Manitowoc debuts 3 new Grove all-terrain cranes at Bauma

At the Bauma 2019 show in Munich, U.S. crane maker Manitowoc unveiled three new all-terrain cranes under its Grove brand.

The new cranes include a five-axle machine, GMK5250XL-1, and two three-axle models: the GMK3060L and GMK3050-2.


Manitowoc GMK5250XL-1

Manitowoc says the GMK5250XL-1 couples the longest main boom and best lifting capacities of any five-axle, all-terrain crane on the market.

The 250-ton capacity crane has a boom length of 78.5 meters. It’s compact footprint allows it to work in tight spots.

An available option is a VIAB turbo retarder clutch which enables wear-free starting and braking.

The new three-axle GMK3060L is a 60-ton-capacity crane with a seven-section boom with 48 meters of main boom and a maximum tip height of 65 meters when working with its full jib.

With the most compact footprint in its class, Manitowoc says the GMK3060L can fit into tight spots and sets up quickly.



The 50-ton-capacity GMK3050-2 features a 40-meter main boom and a single counterweight configuration for ease of use.

Like the GMK3060L, the GMK3050-2 has the most compact footprint in its class, and features best-in-class load charts when configured in taxi-mode, at 12 tons per axle.
