Ireland-based crane service provider Allen Mobile Cranes has taken delivery of a 220-tonne capacity Tadano AC 220-5 all-terrain crane.

Robbie Allen, owner of Allen Mobile Cranes, explained the decision behind the purchase: “We specialise primarily in tower crane rentals and sales. With its main boom length of 78 m, the AC 220-5 is just a superlative choice for erecting our tower cranes, making it the perfect crane for us.”

Allen added that the crane’s IC-1 Plus control system ensures that the crane operator can take advantage of the full lifting capacity even when working with asymmetrically deployed outriggers at tight work sites.
