Hungarian crane rental company Dunagep has taken delivery of a new 220 tonne Demag AC 220-5.
The new five axle AC 220-5 features an eight section 78 metre main boom and has been specified with the 11.4 to 21 metre hydraulic luffing bi-fold swingaway extension which offsets up to 40 degrees, and offers a maximum tip height of 102 metres.
Budapest based Dunagep has been buying Demag cranes since 1993 and runs a fleet that includes two AC 55-3, one AC 80-2, one AC 160-5 and one AC 500-2. The new crane is targeted at machinery and industrial installations and refinery work.
Dunagep technical director Troppert Ferenc said: “What particularly impressed us about our latest Demag crane were the 78 metre long main boom and the strength of the crane, particularly in the upper lifting capacity. Also the hydraulic extension saves our teams a lot of time on the construction site and thus makes our work particularly cost effective. We also like the new IC 1 Plus control system and the possibility of working with asymmetrical outrigger configurations."
