Italian crane rental company Fedeli Noleggi has taken delivery of a new 160 tonne Demag AC 160-5 All Terrain crane.
The new five axle crane has a 68 metre main boom, plus a 12 to 21 metre bi fold swingaway extension that can be extended to 33 metres with a 12 metre insert between boom nose and the extension, which can offset by up to 40 degrees. The maximum tip height is almost 105 metres.
Other features include Demag’s IC-1 Plus crane control system with multi position outrigger width setting and automatic monitoring and load chart calculation. The 2.75 metre wide chassis includes dynamic launch control and independent rear axle steering, with an overall length of 14.5 metres.
Alessandro Fedeli said: “In combination with its 68 metre main boom, this makes it versatile beyond our wildest dreams. The Demag AC 160-5’s axle loads contributes to this as well, as the crane can travel on public roads within 12 tonne axle load loads, even when carrying a payload of 650kg.”
“We were absolutely thrilled with the technical advantages offered by this crane, so we were dying to finally see it in our fleet,” added his son, Filippo Fedeli, the two manage the company together along with sister Irene.
