KAS Crane Hire Working with the First Grove GMK3060L-1 in the UK

The Barnstable, North Devon, based mobile crane rental company KAS Crane Hire took delivery of the UK’s first GMK3060L-1 all-terrain crane with the next generation of Grove carrier cab in June 2021. The family-run firm has been supplying reliable, modern cranes; ancillary equipment; and skilled operators in the southwest of England since 1983 and has recently renewed its fleet.

KAS offers its customers a choice of five cranes, ranging from 40 to 100 t in capacity. The largest among them is the four-axle 100 t capacity Grove GMK4100L-1 all-terrain crane, which joined the fleet in 2019. Its latest addition, the three-axle 60 t capacity Grove GMK3060L-1 replaced an old GMK3055 in the same class.

The company chose Grove based on its previous good experiences with the brand – in particular, the strength and quality of the cranes, as well as the speed and convenience of the aftermarket support.

“We purchased the GMK3060L-1 on the back of our GMK4100L-1, which has been a very busy crane for us. The quality of the cranes is superb, and we’ve had such a great experience with Grove, we decided to go with them again,” said Andrew Smith, director of KAS.

As well as meeting the latest European crash test regulations according to ECE R29-3, the next generation Grove carrier cab has been designed with comfort and productivity in mind. All controls have been ergonomically arranged and are easy to reach so that the operator feels fresh and relaxed while driving from one jobsite to the next.
