Tadano all terrain for Germany
By Niamh Marriott11 February 2022
Germany-based Heinrichs and Co has added a Tadano 100 tonne capacity ATF 100G-4 all terrain crane to its fleet. It will be used primarily as a taxi crane in East Westphalia.
The company already has a large fleet of Tadano models from 40 to 220 tonnes capacity. This latest addition closes a capacity gap for Heinrichs.
“The ATF 100G-4 will allow us to be even more flexible when it comes to accepting orders. It’s compact and powerful, so it really is the perfect taxi crane,” said company owner Thomas Heinrichs.
The 4-axle crane can carry a 7.6 tonne counterweight without boom extension or a 6 tonne counterweight with an 18 metre double-folding jib. With the help of this boom extension, the crane has a maximum roller height of 72.5 metres and a maximum possible outreach of 58 metres.
The crane is 13 metres long and 2.75 metres wide. It has an asymmetric outrigger base control and the outrigger beams can each be extended individually, which allows the crane to adapt to the crane site. At the same time, the control also ensures that the maximum possible lifting capacity is available depending on the position of the supports and the superstructure.
Heinrichs said, “We want to use the crane primarily for moving machinery, as an auxiliary crane or in prefabricated construction. On the latter construction sites, the second boom extension with integrated winch is particularly helpful, because it allows us to lift the concrete parts with just a single machine and turn them however we like. And thanks to the crane’s reach, this is possible even for larger structures. This makes it even easier for us to plan assignments and meet our customers’ needs.”
