300 tonner for Steil

German crane rental company Steil Kranarbeiten has taken delivery of a 300 tonne Tadano AC 6.300-1 All Terrain.

The six axle crane features a seven section 80 metre main boom plus an 11.4 to 21 metre bi-fold swingaway which can be offset up to 40 degrees. Inserts up to 63 metres can be added for a maximum tip height of 123 metres.

Daniel Gödert, managing director of Steil said: "The Tadano AC 6.300-1 is undoubtedly one of the best that the market has to offer in six axles. We only bought the basic unit with full ballast and the pre-equipment for the tip. The AC 6.300-1 is particularly economical for us."

The crane will be used for the pre-assembly of wind turbines and as an auxiliary crane for the assembly and dismantling of large crawler cranes.
