Kran-Mitterhauser GmbH provides greater reach with new Grove GMK6300L

6/28/2016

Boasting six axles, a lifting capacity of 300 t and an 80 m main boom, the Grove GMK6300L proved an easy choice for the Austrian based crane rental company, Kran-Mitterhauser GmbH. Since its acquisition into the company’s fleet, the new crane has been working around the clock at construction sites in Upper Austria, Carinthia, Salzburg, and Tyrol.
"When we decided to expand our fleet it was a decisive step to help ensure the future success of our company,” explains Hedwig Rothböck, general manager at Kran-Mitterhauser GmbH. “Our goal is for Kran-Mitterhauser GmbH to grow into a national player and to help us achieve this we need a crane that is capable of lifting heavier loads to greater heights and one that is also quick to set-up. Furthermore, Grove's outstanding customer support in our region was also an important factor in our decision."
The Grove GMK6300L commands a strong lifting capacity and long boom enabling it to reach greater heights more quickly. The 80 m seven-section main boom is designed for heavy lifting without the need to rig the jib, ensuring trouble-free rigging and short set-up times.
"We believe that we made the right choice with the GMK6300L. The long boom enables us to complete many jobs for our customers on very competitive terms since we don't have to spend time and money mounting jibs and swingaways," adds Helmut Mitterhauser, managing director at Kran-Mitterhauser GmbH.
Additional flexibility is provided by the Megatrak independent suspension as well as four double hydraulically telescoping outrigger beams with vertical cylinders and outrigger pads. Suspension and outriggers can both be controlled on either side of the carrier as well as from the operator’s cab. This significantly saves time on the job site when the crane gets rigged or requires repositioning.  
Typical applications for the GMK6300L include lift work for high-rise buildings, tower crane erection, repair and construction work at industrial facilities and wind farm maintenance. Kran-Mitterhauser GmbH will use the Grove crane for a wide range of projects including placing precast concrete components and assembling tower cranes.
