The new 100 tonne-capacity truck crane features a number of improvements over previous models that will enable owners to increase their utilisation and lifting capabilities. “The Grove TMS9000-2 is a clear example of The Manitowoc Way in action,” said Harrison Hipple, product manager for truck-mounted cranes at Manitowoc. “We brought our customers in at the earliest stages of designing this crane to ensure we made a product that fits their lifting needs. It was engineered with one goal in mind: to increase utilisation rates for customers and increase their return on investment in a truck crane.”

The TMS9000-2 is approximately 363 kg lighter than its predecessor. Its reduced, best-in-class gross vehicle weight enables a wider range of flexibility in carrying counterweight, cribbing and other items, which will help lifters optimise the crane for a variety of applications.

The crane features a new, 51.6 m, six-section MEGAFORM boom that utilizes Grove’s Twin-Lock pinning system. It’s a greaseless boom, which reduces maintenance for owners. The improved reach will enable customers to complete a wider variety of applications with the crane, but from a compact chassis [width: 2.6 m (8.5 ft); length: 13.4 m (43.8 ft)].

“The Grove TMS9000-2 represents a significant advance in truck crane power and flexibility. With improved roadability, reach and capacity, companies will be able to complete a wider range of jobs at a lower cost, increasing utilisation and return on investment,” Hipple said. “We know for a fact that customers are eager to have this new crane join their fleets because they have been with us from the beginning, helping us design a crane that will have a real impact on their own profitability.”
