Tadano AC 5.120-1 expands Dutch company’s construction operations

P&K has acquired a new Tadano AC 5.120-1.

Netherlands-based crane company P&K B.V. has acquired a Tadano AC 5.120-1 to further expands its operations in the construction industry.

Taking delivery of the machine at Tadano’s Netherlands branch in Purmerend, Mark Plas – Managing Director of P&K B.V. – labelled the machine as an “absolute powerhouse of a crane”.

“What really clinched it for us was the crane’s impressive lifting capacities, both when carrying its full counterweight and when operated within its 12-tonne axle load limit,” he said. “With the Tadano Smart Chart system in the mix, the lifting capacities are simply phenomenal, making the Tadano AC 5.120-1 an absolute powerhouse in its class.”

Tadano’s five-axle all-terrain crane features a maximum lifting capacity of 120 tonnes at a radius of 2.5m, and 1.2 tonnes at its maximum radius of just under 60m. Furthermore, the machine holds a main boom ranging from 11.4m through to 60m in length, with a range of jib extensions giving the machine the capacity to reach a maximum tip height of 96m.

The carrier of the Tadano AC 5.120-1 is powered by an EU Stage V Mercedes Benz engine and holds a maximum output of 390kW. Additionally, the crane ordered by P&K features a 10x8x10 gear box, 16,00R25 tyres, a storage box, and remote-control capabilities from outside the superstructure, equipping it well for its use in the construction industry.

The arrival of the AC 5.120-1 is the latest of a number of Tadano cranes operating in the Dutch company’s fleet, with Plas effusive in his praise for the service and quality provided by the global crane manufacturers.

“We’ve had quite a few Tadano cranes in use here over many years,” said Plas, “so we trust Tadano for quality machines and excellent service.”

P&K Kraanbedrijf B.V. is an Enter, Netherlands-based crane services company. Established in 1988, the firm operates in the construction and infrastructure industries in the immediate region and beyond.
