Commenting on the purchase, Hölzl Kran’s managing director Walter Hölzl said, “In its 32 tonne configuration, the machine can be driven on public roads anywhere in Europe without a special permit.

“It really comes into its own in tight spaces thanks to its space-saving, flexible H-style outriggers that offer five different outrigger base settings.

“It’s really simple and intuitive to operate – for a fully trained crane operator, everyday tasks like deploying the outriggers, adding and removing counterweight, and setting the configuration are pretty much self-explanatory.”

Hölzl Kran will use its new crane for a wide range of tasks.

Hölzl said, “That includes jobs on more distant work sites – another thing for which it’s absolutely ideal, especially as it has lower fuel consumption and is less prone to carrier wear than an all terrain crane.”

The truck is the latest addition to the Tadano contingent of his vehicle fleet, which alsoincludes an ATF 70G-4, an ATF 100G-4 and an ATF 220 G-5.
