German crane and transport company Felleiter has taken delivery of a 70 tonne Tadano ATF 70G-4 All Terrain crane.
The four axle ATF 70G-4 has a 44 metre main boom and a 16 metre bi-fold swingaway extension, providing a tip height of 63 metres and maximum radius of 50 metres. It is the second ATF 70G-4 in the company’s fleet, and the fourth Tadano crane overall, adding to a 35 tonne ATF 30-2L and a 110 tonne ATF 110G-5. The crane’s first job involved lifting a belt conveyor into a stone breaking plant.
Managing director Klaus Felleiter said: “There is nothing better than an ATF 70G-4, except for two ATF 70G-4s! It is quite flexible - wherever a two axle crane can go, it goes too. And it has excellent lifting capacities. As we are receiving orders with ever increasing dimensions, another Tadano ATF 70 in the taxi version is just the right thing for us.”
“For us, the 70 tonne crane is something like a universal unit. We are able to take along a lot of accessories, are ready to work immediately, and easily meet the 10 tonne maximum limits for the axle loads. So, all in all, the ATF 70 is truly an economical crane.”
Established in 1948, family owned Felleiter is based in Treuchtlingen, southern Germany. It runs a fleet of All Terrain and Rough Terrain cranes with capacities ranging from 35 to 120 tonnes.
