When Demag showcased its AC 25 City in 1996, heads turned everywhere in the industry: It was more compact than any other mobile crane before it, and yet it featured powerful performance characteristics and only needed one single cab for both traveling and crane work. Today’s brand new AC 45 City is no slouch when living up to the expectations set by its predecessor. Quite the contrary, in fact: It can do everything even better. See for yourself.
With a length of 8.69 meters, a width of 2.55 meters, and a height of exactly 3.16 meters, the Demag AC 45 City has the most compact dimensions in its class. In addition, its carrier length of only 7.2 m makes it best in class in this category as well.
With its short base boom of just 7.8 m and options like the boom head traverse for increased lifting heights, the AC 45 City crane is also able to work in buildings with a relatively low clearance while still keeping its boom at a steep angle, enabling it to lift heavy loads indoors.
Together with the IC-1 Plus control system, the new Demag crane is able to work with asymmetric and infinite outrigger positioning, meaning that the AC 45 City can be perfectly adjusted for all space conditions and load requirements within crane’s lifting capacity.
The 3-axle unit does not weigh more than 34 tonnes even when outfitted with its full equipment, meaning that it remains significantly under the twelve-tonne axle load limit and accordingly can get to work without the need for any additional transport vehicles. And when using a reduced counterweight, the crane even falls below the ten-tonne limit.
