Duffy Crane & Hauling Adds TEREX® AC 100/4L All Terrain Crane
WAVERLY, IA Duffy Crane & Hauling of Denver, Colorado, is expanding its fleet and service offerings with a newly commissioned Terex® AC 100/4L all terrain crane. The company added the Terex AC 100/4L for its impressive 194-foot boom length, the largest of the 120-ton capacity class of cranes, and its ability to travel to jobsites without curfew restrictions.
"Our new Terex AC 100/4L all terrain crane fills a niche in the marketplace," said Jeffrey Cummings, President at Duffy Cranes & Hauling. "After doing extensive research, we determined this crane was the best multi-purpose, two-man crane for our needs and the only non-curfew unit with a 190-foot plus boom size. This saves us a lot of prep time because we don't have to send it out in advance of a job and then spend time waiting for a job to start."
Cummings also points out that because of the crane's boom length, they have more flexibility to perform lifts that typically require a larger crane.
"The combination of the crane's reach and over-the-road travel performance lowers our operating costs, and that translates into cost savings for our customers," said Cummings.
The compact Terex AC 100/4L all terrain crane is the only crane in the 120-ton capacity class to feature a standard truck width of 8.4 feet making it possible to position the crane in tight locations. With a telescopic main boom of 194.9 feet and the 26.2-foot section of its 62.34-foot- long double folding jib, the crane also features one of the longest system lengths that can travel on four axles. A powerful 445 horsepower engine is responsible for the crane's cost-effective operation, excellent road-traveling performance and outstanding fuel economy.
Duffy Crane & Hauling put its new crane to work right away, lifting a power distribution center from the inside of the manufacturer's facility to a trailer so they could transport it to its new home.
"Right out of the gate, we were impressed with the AC 100/4L," said Cummings. "We made a great investment."
