    New grove tms9000-2 ccs anyone familiar?

    hey guys I’m running one of these tomorrow and can’t find much on how to run the new lmi in it. I’ve seen a couple videos on how to program the boom, but nothing on how to load counterweight. I know i gotta drop the top plate before I load the overlays, but got no clue on how to program that...

    Anyone familiar with terramite t5c?

    just picked it up for pretty cheap. She runs great for the loader and backhoe. BUT she is ungodly slow driving forwards. Reverse seems slightly better. From what I’ve read the top speed is about 4mph, and that’s guessing what mine does. Anyone know how to soup up the hydrostatic drive in em? Or...

    De-rate / re-rating a crane

    I work crane rental in Northern CA. Whenever counterweight has to be brought to the crane an oiler is required. We have an 80 ton link belt that when the cheek weights are needed, so is an oiler. on the flip side, we also have a 90 ton Link Belt RT that doesn't need an oiler.

    What crane would you pick?

    I run a ltm1220 and love it. If you can score one that has the outrigger control pad and not the remote with low hours get it! It is quicker to rig in/out and you can use all funtions in the upper, while running outriggers with the lower. The 1220 is a 265 ton, i dont know if the 1200 is the...

    looking for info on the grove rt635 at the local 3 training center.

    Hey folks. I am headed up there to take my practical cco, and have not really been around grove computers at all (just linkbelt and Lebeir). I understand the crane is single axis lever instead of joystick which is fine, but I was wondering about running the boom out? Any help would be appreciated.
