Lambertsson Kran is the world’s first company to pair K-100 synthetic rope with a Grove all-terrain

15 Feb 2017

Continuous Improvement at WATM Sweden’s Lambertsson Kran is taking delivery of two innovative products that are sure to increase efficiency and return on investment for its fleet: a Grove GMK4100L-1 and Samson K-100 synthetic rope. The company will use the crane and K-100 together, which not only marks its first foray into synthetic rope, but also the first time that a company has paired the product with an all-terrain crane globally. 

The company chose the 100 t GMK4100L-1 for its compact footprint and reach—it has the best load charts in its class and a narrow 2.55 m width. The “L” denotes it’s the long boom version of the crane, with a reach of 60 m. The crane’s two hoists will each be fitted with K-100. Lambertsson Kran learned of K-100 at an open house sponsored by Scanunit, a Helsingborg-based Samson dealer. The company said it was intrigued by its potential to increase return on investment, namely its lower maintenance requirements (such as a lack of greasing or lubing), environmental benefits (such as a lack of oil usage) and its ease of handling in reeving. 

“The GMK4100L-1 is a compact crane and ideal for lifting jobs in the city, and in factories with tight working quarters,” said Claes Jakobsson, region manager with Lambertsson Kran. “With K-100, we can reduce the weight of the crane and carry more counterweight, which will help us as we primarily use the Grove as a taxi crane performing lifts in the city of Malmö. K-100 will also make it easier for the operator to reeve the rope on the jib and hook blocks.”
