Longest main boom length of all 5-axle cranes With its 78-meter-long main boom, the Demag AC 220-5 works at heights that no other crane in its class can reach. And if necessary, it can reach even higher: Up to 99 meters are possible with the optional main boom extension.
Thanks to its innovative IC-1 Plus control system, the Demag AC 220-5 can even handle lifts that are normally the exclusive job of larger cranes. The system is designed to calculate the crane’s lifting capacity for every position of the boom subject to the slewing angle of the superstructure, in real time. This means that the lifting capacity for a specific radius is no longer limited to the lowest value for a pre-calculated 360° lifting capacity, as used to be the case. Instead, the crane can always take full advantage of the maximum available lifting capacity. This advantage is particularly useful when it comes to lifts requiring an asymmetric outrigger setup.
The Demag AC 220-5 is designed to help keep your operating costs down. To this end, many of the Demag 5-axle cranes’ components are interchangeable – from hoist 2, through the main boom extensions and runner, all the way to the swing-away rooster sheaves and heavy-lift attachment. This makes work easier for your service technicians and lowers your inventory costs.
Even though it has an enormous reach, the Demag AC 220-5 is compact like no other crane in the 220-tonne capacity class: With a total length of only 14.52 meters and a width of three meters, it performs like a champ at work sites with constrained space conditions.
Its clever axle load distribution makes the Demag AC 220-5 truly roadworthy, as it remains under an axle load limit of 12 tonnes even with a payload of up to 600 kilograms. In other words: For many jobs, it requires less additional transport, thus reducing the costs associated with it. Moreover, the crane can be quickly set up on-site, as it already carries everything it needs to get working.
