German crane rental company Karl Altendorff has added a Terex AC 100/4L all terrain to its fleet.

Burkhard Fromm, owner of Berlin-based transportation and crane service provider Karl Altendorff, chose the Terex model for use on inner city projects. The four-axle crane has an overall width of 2.55 metres, making it easy to manoevre in areas where space is restricted. With an axle load limit of 12 tonnes it is also allowed to travel at any time in Berlin without the need for special permits.

Fromm took delivery of the unit at the Terex Cranes Zweibrücken facility in April together with his son Fabian and crane operator Ralf Stibbe. The new crane was soon put to use to lift a series of roof beams at an equestrian facility.

Karl Altendorff operates a fleet of knuckle boom and mobile telescopic cranes with lifting capacities up to 130 tonnes. The firm also offers special machinery, and transformer transport services.
