The most compact crane in its class Like all other Demag 5-axle cranes, the biggest one in this series is also the most compact of its capacity class: With a total length of 14.49 meters, 5-axle steering, independent rear axle steering, and dynamic launch control, it is highly maneuverable, making it perfect for work at tight work sites.
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 550 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.
Thanks to its innovative IC-1 Plus control system, the Demag AC 250-5 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 250-5 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.
