GAAC Commerz has bought two more Terex cranes, less than a year after placing its first order with the manufacturer. The Spedition and Transport division of the GAAC, which offers crane rental services as one of its four fields of activity, has acquired another Terex AC 100/4L and a Terex Challenger 3160.

GAAC undertakes a lot of projects in its home city of Berlin and chose the Challenger because of its compact and lightweight design, according to Carsten Herfurth, who is part of the company's technical field staff.

The Terex Challenger 3160 is a three-axle crane with 55 tonne lifting capacity and designed for one-person operation. The Challenger's performance is further enhanced by its 50 metre boom.

The AC 100/4L also benefits from a long boom, at 59.4 m. It has a four axle carrier, which means that it can also travel through the city at any time, while its width of 2.55 m makes it just as wide as a truck.

The AC 100/4L has one of the longest system lengths (69.5 m) that can travel on four axles while complying with a 12-tonne axle load limit, Terex said. An extension can take the system length to 81.7 m while the 19 m double folding jib can be mounted directly on the telescopic boom or on an additional 8 m extension installed between the telescopic boom and the double folding jib.
