US crane rental company NessCampbell has taken delivery of the first 250 tonnes Grove GMK5250XL-1 All Terrain in the northwest.
Supplied by distributor Western Pacific Crane & Equipment, the five-axle GMK5250XL-1 features an eight section 78.5 metre main boom topped by an 18-metre bi-fold swing-away extension that can be extended to 33.5 metres with additional inserts.
Features include a Tier 4 final engine and the company’s MaxBase variable outrigger system. Its first job was lifting and placing 12-tonne metal structures at a power facility outside of Sheridan, Oregon, before being sent to lift four HVAC units each weighing 1.6 tonnes at an industrial facility in Portland.
NessCampbell president John Anderson, said: “We looked at the specs for the GMK5250XL-1 and were impressed with its capacity and the enhancements in the load charts, as well as its compact design. We’ve had such a good experience with our Grove cranes, especially our GMK cranes, that we knew the GMK5250XL-1 would be a great fit for our rental fleet. So far it’s performed perfectly.”
Matt Noonan, Western Pacific sales specialist, added: “We’re confident the Grove GMK5250XL-1 will be an excellent addition to NessCampbell’s fleet. The combination of high capacity and best in class boom length makes this crane a perfect fit for jobs in a variety of industries.”
Based in Portland, Oregon and Bothell, Washington, NessCampbell operates a fleet of All Terrain, Rough Terrain and crawler cranes throughout the northwest.
