Grove is refreshing its line of carry-deck cranes, rolling out a new generation of machines that comply with North American Tier 4 Final emission standards.
“These new models set the standard for carry-deck cranes moving forward,” said Justin Pilgrim, Manitowoc’s global product director for boom trucks and carry-deck cranes. “They have the latest emissions systems for cleaner operation and will offer many improvements aimed at increasing our customers’ bottom line.”
Model numbers of the new carry-deck cranes begin with GCD, reflecting Grove carry-deck. A following number represents crane's capacity U.S. tons.
Grove's first new Tier-4-compliant carry-deck crane is the GCD25, available now in North America. It features a Cummins QSB4.5L Tier 4 Final engine.
The 25 USt capacity GCD25 features a best-in-class, four-section 71-ft. telescopic boom. A 17-ft. lattice jib is optional, and the boom-and-jib combination gives a maximum tip height of 95 ft. The boom's four-position pivoting head allows working with low overhead head clearance.
The GCD25 features four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering capability, and its 45,465-lb. weight makes it easy to transport.
The out-and-down outriggers can be set up in several configurations to meet jobsite requirements.
“Throughout the remainder of 2016 and early 2017, we will be launching new carry-deck cranes for each class that we offer these cranes in,” Pilgrim said. “This new generation of cranes, with their best-in-class features, modern efficient hydraulics, and simple operation will not only help customers improve their return on investment, they will leave a much lighter footprint on the environment.”
