Scott-Macon buys Demags

By Christian Shelton30 May 2018

US crane sales, rental and service company Scott-Macon Equipment has bought two Demag AC 220-5 all terrain cranes from manufacturer Terex Cranes. The new order joins the company’s existing Terex order for an AC 160-5 and AC 220-5.

The Demag AC 220-5 is in the 245 US ton (220 tonne) capacity class and has a boom length of 255.9 feet (78 metres). Terex said this is the longest main boom reach of any five-axle crane on the market. With boom extensions the crane’s reach can be extended to 324.8 feet (99 m).

The AC 220-5 also has a single engine with an intelligent motor management system to reduce operational and maintenance costs, says Terex, plus all-axle steering, independent rear-axle steering and dynamic launch control.

Scott-Macon Equipment is also a distributor of Terex cranes and, according to Terex, the Demag AC 220-5 will be available from them soon.
