Manitowoc has launched the upgraded version of the Grove GRT8100 at bauma in Munich, offering operators a new carrier positioning system and repowered engine.

The new engine for the GRT8100-1 meets Euromot5/Tier 4 Final requirements, delivering 10% more power and greater fuel efficiency. 

The company's presence at bauma 2022 was used to launch the new crane, which will be available from 2023.

Integrating a new chassis more commonly associated with the chassis from the GRT8120, the crane also boasts an updated engine and transmission package, and a wider cab with enhanced operating features. 

“The GRT8100 has been a popular choice with customers worldwide. With the GRT8100-1, we have taken a great crane and made it even better,” said Federico Lovera, product manager for rough-terrain, industrial, and lattice boom crawler cranes at Manitowoc. 

“The new Grove GRT8100-1 will go into production at our US and Italian factories simultaneously, allowing deliveries to customers around the world to begin in early Q2 next year.”
