For Uwe Podlech and Jens Napierala, managing directors of Breithaupt & Philipp, the Demag® AC 60-3 all terrain crane is the first choice in its class: "The crane is not only particularly maneuverable and compact, but also very powerful," explain the two managing directors in unison. "This makes it the ideal tool for our applications,"

This is why they didn't miss the opportunity to pick up the crane personally in Zweibrücken together with crane operator Steffen Aulich and truck driver Uwe Bernhard. The new machine for the Magdeburg-based company was handed over by Terex Cranes senior sales manager Christian Kassner and his colleague sales manager Ulrich Wagner.

Breithaupt & Philipp will primarily use the AC 60-3 in the urban area of Magdeburg for concrete assembly as well as for the construction of detached houses and roof trusses. Here, the crane can play to its design advantages: With its 50-m main boom, it can easily reach over protruding edges even without extension, and with its intelligent IC1-Plus control system, it lifts high loads even with asymmetrical outrigger configuration on narrow construction sites. This means that in many cases it even proves to be superior to larger cranes. In urban applications, it can score points not only for its exceptional performance but also for its high cost-effectiveness: As the three-axle crane is very agile and compact, fewer time-consuming maneuvers are required and, thanks to its road mobility within the 12-tonne axle load, only a small part of the counterweight usually has to be transported by separate trucks.

"And last but not least, the AC 60-3 bears the name Demag and comes from Zweibrücken - for us this is a seal of quality that we attach great importance to," Uwe Podlech, who agrees with Jens Napierala on this point, too, said.
