Irving Equipment Adds New Grove Cranes to Its Fleet
Irving Equipment recently added 2 new Manitowoc cranes to its fleet. With the GMK5250L and the TMS9000-2, the company based in Saint John, New Brunswick will be able to perform 2-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 at Irving. “Now we have even more lifting options. This will help us compete for and win jobs we couldn’t have previously.”
Irving also works closely with Manitowoc to provide feedback to the manufacturer about what customers might want from their cranes. The crane contractor even goes so far as to provide data about the Manitowoc cranes utilization in its fleet to the manufacturer. The latest example of this collaboration involves the fuel consumption of the TMS9000-2 and the efficiency of the GMK5250L.
The TMS9000-2 is a Grove truck-mounted crane that features a 11.2 – 51.6 m, 6-section Grove MEGAFORM boom, and has optional extensions and a counterweight removal system. It also has a 100 t capacity, as well as multiple bi-fold swingaway extension options. The GMK5250L is an all-terrain crane that features MAXbase technology, a 250 t capacity and a 70 m 7-section boom.
Irving specializes in heavy lifting and has been working with Manitowoc for more than 60 years now. Around 60% of its fleet is currently comprised of cranes from Manitowoc. Irving’s dealer, Shawmut Equipment, plays a crucial role in the relationship between Irving and Manitowoc. The dealer often helps Irving identify what needs it is trying to address and then finds the solution that the construction company will benefit from the most.
