New Demag AC 250-5 all terrain crane for Sälzer Autokrane und Transporte

The team at Dortmund-based Sälzer Autokrane & Transporte has clearly acquired a taste for Demag: Not only did the company already have a Demag® AC 40 City, an AC 100-4L, and an AC 200-1 in its fleet, but it has also put a brand new Demag AC 250-5 all terrain crane into operation now. The new Demag crane was handed over by Tadano Demag Sales Manager Helge Prüfer to the company’s two general managers, Rene Sälzer and his brother Nico.

“From experience, we know that Demag cranes are extremely reliable. And this played a key role in our decision to acquire the new AC 250-5, which was necessary in order to ensure that we’d remain competitive in the medium and long terms,” both report. The two characteristics of the AC 250-5 that they found especially compelling were its compact design and extraordinary maneuverability – two important aspects for a company that frequently tackles jobs at tight work sites. The crane also shines with its innovative IC‑1 Plus control system in this context, as the system enables it to always take advantage of the maximum available lifting capacity when the outriggers are extended in an asymmetrical configuration.

Sälzer will be using its new Demag AC 250-5 primarily to install prefab concrete elements and take care of industrial assembly projects. In addition, it will also be used for hydropower projects, machine relocation services, and other handling work. It is also worth mentioning that additional reinforcements for the Sälzer fleet are already being incorporated: A Tadano HK 40 crane has already been delivered, and a Demag AC 60-3 will follow in the second quarter of 2021.
