Manitowoc Unveils New Grove GMK4070L at bauma 2022
To strengthen its four-axle all-terrain crane line-up, Manitowoc is unveiling the Grove GMK4070L at bauma 2022 in Munich, Germany. The 70t GMK4070L offers the strongest load charts and the longest boom in its class at 60m. At its full 60m, the crane is able to lift an impressive 4.4t, while at 49m owners will be capable of picking loads of up to 8.3t. When working at its maximum radius of 46m, the GMK4070L can lift 1t.
Up to 78m of maximum tip height is available when the 60m main boom is paired with its 15m swingaway jib option. These are capabilities more commonly associated with 100t cranes and allow the new model to take on jobs that would typically require larger cranes.
“The Grove GMK4070L offers improved engineering design and adopts several latest technologies to deliver a new level of performance, operation, serviceability, and fuel efficiency,” said Andreas Cremer, vice president of product management for mobile cranes at Manitowoc. “It’s a crane that will be a true game changer, surprising many customers with just how much more a 70t all-terrain crane can achieve.”
Offering unmatched versatility, the GMK4070L gives owners a host of options for travel. At a configuration of 16.5t per axle, the crane carries an impressive 17.8t of counterweight, just shy of its full 19t complement. In situations requiring 12t per axle, it can carry up to 13.3t, while for 10t per axle configurations it is able to travel with 5.3t of counterweight.
