“We are dedicated to giving customers the highest quality of value-added services available,” said Michelle Grubb-Solaimani, CFO of W.O. Grubb Crane Rental. “To do that, we make it a point to carry the latest in crane innovation and the Demag AC 500-8 all terrain crane certainly fits in that category. It features industry leading innovations that will enhance the productivity of our customers. We know they will be pleased with this unit's performance.”

The Demag AC 500-8 all terrain crane has the shortest carrier length of its class and x-pattern outriggers that are designed to provide on-the-job stability. The crane also comes with the Demag sideways superlift (SSL) for a superior lifting performance, according to the manufacturer.
