The Kobelco KMG6300 is a six-axles 265 ton all terrain crane that is designed by Grove Germany, an affiliate to manufacturer Manitowoc Company.
Specially designed for Kobelco, the crane combines the detailed technical requirements for the site needs in Japan, including various regulations which has given rise to much differential in function and safety considerations. Comparing machines from overseas and the KMG6300, it provides greater ease for the special boom structure and versatile transportation method.
Manitowoc has reached an agreement to supply Grove all terrain cranes produced by the Deutsche Grove plant in Wilemshaven to Kobelco and these Kobelco branded cranes will be sold to Kobelco on an OEM basis for sale exclusively in Japan. The parties intend to introduce four all-terrain models under this agreement by 2005, ranging in capacity from 100 to 450 tonnes.
