For Tony Teixeira, the General Manager of Swiss company Interkran AG, the Demag AC 100-4L is currently the best crane of its class worldwide: “The reason we decided on this crane was its extremely compact design – especially its width of only 2.55 meters. Together with a system length of up to 77 meters, which is enormous for this class, this makes the crane simply unbeatable as far as we’re concerned,” explains the Interkran general manager, who picked up the crane in Zweibrücken together with crane operators Reis Joaquim and Sandro Guiomar. The crane was handed over by Terex Cranes Senior Sales Manager for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland Christian Kassner.
Interkran will use its new acquisition primarily to erect tower cranes and as a taxi crane. “Thanks to the AC 100-4L’s large lifting capacity and new IC-1 Plus control system, we’ll even be able to forego the use of a second crane for certain lifts,” Tony Teixeira points out. The Interkran general manager mentions the extraordinary Demag quality as another one of the advantages behind the Demag AC 100-4L. Moreover, the cab design in particular appealed to him as a Porsche fan, as it was created by Porsche Engineering.
