German civil engineering company D&K Spezial Tiefbau has taken delivery of a 100 tonne Tadano ATF 100G-4 All Terrain crane.
The four axle ATF 100G-4 has a 51 metre main boom topped by a 10 to 18 metre bi-fold swingaway to offer a maximum lift height of 71 metres and a maximum radius of 58 metres. It can also travel with six tonnes of counterweight and bi-fold extension on board within 12 tonne axle loads. The crane will be used to lift various materials and machinery into constructions pits along with other lifting tasks.
Managing director Alexander Dreier, said: “The Tadano machines are always ready to go, and the chances of major repairs being needed are very slim. This means the cranes are always working to capacity, which is brilliant for us.”
D&K crane operator Tomasz Buro, added: “It’s just a whole lot of fun to drive the crane. It’s always fully operational and doesn’t break down – even when it’s really been put through its paces. On a similar note, I have never had any problems with the Tadano 90, either, which I have been working with for the past few years.”
Based in Bad Grönenbach, south Germany, B&K specialises in construction pits, sheet walls, pile walls and foundations, groundwater conservation and slope protection.
