Ready to Work

This Grove crane, with its attendant truck are poised and ready to start work for Partners Industrial Crane Rentals.

The crane is a Grove GMK5275, which boasts a 233 foot, 7 section boom (which can be extended to 354 feet with a jib) and a 275 ton maximum lifting capacity. It is mounted on a five axle chassis. All axles can be set up to steer (axle 4 can be disengaged on the highway) and axles 3, 4 and 5 are drive axles, with an optional drive on axle 2.

To keep axle weight down to comply with local limits it is also fitted with a three axle dolly.

The Western Star truck is hauling a trailer with an array of counterweights for the crane.
