KWIK Logistics Adds New Grove GMK5250L to their Fleet
Kwik Logistics took delivery of a new five-axle Grove GMK5250L last month. This new generation crane from Grove Manitowoc was carefully selected due to its high flexibility, compactness and good capacities with its 70 metre hydraulic boom. The GMK5250L runs the latest tier 4 final engine utilising the latest technologies with fuel savings and lower running costs for the customer. A new generation computer system ( CCS ) with higher computing power and better usability and more ergonomic cabins all offer the operator ease of operation and better comfort for those long days in the seat. Grove has kept some of the proven systems whilst adding these new features to improve reliability and performance. Kwik Logistics will also have an advantage over their competitors when operating on those longer term jobs with the new global counterweight system to which the GMK5250L can mobilise around on mine sites with 21 tonne of counterweight and the boom in front cradle. Along with the GMK5250L was also a TIDD PC25 articulating pick and carry crane.
The TIDD is a very refined pick and carry crane with very good ergonomics for the operator and a 25 tonne capacity. The TIDD has auto slope and articulation deration for ultimate safety, hydropneumatic lockable suspension, Mercedes engine, auto tyre pressure control and a genuine inbuilt ROPS cabin. Kwik Logistics first began operating in Perth under the name of Kwik Transport and Crane Hire in 1991. Since those early days it has now grown into a formidable company comprising of 80 staff and 25 cranes with operations throughout the Perth metropolitan area and their corporate office in High Wycombe Perth servicing a wide variety of industry sectors including residential and commercial construction, engineering and Infrastructure. Kwik Logistics also recently acquired the specialist heavy haulage operator Jonesway Transport thus enabling Kwik to supply a complete package of Cranes, Traffic Management Haulage to their clients. WATM are pleased to have Kwik as a continued valued customer.
