The History Grove Coles 315M al-terrain military crane
The Coles 315M al-terrain crane entered service with the British Army in 1982 following an international tender. At the time Coles Cranes was the Europe's largest crane manufacturer. It is also referred as Grove 315M (as the Coles Cranes were taken over by Grove in 1984) and Crane Field Medium. A total of 150 of these cranes were delivered for service with the Royal Engineers and Royal Logistic Corp of the British Army.
The Coles 315M is used for bridge building, general stores handling and wide variety of other tasks. This mobile crane can handle standard 20 ft ISO containers.
The crane is normally operated by a single men. The cab provides seating for an additional passenger.
In 1984 the Coles Cranes were acquired by the Grove manufacturing company. In 1996 a contract was awarded to Grove Europe to fully refurbish all 150 operational Coles 315M cranes in order to extend their service lives. The last vehicle was refurbished in 1999.
From the original version two refurbished versions were produced during refurbishment programme. Both versions were fitted with new 3-section telescopic boom, with a maximum reach of 19.2 m. It has a traverse range of 360 degrees. The new boom uses higher capacity elements, so the lifting capacity was increased from 15 t of the original version to 18 t. The main difference between refurbished versions is their off-road mobility. A total of 83 cranes were refurbished to Standard Mobility (4x4x4) version. These received new engine, transmission and axle upgrade. Remaining 63 cranes were refurbished to Low Mobility (4x4) version. These retain the original driveline. Only tyres were upgraded.
The Low Mobility version retains the Cummins V555C turbocharged diesel engine, developing 160 hp. It is coupled with ZF gearbox with 6 forward and 6 reverse gears. The Standard Mobility version is powered by a new more powerful Cummins C-series turbocharged diesel engine, developing 240 hp. It is coupled with a Clarke gearbox with 6 forward and 6 reverse gears. Both versions have a full-time all-wheel drive. Maximum road speed is 80 km/h.
