UK rental company DSM Contract Lifting has taken delivery of a 12 tonne Böcker AK 52 aluminium truck crane.
Mounted on a 32 tonne four axle chassis with rear steering axle, the AK 52 features a four section main boom plus a three section luffing jib for a 52 metre tip height. Its optional three metre extension takes the maximum tip height to 55 metres.
Maximum radius is 45 metres and it can take three tonne out to 17 metres with a height of 31 metres. Features include wireless remote controls with colour screen, automatic levelling and fully variable outrigger set up and monitoring.
DSM managing director Melvyn Rogers, said: “The AK 52 truck crane is an excellent addition to our fleet. Böcker’s customer service is second to none. Our customers and operators love the safe and efficient machines which perform reliably every day. It’s a win-win for us at DSM, there will be plenty more of these cranes coming to us over our next investment phase.”
The new crane is the fifth Bocker aluminium truck crane in its fleet and follows two AK 46/6000s taken delivery last year – see: More Böckers for DSM.
