Custom-Built Grove GMK6450-1 Gets Ready to Work in Barbados


Nov. 29, 2023 - Rental company Crane & Equipment, of Bridgetown, Barbados, has taken delivery of the first Grove all-terrain, custom-built GMK6450-1 crane in the Caribbean.

The strongest heavy-duty 6-axle crane on the market, according to Grove, the GMK6450-1 shares the same design as the Grove GMK6400-1, but with an increased maximum capacity of 450 t (495 USt).

It will tackle jobs at construction sites throughout the island, including energy and infrastructure applications.

The new acquisition expands Crane & Equipment’s growing fleet of Grove cranes, which currently relies on a GMK5250L and a GMK4100L-1.

“We are very excited to add such an impressive crane to our fleet. We have built a reputation of providing top-of-the-line equipment to our customers in Barbados, and this new Grove will help us reinforce the highest standards of our services,” said James Bradshaw, owner of Crane & Equipment.
