German transport company Marcus Transport has taken delivery of a 160 tonne capacity truck mounted Idrogru KT160.29 telescopic crane.

The model is the first one to be delivered to Germany. The KT160.29 is mounted on a four-axle Scania chassis. The Italian crane has pick and carry capabilities and is fitted with independent hydraulic cylinders, so users can telescope the boom when raising loads, the manufacturer said.

Idrogru manufacturers telescopic boom cranes from 90 to 260 tonnes capacity, with reach up to 40 metres (excluding the lattice jib).
