machine for our company because it can be used for a range of applications," said Dewsbury & Proud managing director Tim Proud.

"Plus the fact that it's a highly robust and versatile crane with all-wheel steering capabilities and that it comes equipped with an impressive 43 m main boom and 15 m luffing jib, made the GMK3060 an obvious choice for us."

The GMK3060 combines a six-section Megaform boom that features the new boom configuration mode, which feature automatically selects the optimal boom configuration for a lift once the operator has entered the basic lift parameters.
