News Release

Dewsbury & Proud Ltd purchase three Grove GMK3060s


UK based crane hire and contract lifting provider Dewsbury & Proud Ltd has purchased three Grove GMK3060 cranes. The company has recently taken delivery of two of the GMK3060s with the final crane scheduled for delivery in July. The Grove cranes will work on a variety of jobs across the UK including house building projects, concrete installation and in the steel industry.


“The Grove GMK3060 is an ideal machine for our company because it can be used for a range of applications,” explains Tim Proud, managing director of Dewsbury & Proud Ltd. “Plus the fact that it’s a highly robust and versatile crane with all-wheel steering capabilities and that it comes equipped with an impressive 43 m main boom and 15 m luffing jib, made the GMK3060 an obvious choice for us.”


The 60 t capacity GMK3060 combines a powerful, six-section Megaform boom that features the new Boom Configuration Mode. This feature automatically selects the optimal boom configuration for a lift once the operator has entered the basic lift parameters. This saves time at the job site and makes the set-up much easier. The GMK3060 was also the first crane to feature Manitowoc’s new Crane Control System (CCS). The new Manitowoc Crane Control System helps to get more work done faster, and with great precision. The user-friendly crane control system will be progressively installed on all new all-terrain crane models, as well as crawler cranes, rough-terrain cranes, boom trucks and tower cranes, achieving the highest level of comfort, ergonomic control, and lifting capacity.


“One third of our fleet are Grove cranes,” says Proud. “We continue to invest in Grove cranes because we know that they are reliable machines, capable of working on a variety of job sites quickly and efficiently. We have worked in partnership with Manitowoc over the past 30 years and during this time we have experienced exceptional customer service throughout the sales process as well as excellent follow-up services.”


Founded in 1977, Dewsbury & Proud is a leading taxi crane provider across the Midlands.  The company also offers lifting services and operates a fleet of approximately 40 mobile cranes.
