New Zealand based crane rental company Porter Cranes has taken delivery of a 50 tonne Grove GMK3050-2 - the first to be delivered in the Asia Pacific region.
The three axle crane features a 48 metre five section main boom, a seven metre swingaway extension and MAXbase variable outrigger setup. The new machine was weighed, tested and delivered by local dealer TRT, before being put straight to work erecting steel at the Waikeria Prison.
Peter Li Calsi, Porter Cranes haulage and crane manager, said: “We have a long-standing relationship with TRT, and already own several other Grove/ Manitowoc cranes, so we were confident taking this latest model.”
Porter Cranes, part of the larger Porter group, was established in 1945 and now operates out of 50 locations across New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and Southern California. Its wider rental fleet also includes aerial work platforms and general construction equipment.
