Manitowoc Launch Grove TMS800-2 with ‘Big Crane’ Features
The TMS800-2 brings the latest truck crane technologies from Grove to the 80 USt (70t) size class. The new lightweight carrier design capably roads up to 28,000 lb ( 58t )of counterweight with no fall-off loads or wing weights and has capacities that are up to 26% stronger than its closest competitor.
As the successor to the Grove TMS800E truck crane, the TMS800-2 adopts technology and features developed for larger truck-mounted and all-terrain cranes and packages them into an easily roadable 80USt unit.
Boasting a wide range of enhancements covering load charts, powertrain, and setup, the updated four-axle crane is ideal for a range of taxi applications covering renewable energy, cell tower installation, and road and bridge work.
The redesigned, lightweight carrier transforms the TMS800-2 into a true taxi crane with efficient roadability. The crane can carry its full 28,000 lbs ( 58t )of counterweight and remain within axle and tire limits without a fall-off load. In areas with stricter roading laws, the TMS800-2 can carry 18,000 lbs ( 8.16t )and remain under 100,000 lbs ( 45t )GVW (gross vehicle weight), and 25,000 lbs ( 11t )per axle while being in a taxi configuration. The absence of wing weights contributes to the crane’s slim 8.3 ft (2.5 m) travel width. These changes yield substantial transport savings over the lifetime of the crane.
