Cosmo Cranes recently commissioned two new Demag® all terrain cranes, a Demag AC 300-6 and a Demag AC 130-5. Both cranes are equipped with the innovative IC-1 Plus control system that provides the operator with access to real-time lifting information. The cranes have already been used on several projects throughout Australia.
According to Cosmo Cranes Owners, Josh & Jonathan Handley, owning and operating a fleet of cranes with advanced technology helps his team be more responsive to the needs of their customers and improves the efficiency of their overall operations. “Over the last 16 years, we’ve built a reputation on being experts in our field by performing quality work safely,” he explained. “The machinery we use, as well as the distributors and manufacturers we choose to partner with help us get to where we are today. We’ve always trusted the Demag team to deliver quality equipment and outstanding service support. The technology built into these two new cranes will help us continue to meet the needs of our clients.”
Cosmo Cranes’ new 5-axle Demag AC 130-5 all terrain crane’s compact design allows it to navigate tight jobsites while still being able to lift loads up to 130 tonnes (140 USt). It has a main boom length of 60 meters (197 feet) and a maximum system length of 86.5 meters (283.8). The larger 6-axle Demag AC 300-6 crane has a 300 tonne (350 USt) lift capacity, main boom length of 80 meters (262.5 ft) and a maximum system length of 119.9 meters (390.4 ft).
“Our mobile cranes are perfect for restrictive spaces,” added Handley. “They have the lifting capabilities and maneuverability needed to get the job done, and our operators can expertly navigate into the trickiest nooks and crannies at our customers’ worksites.”
