Neeb adds Demag AC 500-8

Wuppertal, Germany-based crane service provider Neeb has acquired a new AC 500-8 all-terrain crane from Demag.

Armin Neeb, general manager at the company, said of the acquisition: “There were several reasons why we decided on the Demag AC 500-8, with one of them being the fact that the crane is the most compact eight-axle unit of its class thanks to a carrier length of just over 17 m.

“Together with a maximum system length of over 145 m, this made the unit not only incredibly versatile, but also perfect for our purposes – especially whenever large lifting capacities are required in tight spaces.”

Neeb added that the crane’s IC-1 Plus control system is advantageous as it calculates the crane’s lifting capacity for every boom position as a function of the superstructure’s slewing angle in real time, making it possible to achieve increased lifting capacity.
