“We were looking for a crane that would be able to safely and reliably lift heavy building materials even across long distances,” said Heupel’s managing director Bernd Heupel.

“When we came across the Tadano AC 3.055-1 with its 50 meter main boom and its ability to lift loads at a radius of up to 38 meters, it was as though it had been made for us specifically.”

The AC 3.055-1 was handed over by Tadano sales manager Helge Prüfer in Zweibrücken.

“We already had an ATF 35 and an ATF 40G-2 in our fleet, and they both delivered perfect performance throughout all their years of service,” he continued. “That’s why we knew that we couldn’t go wrong with Tadano.”
