Demag increases strength and reach in all terrain crane


Demag has focused on strength, reach and versatility in its new all terrain crane. The six axle AC 300-6 boasts a 350 ton classification, featuring an 80m main boom, and is the first crane of its size in the company’s range equipped with a luffing jib.

The fully telescoped boom can perform jobs to a height of 78m or a 74m radius without rigging a jib, and has a lift capacity of 16.5 ton. With the luffing jib – the same as on the AC 35-6 and AC 1000-9 – outfitted, the maximum length of the system extends to 118m. The crane is fitted with a single engine, featuring start and stop functions to reduce idle times and total engine hours.

A Demag spokesperson said, “Packed with the latest Demag innovations like the IC-1 Plus control system and a single engine concept with an intelligent motor management system, the Demag AC 300-6 enhances productivity to help reduce operating costs. The IC-1 Plus control system provides real-time calculation of the lifting capacities and supports operators in safe crane operation. It also allows asymmetric outrigger positioning. This also allows the crane to perform jobs usually reserved for larger machines.”

The crane has a carrier length of 15.3m and a width of 3m, while on the road meets axle load limits from below 13.2 tons up to 17.6 tons and can travel at speeds of up to 85km/h.
