German crane rental company Schmidbauer has taken delivery of an 80 tonne Tadano AC 4.080-1.
The four axle crane features a seven section 60 metre boom and a 69 metre maximum tip height. The crane can carry up to 9.3 tonnes of counterweight and 6.5 metre swingaway jib whilst remaining within 12 tonnes per axle limit. Overall width is 2.55 metres. Features include the variable outrigger Flex Base set-up with automatic sensing and load chart generation and Surround View camera system, which shows the various extension lengths for the outriggers and the counterweight tailswing radius.
Schmidbauer's Thomas Muswieck said: “The capacity indicator provides crane operators with all relevant information on the crane’s lifting capacity in the current working range while taking the boom position into account. This makes working with the crane extremely safe and is part of why we’ll be using it primarily for work on prefab building construction around our Munich base, as a successor to our exceptionally reliable Tadano ATF 80-4 that has served us well for many years.”
The new crane was handed over by Tadano sales manager Hans Asam. The Schmidbauer group already includes about 80 AT and lattice boom crawler cranes manufactured by Tadano at its locations in Zweibrücken and Lauf.
