Another Tadano for Härzschel

German crane rental company Härzschel Kranverleih has collected a new 100 tonne Tadano AC 4.100L-1 All Terrain crane from the Lauf factory on a day that Germany experienced torrential rain.

The four axle AC 4.100L-1 features a six section, 60 metre main boom, topped by a 10 to 19 metre bi-fold swingaway with up to 40 degrees of offset. An 8.1 metre insert can be installed between the boom nose and swingaway to provide a maximum tip height of 85 metres. The maximum counterweight is 24.5 tonnes, of which up to 6.1 tonnes can be carried on-board within 12 tonne axle loads.
Collecting the new crane on the day the heavens opened

Company founder Manfred Härzschel said: “Choosing the Tadano AC 4.100L-1 was a pretty straightforward decision, since it perfectly complements our cutting edge fleet in that space between the AC 4.080-1 and our 160 tonne unit from Lauf, rounding everything off perfectly.”

His daughter, Sylvia Fredeweß, the new managing director, added: “We ordered the AC 4.100L-1 with an air conditioning system, fridge, and engine independent heater. In addition to this new model which we are collecting today, we have just placed an order for a 220 tonne AC 5.220-1 from Tadano."
