Crane service provider Eisele, based in Maintal, Germany, has taken delivery of two Terex AC 140 Compact all terrain cranes and a Challenger 3180.

A handover ceremony was held at the Terex Cranes factory in Zweibrücken, Germany.

The 140 tonne capacity AC 140 Compact has a 60 metre main boom and can carry an 8.3 tonne counterweight while still operating within a 12 tonne axle load limit, the manufacturer said. The Challenger 3180 has a 50 m main boom and a lifting capacity of 60 tonnes. All-wheel steering with the 6 x 6 x 6 drive/steer configuration option was specified, the manufacturer added.

Rocco Schimmel, engineer consultant at Eisele, said, “The AC 140 is the most compact 5-axle crane out there. This comes in real handy when you have precious little space available at your job site. This is why we will be using these two cranes mostly for erecting tower cranes and carrying out demolition and industrial assembly work.”

Commenting on the Challenger 3180 all terrain crane, Schimmel said, “In this case, the decisive factor in the company’s purchase decision was the combination of a 50 metre-long main boom with a compact three-axle chassis. This makes the Challenger the perfect option for lighter assembly projects relatively close to our location. It’s also the perfect substitute for a larger 80 tonne crane whenever we have projects for which we just need the extra boom length, and not the actual extra lifting capacity.”
