March 31 - Vätterbygdens Kran of Jonkoping, Sweden, has added a 250-tonne capacity Demag AC 250-5 all terrain crane to its fleet.

The crane has a main boom length of 70 m, a 21 m folding swing away jib and features the IC-1 Plus control system, which calculates lifting capacities for every position of the boom, subject to the slewing angle of the superstructure. According to Terex, Vätterbygdens Kran has already put the Demag crane to work lifting and placing a transformer.

The Demag AC 250-5 crane is now the largest model in Vätterbygdens Kran's fleet of ten mobile cranes. Terex claims that the addition of the AC 250-5 enables the company to take on larger projects.
