Schmidbauer is already putting its third AC 4.080-1 into operation, a development that the team at Tadano considers a compelling argument in favor of the crane model’s extraordinary qualities. While picking up the crane in Zweibrücken, Managing Director Stefan Schmidbauer provided even more evidence of this with his comment: “We’ve had nothing but good experiences with our two other AC 4.080-1 units, so deciding on a third was actually really easy.” The crane was handed over by Tadano Sales Manager Hans Asam.

The team at Schmidbauer considers the AC 4.080-1’s compact design and excellent lifting capacities with a 60-meter main boom to be crucial advantages. “On top of that, the AC 4.080-1 is extremely versatile as a taxi crane, which makes it a remarkably cost-effective machine for a large number of jobs,” adds Stefan Schmidbauer, who ordered his crane with the Flex Base and Surround View systems. The former will make it possible to extend the crane’s outriggers to any point within their available range, while the latter will make it extremely easy to position the crane at work sites where space is tight.

This is vital, as Schmidbauer is planning to use its new AC 4.080-1 as an all-rounder for a variety of jobs that include urban lifts where space is at a premium and much more: erecting concrete and prefab components, trench and utility line construction, antenna erection, container lifting, etc. This should come as no surprise, as the AC 4.080-1 is an extremely versatile machine, as the team at Schmidbauer knows from experience.
