Its optional three metre extension takes the maximum tip height to 55 metres. It has a maximum radius of 45 metres and can take three tonne out to a 17 metre radius with a height of 31 metres.
Features include wireless remote controls with colour screen, automatic levelling and fully variable outrigger set up and monitoring. It has also been supplied with the company’s PK 600-D platform basket attachment which has a maximum outreach of 36 metre with a 100kg platform capacity. Maximum capacity is 600kg which it can take to 30 metres.
Cork director Sean Desmond, said: “Great to take delivery of the first AK 52 in the northwest. We are looking forward to being able to offer this crane to our customers in addition to our current extensive range of cranes. This versatile crane will be a great bonus to the Telecoms industry with the rolling out of the new 5G network and especially with the inclusion of the extending platform basket attachment.”
