The AC 2.040-1 is a new 40 tonne capacity all terrain crane from Tadano.

Preliminary information indicates a main boom of 35.2 metres and a maximum system length of 44.2 metres.

It is the first new crane jointly developed by Tadano and Demag engineers since the acquisition of the latter by the former. ICST had a preview during a customer event at the Zweibrücken plant in Germany in early October. An official launch will be held in December and deliveries will start in 2022.

At the preview the manufacturer said the new two axle all terrain combines the best know-how from Demag and Tadano teams and shows what the company called the joint DNA of the new all terrain crane family. This will include the same cabins, the same control system (IC-1 Plus), and other technologies, including the Surround View System and the IC-1 Remote telematics system.

Look out for more details as they become available at internationalcranes.media and in the magazine.
