“With this acquisition, CraneWorks now has 370 machines in North America, including 46 Terex and Demag cranes,” said Keith Ayers, CEO of CraneWorks Inc. “This Demag AC 220-5 crane joins the Terex AC 100/4L unit we recently added to our rental fleet.”
First unveiled in 2016, the five-axle Demag AC 220-5 crane reduces operational and maintenance costs through its single-engine concept with start-stop functionality and intelligent motor management system. The long 256-ft. main boom can be extended to a full 325 feet with jib extensions. Other features include all-axle steering, independent rear-axle steering, and a dynamic launch control that helps the operator position the crane in confined spaces. One of the most compact cranes in its class, the AC 220-5 has a 10-foot-wide, 48-foot-long frame, ideal for navigating through confined areas.
The crane is also equipped with the Demag IC-1 Plus control system, which is designed to provide the crane’s maximum allowable lifting capacity, based on the slewing angle, for every crane configuration. The new control system no longer limits the maximum lifting capacity to a pre-calculated, 360° load chart, which was based on the most unstable position of the crane. Instantaneous capacity calculations allow customers to take full advantage of the maximum lifting capacity available at any given slewing position for any crane configuration.
