ZWEIBRÜCKEN, January 12th, 2017 – John Sutch Cranes, Winner of the 2014 Liverpool Echo Business Award, has taken delivery of a new Demag AC 100-4L all terrain crane. It marks the return of the Demag brand for the family run business which operates throughout the North West and works on national projects nationwide.

Earlier acquisitions include a Terex AC 30 City, a Terex AC 40 City and a Terex Challenger 3160 which operate from the company’s two depots in Liverpool and Manchester. In the 100-tonne capacity class, the firm’s latest Demag crane enjoys the benefit of a 2,55 m wide chassis, a boom length of 59.4 metres and comes complete with the IC1-Plus control system. It allows slewing angle related capacity calculations. It also takes into account the outriggers configuration.

Managing Director, John Sutch comments: “This was a welcome opportunity to revisit the Demag brand as part of our ongoing investment programme. We looked at alternatives, and felt the AC100-4L was the right crane for us.” He adds: “It’s compact, versatile and incorporates all the latest developments and technical advancements recently introduced by the manufacturer. It’s a new generation of crane and very much looks the part in its smart yellow and blue livery.”

Tim Leech Terex Regional Sales Manager says: “I am delighted to have had this opportunity to supply a class-leading machine to an important and well-known customer that is continually improving its fleet to better service its customers.”  

Established in 1990, John Sutch Cranes operates across a wide range of industry sectors. Recent projects include the Thermal Power Station in Runcorn and the Battle of the Atlantic Commemoration in Liverpool.
