After always using boom trucks for tree removal jobs, Denilson Roque, owner of Dennis Tree Service in Sudbury, MA made a big change and purchased a new Demag AC60-3, 65 ton US capacity, all terrain crane from Empire Crane Company. Roque says, “With the AC60, I can park in one spot and do everything around me. It’s more precise, has higher capacity, and more reach.”
Most of the work Dennis Tree performs is tree removal. The crane’s first job was removing 16 pine trees from a residential area. They individually lifted 7,000lb -10,000lb cuts of tree using a single linepull. The linepull on a AC60-3 is 15,000lbs; more than double the linepull on Dennis’ previous machine. The Demag AC60-3 also features 164’ of main boom, a 52’ double folding swing-away jib, tilting cab, Mercedes engine, cameras for added safety, and the IC-1 Plus control system.
Justin Melvin, Empire Crane New England General Manager said, “the Demag AC60-3 is the industry leader for capacity and boom length in its class. It’s compact and will be fast and easy for the crew to setup on each job location.” Empire Crane is an authorized dealer for Demag cranes in the traditional New England area. They not only offer new Demag cranes, but also stock Demag parts to eliminate downtime. Empire has multiple Demag certified level 5 technicians who travel to customers throughout the territory.
“The sales department at Empire Crane, specifically Justin, is very good. Justin explained all of the details of the crane to me and the advantages it would give my company” said Roque, “I’m very happy with the machine; it does everything I need it to do”.
