March 21 - Albuquerque, US based Crane Service Inc. has added a new 250-tonne capacity Terex AC 250-1 all-terrain crane to its fleet.
The new crane, equipped with an offset hydraulic jib, was deployed into service immediately in Abilene, Texas. It hoisted down a neon sign from the Bank of America building - the tallest office in Abilene - requiring 85 m of boom and jib.
According to Crane Service president Scott Wilson, the AC 250-1 fills a gap in the company's product line enabling it to better-serve customers across the US Greater Southwest: "An increasing number of our customers now have heavy lifts and need longer boom options. This crane will enable us to meet this need."
The Terex AC 250-1 comes equipped with an 80 m pinned boom, a 113 m maximum system length, including up to 36 m extendable swing-away jib. According to Terex, the 6-axle crane has the most compact working area (outrigger base and tail radius) in its class.
The AC 250-1 joins a recently purchased Terex AC100/4L all-terrain crane in the Crane Services fleet.
