“It almost seems as though the Tadano AC 4.080-1 was made for us specifically – the cutting-edge crane is simply perfect for our fleet,” explains Manfred Härzschel, founder of the Cloppenburg-based crane company of the same name, while picking up his new crane. And he is right in saying that the new AC 4.080-1 is a state-of-the-art machine – from its compliance with EU Stage V emission standards, through the innovative IC‑1 Plus crane control system, all the way to an outstanding lifting capacity, the crane is clearly ahead of the pack. That is why the people at Härzschel did not wait long and instead made sure to get their hands on the world’s very first delivery of the brand new model, which was handed over by Tadano Sales Manager Thorsten Dietzel.
It is worth pointing out that the Tadano brand has been closely tied to Härzschel ever since the latter was founded in 1997. In fact, the company’s fleet is made up entirely of Tadano cranes. “The reliable and powerful cranes made by them have played an indispensable role in the successful growth and development of our company from the very beginning,” Manfred Härzschel reports.
Throughout the years, Härzschel has diversified its operations and currently also operates a high-bay warehouse with state-of-the-art equipment and around 2000 pallet storage locations for short-term and long-term storage that are available to both industrial and private customers. With its comprehensive service portfolio, which includes obtaining permits for road and transport operations, road securing service, construction site inspection and project support for industrial and construction companies Härzschel has earned a sterling reputation as a reliable partner for customers across the entire region. Härzschel has further extended its service range by the rental of truck-mounted aerial work platforms.
All-rounder for a broad range of applications
“The new Tadano AC 4.080-1 will be invaluable to us as we keep expanding our business activities in a number of areas,” says Manfred Härzschel confidently before adding that he is planning to use the new crane as a versatile all-rounder for private customers and industrial projects. And he did not wait long to stick to that plan: The Tadano AC 4.080-1 went to its first work site on the very first business day after it was delivered.
