The model has already been put to work erecting several tower cranes around the former building of the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Italy.

“It’s a cutting-edge crane. Despite all its innovations, it’s tremendously easy to operate at the work site,” said Andrea Boiano, chief executive of Boiano Service.

“Add to that an 80 meter-long boom, an enormous lifting capacity, and the option of quickly disassembling the boom in order to reduce axle loads – not to mention the incredibly compact dimensions for a crane of this capacity class - it shouldn’t be surprising that it was our crane of choice.”

“The seven-axle AC 7.450-1 is as compact as a six-axle crane and as powerful as an eight-axle crane. That’s not something you can find anywhere else on the market right now,” he said.

The company’s fleet includes other Tadano (formerly Demag) cranes, notably an AC 220-5 and an AC 100-4.
