The three-axle crane has a boom that extends from 9.5 metres to 48 metres and a maximum lifting capacity of 60 tonnes. It is also suitable for applications requiring a ten-tonne axle load due to it having just one engine. This axle load figure includes the crane’s 20 tonne hook block. The crane’s boom has a minimum slewing angle of 21 degrees when fully extended.

Tadano said that these attributes make it a good match for Hellmich Kranservice, which, in addition to general crane rental, carries out work in the chemical and industrial construction sectors where a crane that can operate in spaces with low ceilings was required.

“Now, with a three-axle crane and long main boom, we can reach where we couldn’t before,” said René Hellmich, managing director of Hellmich Kranservice. “This is also a result of the compact design. In addition,  we benefit from the high telescopic lifting capacity - especially in industrial plants.”
