Managing Director Stefan Schmidbauer collected the crane in Zweibrücken, Germany, and provided even more insights into the decision.

“We’ve had nothing but good experiences with our two other AC 4.080-1 units, so deciding on a third was actually really easy,” said Stefan.

According to a Tadano statement, the the AC 4.080-1 is versatile machine, as the team at Schmidbauer knows from experience.

Schmidbauer considers the AC 4.080-1’s compact design and lifting capacities with a 60m main boom to key structural advantages.

“The AC 4.080-1 is extremely versatile as a taxi crane, which makes it a remarkably cost-effective machine for a large number of jobs,” said Stefan.

Stefan ordered the flex base and surround view systems; the flex base will make it possible to extend the crane’s outriggers to any point within their available range, while the surround view systems will make it easy to position the crane at work in tight spaces.

The AC 4.080-1 includes a maximum lifting capacity of 80-tonne, with a maximum tip height of 69m and a full load radius of 48m.

The carrier can travel up to speeds of 85kph with a length of 12,810mm and a width of 2,750mm.

The crane can carry up to 9.3-tonne of counterweight with 12-tonne axle loads.

Schmidbauer is planning to use its new AC 4.080-1 as an all-rounder for a variety of jobs that include; urban lifts; erecting concrete and prefab components, trench and utility line construction, antenna erection and container lifting.
