Irving Equipment adds two Grove cranes

Irving Equipment has strengthened its fleet by adding two new Manitowoc cranes: a GMK5250L and a TMS9000-2. With the two cranes, the Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada-based construction company is able to perform two-hook operations, which boosts its competitive edge.

“We are now better equipped to provide the best lifting solution for our clients,” said Victor Murty, Operations Manager, Irving Equipment. “Now we have even more lifting options. This will help us compete for and win jobs we couldn’t have previously.”

“The TMS9000-2 has an automatic truck transmission, which enables us to report about its fuel usage in comparison with our other machines,” Murty said. “The GMK5250L is a one-engine crane and employs the MAXbase multiple position outrigger system. With one engine we cut down on maintenance, and the MAXbase technology enables us to better position the crane around job sites.”

The TMS9000-2 is a Grove truck mounted crane that features a 11.2-51.6 m (36-169 ft), six-section Grove MEGAFORM boom, and has optional extensions and a counterweight removal system. It also has a 100 t (115 USt) capacity, as well as multiple bi-fold swingaway extension options. The GMK5250L is an all-terrain crane that features MAXbase technology, a 250 t (300 USt) capacity and a 70 m (230 ft) seven-section boom.

Irving specialises in heavy lifting and has been working with Manitowoc for more than 60 years now. Around 60 per cent of its fleet is currently comprised cranes from Manitowoc.
