The company says the updated model continues the legacy of its predecessor and includes increased load capacity and Tier 4 Final engines in the carrier and superstructure.

The GMK6300L-1 features a maximum tip height of 120m when working with its full 80m main boom and 37m of jib.

When lifting with the main boom, the crane can accommodate up to 14 tonnes at full height and can handle this within a 14m - 28m working radius, offering a flexible range for such applications as tower crane rigging.

The crane is powered by a 430kW Mercedes Benz engine in the carrier and a 210kW Mercedes Benz in the superstructure. As mentioned, both engines conform to Tier 4 Final emissions standards and Manitowoc says they also offer improved fuel efficiency over the GMK600L.

The new crane does share some features with its predecessor, such as Megatrak suspension and all-wheel steering. The GMK6300L-1’s counterweight slabs and auxiliary hoist are interchanable with other Grove crane models including the GMK6300L, GMK5180-1, GMK5200-1 and GMK5250L, making the GMK6300L-1 a more economical choice for existing Grove owners.

Manitowoc says it hopes the Grove GMK6300-1 can replicate the success of the model it replaces.

"The GMK6300L, along with the GMK6400, effectively kick-started a new era of Grove all-terrain cranes, setting unprecedented industry standards in terms of reach, capacity and mobility," Manitowoc all-terrain crane global product director Andreas Cremer says.

"The GMK6300L raced to sales of 100 units in just two years and to date more than 400 have been delivered. With its significantly improved load charts and specifications, we expect the GMK6300L-1 to prove just as popular."
