German crane rental company Autokran Wissel picked a Terex Explorer 5600 all terrain crane as part of its fleet upgrade programme.
Company owner Bernhard Wissel said he chose the 5600 for quality and reliability, plus its “compact design and great maneuverability, which makes it perfect for our needs.” Wissel collected the crane with Klaus Kliesch, crane operator, from the factory in Zweibrücken. Next day it went to work on its first assignment, to assist with the erection of a tower crane.
Bavaria-headquartered Autokran Wissel has been going for more than 50 years. It has a fleet of mobile cranes and aerial work platform for rent and offers transportation services. Crane capacity is available up to 200 tonnes and loads can be lifted to a height of 90 metres.
