CRANE SERVICE INC. ADDS ANOTHER TEREX® CRANE TO ITS FLEET
Albuquerque, USA, March, 2013 – Albuquerque-based Crane Service, Inc. has taken delivery of a new 250t capacity class Terex® AC 250-1 all-terrain crane. Equipped with all available options, including offset hydraulic jib, it made its debut in Abilene, Texas, hoisting down a neon sign from the Bank of America building, the tallest office building in Abilene, which required 85 m (280ft) of boom and jib.
The AC 250-1 joins a recently purchased AC100/4L which, according to Crane Service, Inc. President, Scott Wilson, was one of the reasons why the AC 250-1 was the preferred choice of the heavy hoisting specialist. He comments, “We decided on this model based on our relationship with Terex and our positive experience of the AC100/4L.”
He continues, “We were impressed by the main boom combinations and the 80 m (262 ft) full power boom was a definite advantage. Not to mention the crane’s impressive lifting capacities across the board.”
“Its exceptional maneuverability and flexibility were another benefit. The counterweight configurations/options make it operationally and logistically very friendly, especially here in the United States, and, of course, the cost per tonnage capacity is a real boon.”
The AC 250-1 fills a gap in the company’s product line-up enabling it to better serve its customers across the greater southwest. “There is a market for this size of crane,” says Scott Wilson. “An increasing number of our customers now have heavy lifts and need longer boom options. This crane will enable us to meet this need.”
About the Terex AC 250-1
With an 80 m (262 ft) pinned boom, the AC 250-1 all-terrain crane has the longest main boom roadable within a 12 t (13.2 US t) axle load. It features a 113 m (370 ft) maximum system length including up to 36 m (118 ft) extendable swing-away jib. It is also the most compact 6-axle crane and has the most compact working area (outrigger base and tail radius) in its class.
