Heinrichs GmbH orders Tadano taxi crane



 Heinrichs GmbH & Co KG has taken delivery of a Tadano ATF 100G-4

The German crane service provider boasts a fleet ranging from 40 to 220 tonnes, and ordered the new 100-tonne Tadano to be used primarily as a taxi crane.

Company owner Thomas Heinrichs said: “The ATF 100G-4 will allow us to be even more flexible when it comes to accepting orders. It’s compact and powerful, so it really is the perfect taxi crane.”

The new ATF 100G-4 has12 counterweight variants that allow it to respond to the specific needs of each assignment. For example, the 4-axle crane can carry a 7.6 tonne counterweight without boom extension, or a 6 tonne counterweight with an 18 metre double-folding jib. With the help of the boom extension, the 100-tonne crane has a maximum roller height of 72.5 metres and a maximum possible outreach of 58 metres.

“We want to use the crane primarily for moving machinery, as an auxiliary crane or in prefabricated construction. On the construction sites, the second boom extension with integrated winch is particularly helpful, because it allows us to lift the concrete parts with just a single machine and turn them however we like. And thanks to the crane’s outstanding reach, this is possible even for larger structures. This makes it even easier for us to plan assignments and meet our customers’ needs.” added Heinrichs.

The 4-axle crane measures around 13 metres long and 2.75 metres wide. The asymmetric outrigger base control allows the outrigger beams to be extended individually, which allows the crane to adapt to the crane site.
