Grove GTK1100

The initial specification of the GTK 1100 consists of a six-section telescopic mast up to 81m high, mounted on a “standard semi-trailer”. Four spreaders at the top of the mast attach by pendant links to four outriggers at the base of the crane to provide stability.

On top of the tower is a telescopic luffing boom. When fully extended, the GTK is expected to have a maximum lift height of 140m (460ft). Initial tests suggest that the crane will lift loads over 70t (77 US tons) to heights of over 120m.

The company says that as few as three trailers can transport the rest of the crane’s components.

Manitowoc says it plans to release more information in time for the Bauma show.
