Terex Cranes has launched the latest version of its six-axle Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain crane as the first crane of the 300t-class in the Demag range equipped to be equipped with a luffing jib.
With an 80m main boom, the Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain crane can perform jobs at heights up to 78m or at a radius of 74m radius without rigging a jib, and is ideal for tower crane erection, with a class-leading lifting capacity of 15t with a fully telescoped 80m main boom.
The Demag AC 300-6 can now also be outfitted with a luffing jib – and is the smallest Demag crane to be able to do so range – for superior reach and fly-over capabilities, by bringing the maximum system length up to 118m.
The luffing jib rigging system is the same proven rigging system as that used on the Demag AC 350-6 and Demag AC 1000-9 cranes, and facilitates safe and quick rigging.
The Demag AC 300-6 has also been equipped with Terex’s IC-1 Plus control system, allowing it calculate of the safe lifting capacities of the crane in real-time and for all variations in the crane’s outrigger positions and counterweight.
The system allows a crane to lift beyond the standard 360° load charts, and therefore perform jobs usually reserved for larger machines.
In its latest iteration, the Demag AC 300-6 helps maintain a lower stock of spare parts by using a high number of interchangeable parts with the Demag five-axle family all terrain cranes.
The 21m double folding main boom extension of the five-axle Demag cranes is now also compatible with the Demag AC 300-6 model.
The Demag AC 300-6 also has a single engine and intelligent motor management system, with start and stop function to reduce idle times and total engine hours, for reduced fuel costs and a lower impact on the crane’s residual value.
The compact design of the Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain crane has a carrier length of 15.3m and width of 3m, making it easier to transport and subsequently position on the jobsite, aided by active all-wheel steering for manoeuvrability in tight spaces.
On the road, the Demag AC 300-6 crane meets axle load limits from below 12t up to 16t and can travel up to 85 km/h. It also has 800kg of extra payload capacity for carrying extra lifting accessories.
Overall, the latest Demag AC 300-6 enhances productivity by helping to reduce operating and transport costs compared to similar models in its class, while delivering the strength, reach and versatility.
Terex Cranes also recently launched an upgrade to its Boom Booster kit for the Demag CC 3800-1 lattice boom crawler crane that increases the maximum system length to 183m and increases lift capacities by up to 30%.
