The company chose the model for its compact design and low transport weight, which it said it useful in tight work sites and urban environments. It can also carry out a range of heavy lifts without additional accessories. The company also said it can be set up quickly and features the Tadano surround view camera system.

Welti-Furrer will be using its new Tadano AC 7.450-1 primarily to erect tower cranes and install prefab concrete elements.

Fleet manager Amos Dubacher said, “The AC 7.450-1 represents the latest state of the art in every sense of the word. And this gives it a series of advantages that no other crane in this class can offer.”

Swiss construction

Welti-Furrer has six regional locations throughout Switzerland and offer a full service from consulting through to implementation and performance. Its fleet has lifting capacities of 30 to 600 tonnes.

These include not only the new AC 7.450-1, but also eight additional Tadano and Demag cranes in the form of a TC 2800-1 lattice boom crane, one AC 200-1, two AC 350-6 and two AC 250-5 all-terrain cranes, and an AC 55 and an AC 60 City crane, with the latter two having undergone a full overhaul recently.
