The eight-axle, 600 US ton (500 tonne) lift capacity crane features the maximum system length of 478.3 ft (145.8 m) and the Demag IC-1 Plus control system designed to provide the crane’s maximum allowable lifting capacity, based on the slewing angle, for every crane configuration.
“We are dedicated to giving customers the highest quality of value-added services available,” explained Michelle Grubb-Solaimani, CFO of W.O. Grubb Crane Rental. “To do that, we make it a point to carry the latest in crane innovation and the Demag AC 500-8 all terrain crane certainly fits in that category. It features industry leading innovations that will enhance the productivity of our customers. We know they will be pleased with this unit’s performance.”
The Demag AC 500-8 all terrain crane has the shortest carrier length of its class and x-pattern outriggers that are designed to provide on-the-job stability. The crane also comes with the Demag patented Sideways Superlift (SSL) for a superior lifting performance.
