I&H Kran-Transport-MontageService GmbH is a crane service company operating all over Germany with its headquarters in Espenhain near Leipzig has now added a 12th Tadano to their fleet, the ATF 220G-5 220t Metric Ton All Terrain Crane.
A significant factor adding the machine to the fleet was the performance of the 5-axle crane for I&H’s core business, concrete construction. Of course, the crane operators are also happy with the new look of the driver’s cab, as it provides various new features and maximum comfort. These include: a better panoramic view, ergonomic seats made by Recaro for an optimized seating position to prevent fatigue on long distances and the multifunction touch display which is identical with that in the superstructure cab.
The crane was put immediately into service after its delivery at the end of November 2016. According to managing member Nils Laumann, one of the special advantages of the TADANO crane is its being equipped with two engines. The new engines made by Mercedes Benz (Euromot IV, EPA Tier 4f) feature a power output of 390 kW (530 HP) for the carrier and 145 kW (197 HP) for the superstructure. Two engines give a clear indication of how much the crane is working vs driving, this leads to higher resale value.
The crane has a rugged boom with a mast length of 13.2 to 68 meters. “At such working heights, we require an especially powerful boom for lifting operations. What is especially important for us are the mechanical strength and the capability of moving the material by crane without the jib,” Nils Laumann states. And for this work, the updated 5-axle crane made by TADANO provides the ideal dimensions.
Nils Laumann adds “The service provided by TADANO is simply great.“
