Citing the crane’s versatility and effective performance as a taxi crane, Managing Director, Christoph Schares, said the new crane would be applied in a range of different uses, such as civil engineering projects, steel construction work, and lifts for the chemical industry.

“(The Tadano AC 4.100L-1)’s powerful lifting capacity,” he said, “combined with a 59.4m long main boom and an axle load lower than the 12-tonne limit make it an extremely cost-effective taxi crane.”

On top of its 59.4m main boom and 100-tonne capacity, the 100-tonne all-terrain crane possesses a 10m swingaway jib to provide extra lifting reach when needed. When combined with the crane’s compact dimensions of 13.37m in length, 2.55m in width, and 3.92m in height – as well as possessing the longest boom for a four axle, under 12-tonne axle load crane – the AC 4.100L-1 proves itself to be most suited for big lifts in confined spaces. This is further underscored by the crane’s maximum operating radius of 54m and, on top of its 10m swingaway jib, possesses the capacity to add extra length on to the boom by up to 27m, giving the crane a maximum tip height of 84m.

Schares’ latest addition to its fleet adds to the company’s growing number of Tadano cranes in its fleet that already includes the AC 6.300, the AC 5.160, and the 40-tonne city crane.
