Danese Autogru receives Demag® AC 220-5 All Terrain Crane

Crane rental specialists Danese Autogru SRL are upgrading their fleet in Montanara, Italy, with a 220-tonne capacity Demag® AC 220-5 all terrain crane. With its compact size, outstanding reach and onboard technology, the AC 220-5 crane is a welcomed addition to Danese Autogru’s fleet of 18 cranes.


“We currently own a few smaller Terex and Demag all terrain cranes, and we’ve been pleased with those units’ performance,” explains Giancarlo Danese, Owner of Danese Autogru. “This larger Demag 5-axle crane is easy to transport from job to job and rigs quickly; those are qualities that will help our team be efficient for our customers. Plus, we’re very pleased with the level of service we receive from our Terex Cranes distributor Tecno-Gru. They get us what we need to stay productive.”

Danese Autogru’s new Demag AC 220-5 crane has an outstanding reach with a main boom length of 78 m and a maximum system length of 99 m. It features the Demag IC-1 Plus control system that calculates real-time lifting capacities allowing the crane to perform jobs usually reserved for larger machines. Also, the Demag single engine concept will start and stop machine functions to reduce idle times and total engine hours contributing to the reduction of fuel costs and preserving the crane’s residual value.
