Qwest takes delivery of Demag AC 300-6 all terrain crane

Australian company Qwest Crane Hire recently invested in a new Demag AC 300-6 all terrain crane to increase its capabilities and place it within the heavy lift market within the Central Queensland region.

Grant French, one of the owners of Qwest, works within the business, day in day out as the Operations Manager, overseeing all areas of the business. “The business prides itself on working in all aspects of the crane supply market, including everything from residential, commercial construction but with a primary focus within the Mining and Industry Sector,” said French.

The Demag AC 300-6 is the first crane of its size in the Demag range equipped with a luffing jib. This new 6-axle all terrain crane delivers strength, reach and versatility needed for accomplishing the most demanding jobs at lower operational and transporting costs than similar models in its class. “As a rule, we run Demags, and we already have five Demag all terrains in the fleet, ranging from 100t to 220t. The new AC 300-6 is a big step up in all terrains and will be an ideal addition to the fleet. It provides the extra capacity we’ve been missing,” said French.

“The support from Demag and its key personnel like James Greenwood and Joe Arena has always been excellent and with Tadano and Demag now under the one umbrella, and with such a strong focus on product support, we are even more confident in our latest acquisition and we are already exploring the next addition with Tadano Demag,” said French.
