UK crane hire company Bryn Thomas has taken its Fourth 150 tonne Grove GMK 5150XL All Terrain crane.
The GMK 5150XL can carry up to 10.2 tonnes of counterweight within 12 tonne axle loadings and up to 30.9 tonnes in the UK where 16.5 tonne axle loads are possible. The crane boasts a seven section 68.7 metre main boom which can handle 8.1 tonnes when fully extended, 9.4 tonnes at 66 metres and 12.7 tonnes when extended to 60 metres.
All the cranes have the 16.2 metre bi-fold swing away extension which can be extended with an 8.1 metre insert to 24.2 metres for a 96.5 metre maximum tip height and the machines have the MAXbase function which gives users more flexibility to select the optimum setup for the job and offers more flexibility in how they configure their Grove mobile cranes.
Operations Director Nic Hutchison said: These cranes run with an interchangeable ballast and can go up and down the range, which means it’s more versatile for our Grove fleet and our newest Grove crane is a perfect investment to grove our longer boomed sector of our fleet.
We are really looking forward to the four new GMK 4080L’s that are due to be delivered within the next few months.
Bryn Thomas Cranes and sister company BJW Cranes runs a fleet of around 70 All Terrain, city type and mobile tower cranes with capacities ranging from 15 to 500 tonnes from six depot locations.
