Wiesbauer buys Demag AT crane
By Christian Shelton17 July 2017
German crane service provider Wiesbauer is continuing to expand the Demag contingent in its fleet. After buying two Demag AC 160-5 cranes in December 2016, and an AC 700-9 prior to that, the company has now purchased an AC 500-8 all terrain crane.

“As far as we’re concerned, the Demag AC 500-8 is the only crane in its class that can be transported effectively because it can travel without exceeding the 12-tonne axle load limit,” commented Thomas Wiesbauer, general manager at Wiesbauer. “On top of that, the fact that the boom is 56 metres long means that the crane combines the longest boom on the market with excellent lifting capacities. We already had the preceding model and were very happy with it. In fact, our crane operators also let us know that they thought it was a good idea to get another AC 500-8. They work reliably and provide outstanding performance under all conditions.”
