German crane and access rental service I & H Kran Transport Montageservice has taken delivery of two new Tadano All Terrain cranes, a 100 tonne AC 100-4L/AC 4.100L-1 and 220 tonne AC 220-5/AC 5.220L-1.
The four axle AC 100-4L features a 60 metre main boom plus 10.1 to 17.4 metre bi-fold swingaway extension which can be extended to 31.9 metres for a maximum tip height of almost 96 metres. The five axle AC 220-5 boasts an eight section 78 metre main boom plus an 11.4 to 21 metre bi-fold swingaway extension for a maximum tip height of 102 metres.
Site manager Nils Laumann said: “Among the many factors that won us over when it came to the AC 100-4L were its compact dimensions and two engine concept. However, the absolute technical highlight is the IC-1 Plus control system which makes it possible to take full advantage of the maximum available crane lifting capacity even when space is constrained and when using outriggers in an asymmetrical configuration. This enables the AC 100-4L to tackle jobs that would normally require a bigger crane. Lifting capacities are significantly increased at various slewing angles in many cases, even with a partial counterweight, and that makes using this crane particularly cost effective in many projects.”
“We’ll be using this crane primarily to lift concrete prefabricated components. Its long main boom and radius of up to 74 metres make it the ideal machine.”
I & H Kran Transport is based in Rötha on the south side of Leipzig and offers cranes, aerial lifts and telehandlers as well has heavy industrial moving and transport.
