German lifting and transport service provider Weiland Kran & Transport has expanded its fleet with addition of an ATF 70G-4 all terrain crane, produced by Japanese manufacturer Tadano. It is the second ATF 70G-4 in the company’s fleet although this latest one has a longer boom of 52.1 metres compared to 44 metres on its previous one.

The 70-tonne capacity class cranes share the same boom extensions, the same counterweight, and both have two engines as well as ten-tonne axle load limits for taxi crane duties.

“Our day-to-day workload generally involves two to three short-term projects on construction sites, and we also have a number of long-term assignments running in the background. Some of the requirements are poles apart, while others are quite similar,” said Sebastian Degenhardt, junior director at Weiland Kran & Transport. “This allows us to use the 70-tonner that is most suitable for the task at hand. Either that or we can make a quick change in cases where both 70-tonners are capable of handling the same project, but one needs to be available for the next job faster. This is an ideal scenario for our planning department.”
