The new model TMS9000E of Manitowoc (USA) will replace the TMS900E in Grove’s truck crane line. The 110 USt capacity crane has a 36 ft. to 142 ft. five-section, full-power boom featuring Grove’s MEGAFORM shaping for improved strength and rigidity. The boom also features Manitowoc’s patented TWIN-LOCK boom-pinning technology.
Other upgrades to the TMS9000E include new chassis and superstructure cabs; new boom support and counterweight support designs; and improved accessibility for service and maintenance. Maximum tip height for the crane is 151 ft. The crane also features a manually offsettable (at 0°, 20° and 40°) bifold lattice swingaway extension. Lattice insert extensions are available to increase maximum tip height to 237 ft.
The TMS9000E can accommodate up to 48,500 lbs of counterweight, with a hydraulic removal system incorporated for ease of set-up. The superstructure cab can be tilted +20° for increased operator visibility and comfort during operation. The adjustable operator’s seat in the cab includes hydraulic suspension and features armrest integrated crane controls. TMS9000E is powered by a Cummins ISM 450 hp, six cylinder turbo-charged, after-cooled engine. This engine is certified to 2007 on-highway engine EPA regulations for the US market.
