PHOTO STORY: Boom Retract Rope Replacements

Our Takoradi team recently replaced the boom retract ropes on a RT 880E at Gold Fields in Tarkwa, Ghana

Grove requires retract boom ropes on full power booms (typically used on the smallest All Terrain Cranes and most Rough Terrain Cranes) to be replaced every 7 years.
