Demag for Mayer

German rental company Mayer Autokran-Vermietung has taken delivery of a 160 tonne Demag AC 160-5 All Terrain crane.

The five axle crane features a 68 metre main, boom plus a 21 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, while the 2.75 metre wide carrier has an overall length of 14 metres. The crane also features the IC-1 Plus control system, which provides an optimum capacity for the actual outrigger configuration and superstructure slew point.

The new Demag AC 160-5

Chief executive Erich Mayer said: “We decided in favour of the Demag AC 160-5 because it is the best in its class which fulfills our wishes and requirements. It is short, narrow and maneuverable and, in spite of its compact size, combines a high lifting capacity with a long reach. The AC 160-5 will be our new multi-purpose weapon for increased requirements in the local area – and especially on construction sites with shorter deployment times.”
