The 220-tonne lifting capacity unit also features a hill-start assistant and free-swing function, in addition to drive and power driving programmes. The ATF‑220‑5.1 is more economical, quieter and more comfortable on the road than its predecessor, the crane manufacturer said.

The five-axle crane is the strongest in its class, Tadano added. With 23.5 tonnes of counterweight it can lift up to 13.8 tonnes at its maximum boom extension.

Gebrüder Wöhrl Grundbau’s David Wöhrl, said: “Even with a large outreach, the crane still offers excellent power, and the lifting capacities are more than sufficient for the type of work we do. All things considered, this class of crane makes us even faster and more independent when it comes to meeting our customers’ needs.”

The crane is particularly suited to work on civil engineering construction sites, where materials and construction machines have to be lifted into and out of pits over long distances. Gebrüder Wöhrl Grundbau will also use the crane for positioning large manholes and backfilling excavation pits.
