German rental company Krandienst Gerlach has taken delivery of a 70 tonne Tadano ATF 70G-4 All Terrain crane.
The four axle ATF 70G-4 has a 52.1 metre main boom and a 16 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, providing a tip height of more than 70 metres and maximum radius of 46 metres.
Christian Gerlach of Krandienst Gerlach said: “The fact that his crane has a total weight of 40 tonnes and can meet 10 tonne axle loadings convinced us. This will reduce our costs significantly. For the ATF 70G-4, we are able to obtain a permanent driving permit for all across Germany. This allows us to be highly flexible and reactive. We will use it, among other things, for handling concrete building modules, unloading machinery, and steel erection.”
“We have a Tadano HK 40 truck crane which has been faultless, the same engineering skills, which is typical of Tadano, can also be seen in the ATF 70G-4.”
Established in 1991, Krandienst Gerlach is based in Ehrenfriedersdorf, eastern Germany. The company’s crane fleet ranges from 30 to 140 tonnes, and the company also runs a number of loader cranes and telehandlers.
