Nov. 18, 2019, Zweibrücken, Germany – A new Demag AC 130-5 crane was delivered to Wiesbauer in October.

The Swabian Bietigheim-Bissingen-based crane service provider already has a Demag AC 700-9, an AC 500-8, an AC 300-6, an AC 160-5, an AC 55-3, and various city cranes hard at work.

The new Demag AC 130-5 has now been welcomed into the fold after being picked up by crane operators Jochen Valent, Martin Tiede, and Jan Schöneck in Zweibrücken. The new crane was handed over by Tadano Demag Sales Manager Michael Zieger.

“We’ve had nothing but good experiences with all our Demag cranes to date, and we don’t expect that to be any different with our new Demag AC 130-5,” Jochen Wiesbauer says as a sign of his confidence in the quality and powerful performance that characterize Demag cranes.

He also points out that the Demag AC 130-5’s excellent base counterweight specifications make additional transportation vehicles unnecessary for most jobs, and that this is an outstanding plus.

“Basically put, the AC 130-5 is always carrying what it needs to get the job done. In addition, it’s the most compact crane in its capacity class, which makes it extremely maneuverable and versatile,” he adds.

The crane comes with the innovative IC-1 Plus control system, which enables it to tackle lifts that would otherwise remain the exclusive purview of larger cranes. The “newcomer” to the fleet is being used at the Wiesbauer branch in Waiblingen, and in fact already had a job lined up for it immediately after being handed over.
