The unit’s maximum hook height and the corresponding lifting capacity on the main boom and the strong fixed jib were—quite literally—powerful arguments when it came to making a decision,” explains foreman Herbert Wieseckl, who works at the Max Bögl Group’s Heavy Equipment for Building Construction department.
The fact that the AC 350/6 is also characterized by an extraordinary price/performance ratio, low operating costs, and high reliability, undoubtedly contributed to the decision as well.
The first of the two cranes was handed over at the Terex Zweibrücken location in November 2011. Sales representative Philipp Maurer handed over the AC350/6, with the configuration requested by the customer (a 51 meter-long main boom and a strong fixed jib), to crane operator Klaus Schmidt from Max Bögl GmbH. A few days later, Schmidt received the second crane, featuring the exact same configuration, and took it back to Bavaria. Not surprisingly, the two Terex cranes already have a project waiting for them: they have been scheduled to erect a wind turbine, where they will be able to easily prove their worth.
