June 26 - Terex Cranes distributor CraneWorks has taken delivery of a Demag AC 220-5, which Terex claims is one of the first Demag five-axle all terrain cranes in the USA.

The AC 220-5 all terrain crane features a single-engine concept with start-stop functionality and intelligent motor management system, the IC-1 Plus control system, as well as a 256 ft (78 m) main boom which can be extended to 325 ft (99 m) with jib extensions.

According to Terex, the all terrain crane is highly manoeuvrable, with all-axle steering, independent rear-axle steering and a dynamic launch control feature that helps the operator position the crane in confined spaces.

"With this acquisition, CraneWorks now has 370 machines in North America, including 46 Terex and Demag cranes," said Keith Ayers, ceo of CraneWorks.
