ACT Crane & Heavy Equipment is adding ten Demag and Terex cranes

ZWEIBRÜCKEN – March 16, 2018 – Saudi Arabian crane rental company, Arabian Consolidated Trading (ACT Crane & Heavy Equipment), is expanding its crane fleet through a recent order for four Demag® AC 160-5, two AC 300-6 all terrain cranes and four Terex® RT 90 rough terrain cranes. The new units help support ACT customers around its locations Jubail Industrial City and Yanbu Al-Bahr.

“We are proud to serve the team at ACT Crane & Heavy Equipment,” says Deepak Jain, senior sales manager for Terex Cranes in the Middle East. “They are an organization that demands quality from their people and the equipment they use every day. Those high expectations help them achieve great things for their customers and  make them  business leaders in their region.”

ACT Crane & Heavy Equipment’s new 5-axle Demag AC 160-5 all terrain cranes have a 160-tonne (180 US ton) lifting capacity and a maximum system length of 95 m (311.7 ft). They are the most compact cranes in their capacity class with a total length of 14 m (46 ft) and a carrier width of 2.75 m (9 ft) and deliver excellent maneuverability with all-axle steering, independent rear axle steering, and dynamic launch control. The six axle Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain crane, boasting a 300 t (350 US ton) classification, features an 80 m (262.5 ft) main boom. This new 6-axle Demag all terrain crane delivers strength, reach and versatility needed for accomplishing the most demanding jobs at lower operational and transporting costs than similar models in its class.

The Terex RT 90 rough terrain cranes have an 86 tonne (95 US ton) rated capacity, a maximum boom length of 47 m (154 ft) and a tip height of 50 m (164 ft).
