The units form part of a bulk order made last year, and are the third and fourth cranes to be delivered.

Discussing the crane choice, Heinz Schuh, Scholpp’s Ludwigshafen branch manager, said, “Not only is the crane extremely compact and manoeuvrable, it also has an impressively large 60 meter boom length.”

Last year, the company used its first AC 4.080-1 all terrain to lift a steel pedestrian bridge in Bad Rotenfels in Germany.

The company said the cranes are easy to operate and can handle a large number of lifts even with standard equipment. The cranes will be used on a wide range of tasks at the company’s factory. 

“The benefits here include the highly efficient single-engine design and, of course, the IC 1 Plus crane control system, which in many cases reduces costs by eliminating the need for separate counterweight trucks,” added Stephan Burkhardt, Scholpp’s Leonberg branch manager.

Electric options

The cranes come equipped with connections for Tadano’s electrohydraulic e-Pack.

“The e-Pack enables quiet, zero-emission operation, which makes the crane even more versatile because it can also be used in noise-sensitive areas of production halls and near hospitals,” he explained. “The AC 4.080-1 is a genuine all-rounder.”
