Manitowoc (USA) has introduced its new truck crane, the Grove TM500E-2. The new truck crane has two engines. The highway carrier features a Cummins ISC 300 hp diesel and a Cummins QSB 3.3L 110 hp off-road diesel engine powers the superstructure. Both engines are certified to current EPA emission standards for the US market. This two engine solution helps reduce fuel usage.
The 45 USt capacity TM500E-2, replaces the TMS500E in Grove’s truck crane line. The new crane is equipped with a 29 ft to 95 ft four-section, full-power boom. A longer 32 ft to 102 ft four-section full-power boom is optional. The crane’s chassis is built to Grove’s specifications and features a spring front suspension and air rear suspension which provide a comfortable ride at speeds up to 65 mph. The operator can monitor all engine functions from the in-dash gauges.
