AmQuip adds new heavy-lift Grove GMK6400 all-terrain crane

4/1/2011 Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Manitowoc Cranes and AmQuip celebrated the sale of a new Grove GMK6400 to the Philadelphia-based crane rental company in a ceremony last week at CONEXPO 2011.

The GMK6400 boasts a 450 USt maximum capacity, the largest capacity six-axle all-terrain crane in the world.

Dave Hull, Manitowoc senior vice president of sales, North America, called the crane a class-leader with the newest technology and said AmQuip will profit from its capabilities.

“The GMK6400 will be a game-changer in urban areas because of its capacity and features,” Hull said.

New features found on the GMK6400 include a new hydrostatic drive system called Mega Drive, a single engine for reduced fuel consumption and an operator-rigged Mega Wing Lift capacity-enhancing system.

AmQuip Crane Rental is one of Manitowoc’s trusted Pre-Production Partners, which test new crane models in the field and provide feedback and suggested improvements before the crane goes into full production. They are a leading U.S. crane rental company, with operations serving the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic region, and most Midwest and Southern states. Significant shareholders include Altpoint Capital Partners, Bard Capital, Wesley Group and Lehman Brothers Holdings. For additional information, please visit:
