German crane rental, steel erection and rigging company Heinrichs has taken delivery of two new Tadano All Terrain cranes with a 220 tonne ATF 220-5.1 and a 140 tonne ATF 140-5.1.
The five axle ATF 140-5.1 was ordered to replace an older ATF 110G-5 in the fleet. It offers a 60 metre main boom that can handle 99.8 tonnes at a radius of three metres. Features include the company’s Lift Adjuster system which compensates for deflection on long booms when lifting a load.
The ATF 220-5 also has a 68 metre seven section main boom with hydraulic luffing swingaway extension and an integrated 5.8 metre heavy lift extension. To be used alongside the existing fleet at construction sites, its first job was to assist with the dismantling of an asphalt plant.
Both cranes feature the newly developed ZF-TraXon transmission as well as a number of systems which include hill start assistant, a rock-free function and drive and power driving programs.
Thomas Heinrichs, owner of Heinrichs, said: “This is already our second 220. We were so happy with the previous model that there was no hesitation when it came to getting the new one. This type of crane is perfect for our longer-term projects like dismantling large industrial plants, but we can also use it as a taxi crane if required. And then, of course, there’s the new drive train that now powers the new cranes with its Stage V compliant exhaust aftertreatment system. This means we won’t have to worry about emission limits in the future. We are flexible, we offer long-term operational reliability, and we have a crane capable of handling a whole host of different orders. What more could you possibly want?”
Heinrichs added: “We are definitely going to have a lot more fun to come with our Tadano cranes. We have never been anything but incredibly satisfied with Tadano, and their cranes are now better than ever thanks to the new systems. It’s a joy to come to work.”
