Auto-Klug acquires Grove all-terrain

November 17 - Germany's Auto-Klug has acquired its first Grove GMK4100L-1 all-terrain crane. 



The 100-tonne capacity, four-axle crane features a weight of less than 12 tonnes per axle in its most common taxi configuration and a 60 m main boom.

According to Manitowoc, this particular GMK4100L-1 is the first to arrive in Germany equipped with a K-100 synthetic rope.

"We have been very intrigued by the K-100 synthetic rope and the benefits it offers. It helps us by reducing weight and maintenance efforts, and it also makes it easier for the operator to reeve the rope on the jib and hook blocks," explained Werner Glück, managing partner at Auto-Klug.

Made from a combination of high-performance synthetic fibres, Manitowoc says the K-100 is 80 percent lighter than wire rope.
