Schmidbauer's third Tadano AC 4.080-1

German crane rental company Schmidbauer has taken delivery of its third 80 tonne Tadano AC 4.080-1 All Terrain crane.

The four axle AC 4.080-1 features a seven section, 60 metre boom and is equipped with the 8.5 to 16 metre bi-fold swingaway extension for a maximum tip height of almost 79 metres and 40 degrees of offset. The crane can carry up to 9.3 tonnes of counterweight on board within 12 tonne axle loads.

The crane will be used for a wide range or working within the city, including erection of concrete, steel and prefab components, along with antenna installations and container handling.

Managing director, Stefan Schmidbauer said: “We’ve had nothing but good experiences with our two other AC 4.080-1 units, so deciding on a third was actually really easy. On top of that, the AC 4.080-1 is extremely versatile as a taxi crane, which makes it a remarkably cost effective machine for a large number of jobs.”
