24 July 2020

Germany’s MaxiKraft Group has placed an order with Manitowoc for 17 new Grove all-terrain cranes, the first six of which – a GMK3060Ls, three GMK4090s and a GMK5150L – were delivered at the end of June.

“We are proud MaxiKraft has come to rely on our crane technology from Wilhelmshaven,” said Giorgio Angelino, SVP mobile cranes at Manitowoc.

Erdogan Arslan, regional director mobile cranes CEN, Scandinavia and used cranes at Manitowoc added, “MaxiKraft and Manitowoc have enjoyed a longstanding partnership. Thank you for the trust you have placed in our product and customer service.”

The GMK3060L, which made its debut at bauma 2019, is a compact unit with a seven-section, 48m long main boom. The GMK4090, is a compact four-axle model, making it an useful taxi crane, carrying up to 10.2t of counterweight within its 48t gross vehicle weight and with 12t/axle distributed equally.

The five-axle GMK5150L offers 150t lifting capacity from its 60m main boom — with 10.2t of taxi ballast within 12t/axle and a maximum counterweight of 44.5t.

“The new Grove mobile cranes from Wilhelmshaven will help us modernize our fleet and offer impressive efficiency. They can travel with extensive equipment and counterweights, they have high load capacities, and as such, perfectly meet the needs of our customers. This focus on the customer is our trademark at MaxiKraft,” said MaxiKraft Group owner Maik Kanitzky.

The all-terrain cranes will be deployed on a variety of projects, including in the infrastructure and industry sector, and the construction, chemical and energy industries.

The MaxiKraft Group, founded by Maik Kanitzky in 1992, consists of five subsidiaries: MaxiKraft, Maximum, Kranlogistik Sachsen, Kranlogistik Lausitz and Treffler. Across a total of 23 branches it employs 500 people and has a 200-strong fleet of mobile, lattice and crawler cranes.
