Danese Autogru adds to fleet

September 11 - Montanara, Italy-based Danese Autogru has added a 220-tonne capacity Demag AC 220-5 all terrain crane to its fleet.

The AC 220-5 features a main boom length of 78 m and a maximum system length of 99 m.

"This larger Demag five-axle crane is easy to transport from job to job and rigs quickly; those are qualities that will help our team be efficient for our customers," explained Giancarlo Danese, owner of Danese Autogru.

The five-axle crane features the Demag IC-1 Plus control system that calculates real-time lifting capacities, which, according to Terex, allows the crane to perform jobs usually reserved for larger machines.

The Demag single engine concept, with start and stop machine functions, reduces idle times and total engine hours contributing to the reduction of fuel costs and preserving the crane's residual value, says Terex.
