Hungarian crane rental company Dunagep has added a brand new Demag AC 220-5 all terrain crane to its fleet. The company started to work with this manufacturer’s cranes in 1993. Since then, they have become a part of the Dunagep parc, which currently includes two AC 553, one AC 802, one AC 1605 and one AC 5002. The fleet of the Budapest crane service provider thus comprises a total of five cranes from Zweibrücken. The new machine was handed over by Tadano Demag’s Sales Manager Andreas Schramm to Troppert Ferenc, Technical Director at Dunagep.
“What particularly impressed us about our latest Demag crane were the 78-m-long main boom and the strength of the crane, particularly in the upper lifting capacity range,” says Troppert Ferenc, citing two major reasons for purchasing the AC 2205. But the technical director was also taken with the hydraulic main boom extension: “It saves our teams a lot of time on the construction site and thus makes our work particularly cost-effective,” he explains. Other advantages of the Demag AC 2205 are, in his view, the innovative IC1 Plus control system and the possibility of working with asymmetrical outrigger configurations.
Dunagep will use its new AC 2205 for moving machines during industrial installations and for other operations, primarily in refineries.
