“It’s a pleasure for Manitowoc to deliver this GMK5250L to Musselli,” said Davide Camperi, area sales manager for mobile cranes at Manitowoc in Italy. “The new crane will join a GMK4100L-1, delivered in December 2016, that’s already working on a large refinery project. We’re proud to see our cranes take a leading role on such high-profile job sites.”

The GMK5250L is one of the most powerful and versatile five-axle cranes on the market. Its performance capabilities include the highest-rated capacity, best load chart, best maneuverability and quickest set-up time in its class. The crane features a 250 t capacity and 70 m boom. Musselli’s existing fleet includes several other Grove cranes including a GMK6300L, which was purchased in 2011.
