Kran-Mitterhauser gets Grove

June 28 - Austrian crane rental company Kran-Mitterhauser has invested in a six-axle, 300-tonne capacity Grove GMK6300L crane with an 80 m main boom.

Since the purchase, the crane has been working at a number of sites across Austria, and will be employed mainly for lifting and positioning precast concrete components, assembling tower cranes, and undertaking repair work at industrial facilities.

The Grove GMK6300L has a 80 m seven-section main boom, designed for heavy lifting without the need to rig the jib, which the manufacturer claims ensures trouble-free rigging and short setup times.

"The long boom enables us to complete many jobs for our customers on very competitive terms since we do not have to spend time and money mounting jibs and swingaways," agreed Kran-Mitterhauser general manager Hedwig Rothböck.

The crane model also features Megatrak independent suspension, as well as four double hydraulically telescoping outrigger beams with vertical cylinders and outrigger pads.
