Breithaupt & Philipp buys ‘compact powerhouse’

Germany-based Breithaupt & Philipp has bought a three-axle Demag AC 60-3 all-terrain crane.

The 60-tonne lifting capacity crane will be used in Magdeburg to assemble concrete, detached houses and roof trusses.

Uwe Podlech and Jens Napierala, managing directors of Breithaupt & Philipp, said: “The crane is not only particularly maneuverable and compact, but also very powerful. This makes it the ideal tool for our applications.”

The design advantages of the crane include a 50 m main boom top which that can reach over protruding edges without extension. The crane can lift loads even with asymmetrical outrigger units on tight sites using the IC1-Plus control system.
