New Grove all terrain for Johnson Arabia24 November 2021
Dubai, UAE-headquartered crane rental company Johnson Arabia has expanded its fleet with the purchase of a 150 tonne capacity Grove GMK 5150L all terrain crane. Johnson Arabia said it made the purchase following improving market conditions and opportunities arising from the Expo 2020 – a World Expo currently being hosted by Dubai (from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022).
Johnson Arabia cites the GMK 5150L’s six-section Megaform boom, swing away of up to 17.8 metres, and 60 metre boom extension as being factors in its decision to buy the crane.
The GMK 5150L’s counterweight configurations enable setup from one tonne of counterweight to taxi configurations of 12 to 16.5 tonnes per axle. This, said Johnson Arabia, results in greater roadability.
Johnson Arabia added that the crane’s single engine concept with the latest Euromot 4/Tier 4 engine, plus its Eco mode, reduces fuel consumption helping it work towards a greener future.
