Italian crane service provider Fedeli could barely wait to receive their brand new Demag AC160-5.
“We were absolutely thrilled with the technical advantages offered by this crane, so we were dying to finally see it in our fleet”Filippo Fedeli during the handover
His father Alessandro and his sister Irene, who manage the company and share the same opinion without reservation, share the same opinion.
They were particularly impressed by the innovative IC-1 Plus control system, which determines the crane’s lifting capacity for every boom position as a function of the superstructure’s slewing angle so that the crane can always use the maximum capacity available to it.
In addition, it is the most compact crane of its class with a width of 2.75 metres and a total length of 14.51 metres. “In combination with its 68-meter main boom, this makes it versatile beyond our wildest dreams,” says Alessandro Fedeli.
Demag AC160-5 axle load contributes to competitive advantage
The 160-tonne mobile crane can travel on public roads within a 12-tonne axle load limit even when carrying a payload of 650 kilograms.
This means they do not need expensive escort vehicles for the assignments and keep things cost-effective for their customers. They said with absolute confidence that they will get back their investment in no time with this competitive advantage.
