500t Demag for Autovictor

Italian crane rental company Autovictor has taken delivery of a refurbished 500 tonne Demag AC 500-8 All Terrain crane.

The eight axle AC 500-8 features a 56 metre main boom, a 90 metre luffing jib and a Superlift system to offer a maximum tip height of 146 metres. With a carrier length of 17.1 metres, it claims to be the most compact in the 500 tonne class. The AC 500 underwent a complete overhaul to restore it to a ‘good as new’ condition, with the company saying the decision to purchase it was based on the performance of the second hand 600 tonne Demag TC 2800-1 lattice-boomed truck crane it purchased in 2017.

Father and son owners Angelo and Alessandro Gino, said: “The endurance of the TC 2800-1 has made such a compelling impression on us that we just had to expand our fleet with a Demag AC 500-8. The Tadano Demag Italia team acted very swiftly when it came to helping us get the ideal crane for our needs. Our people really did an outstanding job: The AC 500-8 is now as good as new.”
