Auto-Krandienst Jaromin gains Terex Explorer 5500 AT

With its acquisition of a Terex Explorer 5500 all-terrain crane, Oberhausen, Germany-based crane rental company Autokran-Dienst Jaromin has expanded the Terex stock in its fleet to a total of five machines.
General manager Olaf Jaromin said, “Together with the asymmetrical outrigger configuration and fine-tuned partial counterweight options, the IC-1 Plus control system makes it possible to have just the right lifting capacity for each individual project. That enables us to take fewer counterweights with us – and sometimes none at all – for many construction site projects.”
The Explorer 5500 is also able to travel with a 10 tonne axle load. This results in shorter waiting times for travel permits and allows customers’ needs to be fulfilled more quickly.
When configuring its Explorer 5500, Jaromin focused not only on technical performance by selecting a hydraulically offsettable main boom extension and a counterweight detection system, but also on crane operator comfort by choosing an engine-independent heater and an air conditioning system.
Jaromin’s fleet ranges from mini cranes, to mobile construction cranes, to crawler cranes. Four Terex and Demag cranes – a Demag AC 30, a Demag AC 40, a Challenger 3180, and an Explorer 5500 – can be found among the company’s 20 mobile cranes with lifting capacities of up to 250 tonnes.
