Limestone mine in Turkey hails rock-solid performance of Grove GRT8120
- Yil-Mer, one of Turkey’s leading limestone producers, has purchased the country’s first Grove GRT8120 rough-terrain crane.
- The crane’s durable design and powerful lifting performance make it ideal for the demanding work in the mine.
Yil-Mer has received the first Grove GRT8120 in Turkey and has immediately put it to work in the demanding surroundings of its limestone mine. The crane was sold through long-time Manitowoc dealer Karun Makina, and it is now the largest Grove rough-terrain crane in the country.
Paulo Costa, Manitowoc’s regional sales manager for mobile cranes in the Middle East, said:
“The Grove GRT8120 is performing well for Yil-Mer. It’s a very tough workplace, but the GRT8120 is right at home. There is already a strong reputation for Grove rough-terrain cranes in Turkey, and several GRT880 and GRT8100 cranes are at work. But this is the first GRT8120 and we expect its performance to generate further interest. Manitowoc has a strong partner in Turkey, with Karun Makina, and customers know they’ll get all the service and support they need to keep their cranes working on the jobsite.”
The 120 t capacity Grove GRT8120 offers some of the most impressive characteristics of any two-axle rough-terrain crane on the market. As well as huge lifting capability, the crane has a seven-section, 60 m MEGAFORM™ boom, with up to 80.8 m of tip height when using the optional jib. It also offers the option of the MAXbase system, allowing greater flexibility with a variable outrigger positioning system to perform very well on congested jobsites. A wide, full-vision cab with 20° tilt maximizes comfort and visibility, and the operator further benefits from Manitowoc’s Crane Control System (CCS) that includes the Boom Configurator mode for simpler set-up and on-board lift planning.
