Hölzl Kran receive new Tadano truck-mounted crane

Officials from Tadano and Hölzl Kran stand in front of the crane services company's new Tadano truck-mounted crane.

German company Hölzl Kran has purchased a new Tadano truck-mounted crane in a bid to expand its fleet capacity.

Taking stock of its new Tadano HK 4.050-1 recently, Hölzl Kran chose the new machine thanks to its efficiency and applicability in a wide range of tasks.

Managing director of the Bavaria-based crane services provider Walter Hölzl was effusive in his praise for the company’s new machine, highlighting three key reasons to invest in the crane.

“For one thing, in its powerful 32-tonne configuration, the machine can be driven on public roads anywhere in Europe without a special permit,” he said. “For another, it really comes into its own in tight spaces thanks to its space-saving, flexible H-style outriggers that offer five different outrigger base settings.”

Hölzl also spoke highly of the crane’s practicality, labelling it “really simple and intuitive to operate”.

“For a fully trained crane operator, everyday tasks like deploying the outriggers, adding and removing counterweight, and setting the configuration are pretty much self-explanatory,” he said.

Tadano’s HK 4.050-1 crane features a main boom length of up to 35.2 metres with a nine-metre boom extension, a maximum lifting radius of 40 metres, and a maximum tip height of 48 metres. Powered by a Cummins engine with an 8×4 driving speed, the crane is highly manoeuvrable because of its tridem rear axle with a steered trailing axe, reducing the truck crane’s overall turning radius.

Taking delivery of the crane from Tadano’s Area Sales Manager Hans Asam in Lauf, Hölzl Kran’s managing director discussed the immediate application of his new truck crane in a variety of industries.

“That includes jobs on more distant work sites – another thing for which it’s absolutely ideal,” he said, “especially as it has lower fuel consumption and is less prone to carrier wear than an all-terrain crane.”

The HK 4.050-1 is Hölzl Kran’s latest addition to its Tadano contingent in its fleet, already holding an ATF 70G-4, an ATF 100G-4, and its flagship crane, an ATF220G-5.

The Bavaria-based crane services company has been in operation since 1949, and offers a range of rigging equipment, EWPs, and loader cranes.
