Mikschl expands Demag mobile crane fleet
By Leila Steed04 November 2020
Germany-based crane services company Mikschl AutoKrane has added two new Demag cranes to its fleet.
The company purchased an AC 60-3 mobile crane and an AC 45 City crane, which has a length of 8.69 metres and a width of 2.55 metres. While the AC 45 City offers 45 tonnes of capacity, the AC 60-3 is in the 60 tonne capacity class and has a 50 metre telescopic main boom.
According to the crane services company, which was established more than 20 years ago, the AC 45 City and AC 60-3 models were chosen because of the advantages offered by Demag’s outrigger system, IC-1 Plus control system and the Flex Base feature.
Roland Mikschl, general manager at Mikschl AutoKrane, said, “These systems, especially if combined, make it possible to take advantage of the cranes’ maximum available lifting capacity regardless of the conditions.”
Mikschl Autokrane ordered the cranes after seeing them in action at a presentation event hosted by Demag.
Mikschl said, “It wasn’t an impulse purchase, of course. The cranes in our fleet belong almost exclusively to this brand, meaning that we’re very familiar with Demag cranes. Accordingly, we know that we’ve purchased very good and innovative products once again by getting these two new cranes.”
