Duffy Cranes and Hauling receives new Demag AC 220-5 all terrain crane
August 20, 2019, Zweibrücken, Germany – Denver, Colorado’s Duffy Cranes and Hauling is expanding its mobile crane fleet with the addition of a new Demag AC 220-5 all terrain crane.
The Duffy team commissioned their new crane and has already put it out in the field performing several challenging projects. The 5-axle crane is one of several Demag all terrain crane models that the locally owned and family operated company owns.
According to John Krane, director of crane operations at Duffy, “our team is thrilled with the way the new Demag AC 220-5 all terrain crane has performed. It has been a great unit for us and our customers,” he said. “We’re committed to being responsive to the needs of our customers. This new model is fast and easy to transport, it rigs quickly and it can handle a wide range of lifts.”
Duffy’s new 245 US-ton (220 t) capacity Demag AC 220–5 all terrain crane features the longest main boom in its class at 255.9 feet (78 m), which can be extended to a fully 324.8 feet (99 m) with boom extensions. It is designed with the Demag single-engine concept with an intelligent motor management system that helps reduce operational and maintenance costs.
The crane also has all-axle steering, independent rear axle steering and dynamic launch control for excellent maneuverability.
