By Alex Dahm12 March 2008
Terex Demag has launched the 300 tonne capacity AC 300/6 telescopic wheeled mobile crane, claiming it as the most powerful mobile crane in its class.
The AC 300/6 has a 64 m (210 ft) main boom and maximum load moment is 951 tonne-metres. The new six-axle model fills the gap between the AC 250-1 and the AC 350. According to the manufacturer the 125.7 m (412 ft) system length is the longest of any six-axle mobile crane.
Superlift is optional. A height of up to 115 m (377 ft) can be achieved with a rigid extension, while the maximum 125.7 m is achieved with the luffing fly jib. When working with the folding jib, the AC 300/6 achieves a “one-of-a-kind-in-its-class” maximum system length of 84 m (276 ft) for travelling operations.
The AC 300/6 can travel within a 3 m width and 4 m height, including Superlift, a 20 m telescopic folding jib, up to 18.2 tonnes of counterweight, a three-sheave hook block and the second hoist, according to the manufacturer. Further accessories can be loaded on conventional trucks less than 2.55 m wide.
