The 80 t GRT880 features a 41 m (135 ft) boom that is lighter than other cranes in its class. Customers will find this boom especially useful for the mining sector, equipment maintenance, and infrastructure projects. With a full complement of boom extension and insert options, the crane also has an outstanding reach of 60.9 m (200.0 ft) and maximum tip height of 68.0 m (223.0 ft). The boom is lighter and longer than its predecessor, but has the ability to lift heavier loads across its load chart.
ith increased capacity at mid range and maximum radii, the GRT880 is more versatile than competitors’ cranes—it boasts up to 16% greater capacity at full radius, 13% greater capacity in mid-range applications and 27% greater capacity at close radii. With offsettable boom and fly extensions, the crane enables customers to lift heavier loads to greater heights, helping companies compete for—and win—bids for projects they may not have been able to previously.
A new boom extension stowage system for the GRT880’s manual, offsettable jib option decreases erection and stowage time by 60% when compared with previous generation Grove cranes. This enables operators to set up and disassemble the cranes in less time, saving money and increasing return on investment.
The GRT880 also has best-in-class hoist line pulls at 7,883 kg (17,380 lbs) on both the main and the auxiliary hoists. The stronger pull results in fewer parts of line being needed to lift loads, which will lead to increased productivity on the job site and faster customer payback.
