diagnostics, a new ergonomic cab design with an 18-degree tilt and an easyto-access flat deck for safety, superior usability and comfort. The Terex RT 100US crane also features four steering modes, including two-wheel, four-wheel, crab and independent rear axle steering. It has a narrow width of just 3 metres and a removable counterweight, which allows it to be trailered without weight and width restrictions in most situations.

Tadano rough-terrain crane

The GR-1200XL has a maximum lifting capacity of 120 tons (110 tonnes) and features a 183.7-foot-long (56-metre) boom. The GR-1200XL has the largest maximum lifting capacity in Tadano’s rough-terrain crane product line. Its strong yet light, high-tensile steel, rounded boom features a single telescopic cylinder. It gives the crane a 184.0-foot (56.1 metre) lifting height and 150.0-foot (45.7-metre) load radius. Its jib provides additional reach, extending the lifting height to 241.4 feet (73.6 metres) with a load radius of 159.0 feet (48.4 metres). The GR1200XL rig’s ease of transport and on-site maneuverability are largely due to its compact carrier size. Overall rig length is 47 feet 5 inches (14,450 mm), but its carrier is just 28 feet 5 inches (8,655 mm) long. Additional features include HELLO-NET telematics and Tadano’s new Smart Chart system. HELLO-NET telematics help customers optimize their operations with real-time monitoring of crane activity, history, position data and maintenance information. This crane features Tadano’s EcoMode fuel monitoring system and Positive Control. Eco-Mode reduces fuel consumption while the crane is operated. Positive Control economizes fuel consumption while the crane is on standby.

termines the crane’s lifting capacity for every boom position as a function of the superstructure’s slewing angle in real time. This means that the lifting capacity for a specific radius is no longer limited to the lowest value for a pre-calculated 360-degree lifting capacity. Instead, the crane can always take full advantage of the maximum available lifting capacity. An optional electrohydraulic E-Pack is available which allows the AC 45 to work in crane operation with zero emissions.

Demag AC 45 City

Demag City crane for use in confined spaces

The AC 45 City is a 3-axle crane that offers compactness and a 45-tonne lifting capacity class. Total length is 8.68 metres, width is 2.55 metres, and height is 3.16 metres. Since the base section of its fully hydraulic main boom is also compact with its length of 7.80 metres, the AC 45 City is also able to work in buildings with a relatively low clearance while still keeping its boom at a steep angle. It has a fully hydraulic 31.2-metre main boom. Configuration flexibility makes it possible to customize the crane perfectly for different job requirements. In addition, the Demag AC 45 City also comes with features such as an axle load indicator, a hook height indicator, cruise control, and cameras for load, hook and hoist monitoring and for backing up. Remote radio control and storage boxes are included as well. The IC-1 Plus control system deMAY 2019
