Irish concrete specialist Concast Precast has taken delivery of a 220 tonne Demag AC 220-5 All Terrain crane.
The five axle AC 220-5 features an eight section 78 metre main boom, plus an 11.4 to 21 metre bi-fold swingaway extension for a 99 metre maximum tip height.
Chief financial officer Bernard Quinn said: “The main reason we decided on the AC 220-5 was the high quality and associated reliability of Demag cranes. In addition, its powerful performance characteristics made quite an impression on us, as both large lifting capacities and utmost precision are required when building structures with heavy precast concrete units – and the Demag AC 220-5 definitely delivers on both counts.”
Demag/Terex sales manager Lyle Sibbald added: “Having an industry leader like Concast choose Demag is something that we’re extremely proud of. We’re certain that the AC 220-5 will pay for itself in no time thanks to its outstanding performance.”
