Transport and crane service provider Otto Fischer chose a Tadano ATF 220G-5 all terrain crane to lift a bridge at the state garden show in Saxony, Germany.

Otto Fischer was contracted to carry out the logistics, construction and lifting of the bridge. The pedestrian bridge weighed 24 tonnes and the 220 tonner lifted the bridge 35 metres in the air, before placing it into position. During the lift the team had to contend with a small working area. The ATF 220G-5 was configured with its full 71 tonnes of counterweight and worked at a radius of 19 m.

Thomas Fischer, Otto Fischer managing director, said, “We are pleased to have the extremely reliable ATF 220G-5 in our fleet, it is very often in use. The ATF 220G-5 is an excellent machine in this class, due to its good load bearing capacity values.”
