Mammoet buys its first Demag AC 55-3 all terrain crane

The heavy lift and transport specialist Mammoet has taken delivery of its first Demag AC 55-3 all terrain crane. “The main reason why we chose the Demag AC 55-3 is its outstanding lifting capacity. In addition, the AC 55-3 is an extraordinarily robust and reliable crane, as our Dutch colleagues have confirmed,” explained Vitor de Costa, part of Mammoet’s Fleet Maintenance staff, who picked up the crane in Zweibrücken together with crane operator Alexander Morasch and was handed over by Terex Cranes Key Account Senior Sales Manager Uwe Schlicher.

The Demag AC 55-3 will be used at the BASF factory premises in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
