Canadian rental company Modern Crane has taken delivery of a 300 tonne Demag AC 300-6 All Terrain crane, the first in Canada.
The six axle AC 300-6 has an 80 metre main boom plus a 21 metre bi-fold extension, with up to 40 degrees of offset and can handle up to 15 tonnes on its fully extended main boom. It was sold and delivered by the local Demag distributor Cropac Equipment and will be used to assemble and dismantle tower cranes.
Modern Crane vice president of sales Aaron Hanna said: “The crane has the reach we need, and it is easy to set up on job sites where there are potentially impeding obstacles.”
Cropac Equipment president Bill Finkle added: “We expect this crane to be popular throughout the region for a long time to come.”
Established in 1962, Modern Crane is a division of family owned heavy haulage and concrete pump company Pumpcrete, and is based in Milton, Ontario with three other branches in Niagara Falls, Kitchener and London, Ontario. The company’s fleet ranges from a 17 tonne Tadano to a 500 tonne Liebherr LTM 1500.
