France’s first AC 55-3 to Mediaco
By Alex Dahm18 September 2018
French crane rental major Mediaco has taken delivery of the first Demag AC 55-3 all terrain crane in the country.
Frédéric Gilbert, Mediaco chief operations officer in North of France, said, “We ordered several Demag AC 55-3 cranes because this particular model is a great fit for so many different applications. It has an impressive, 50 metre main boom, which is the longest of any 3-axle crane models, and its compact design makes it easy to get around a congested city. Also very important for us, this crane is roadable with all its counterweight in the 12 tonne axle load limit. We’re looking forward to getting this new machine out in the field.”
Terex, manufacturer of the Demag crane, said Mediaco will add more AC 55-3s soon to make a total of 20, helping to swell the 600-unit fleet.
