Swiss crane service provider Interkran has received its second Demag AC 300-6 all terrain crane.

Swiss crane service provider Interkran had already taken delivery of a Demag AC 100-4L, so its new Demag AC 300-6 is now the second all terrain crane from Zweibrücken to be added to its fleet. The crane was received by Interkran General Manager Tony Teixeira and handed over by Terex Cranes Senior Sales Manager of Germany, Austria and Switzerland Christian Kassner.

"The performance data for the two cranes definitely made a compelling case, so we just went ahead and ordered both of them," Teixeira said.

In the case of the AC 300-6, he was particularly impressed by the unit's load chart. For example, the crane can lift up to 16 tons (15 t) with its 262 ft. (80-m) main boom fully extended. This makes it the ideal machine for erecting tower cranes, among other applications. In addition to this, the crane offers the longest reach of its class on the market with a grand 393 ft. (119.80 m), which also proved to be a decisive factor in Teixeira's purchase decision.
