The used crane was refurbished at Tadano’s Lauf facility.

Read about how this rise in repairing and reusing cranes can save money here.

Krandienst F&H managing director Frank Menko said, “We’ve had a 220 tonne capacity Tadano unit hard at work for a long time now, and we’ve always been able to fully depend on it and have had nothing but good experiences with it. That’s why deciding on this used ATF 180G-5 was tremendously easy – especially since we knew that it had undergone a thorough overhaul in Lauf and was in perfect condition.”

The company will also be using the 180 tonne capacity crane as a smaller crane without a counterweight transport vehicle for many of its projects.

“This second-hand machine came with a tremendous price advantage,” Menko concluded.

The crane will be used predominantly for concrete assembly projects. Its first job is already scheduled and the crane will be soon be heading to a work site in Göttingen, central Germany
