The perfect 40th birthday gift

UK based rental company PP Engineering Crane Hire has taken delivery of a Demag AC 45 City crane. The Yorkshire based company has now increased their Tadano groups fleet to 13 machines.

The AC 45 City has a 31.2 meter main boom which can telescope with up to 19.7 tonnes, while a 7.1 to 13 meter off settable extension takes the maximum on board tip height to over 45 meters. The Demag AC 45 City’s compact design is another concrete advantage, as are its ability to telescope under load and its innovative IC‑1 Plus control system, which makes it possible to always take full advantage of the maximum available lifting capacity when using asymmetrical outrigger configurations – especially in combination with Flex Base, which provides an enormous competitive advantage, as it enables cranes to extend their outriggers to any point within their available range, all the way to surrounding obstacles and get the largest possible outrigger base in any scenario.

PP Engineering Crane Hire is a family run business established in 1980, when Philip Patching had a vision and PP Engineering was established. The Company prospered with his hard work and dedication along with his great technical knowledge of mobile cranes and business sense. Now in their 40th year PP Engineering now has a total of 21 cranes, and a fully qualified team with a good customer base. 

PP Engineering explained why they have chosen the Demag AC 45 City: “We have a great relationship with the team at Tadano Demag, and this new machine will have the same quality and reliability that will exceed our customers’ requirements and expectations that our other Tadano cranes have brought to our company. “

Andrew Snow of Tadano said: “We would like to thank the PP Engineering team for their continued loyalty to the Tadano Group, we are sure this crane will complement their existing fleet of cranes positively with their growing customer base.“
