Gräser-Eschbach takes delivery of its AC 300
Mannheim-based crane service provider Gräser-Eschbach has become the first customer in Germany to receive a new Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain crane.

"For us, the AC 300-6 is not only one of the newest but also one of the best and most powerful cranes in the 300 T class. Above all, its high lifting capacity of 15 T with a fully extended main boom length of 80 m makes it the perfect crane for our company," says managing director Frank Eschbach, who personally took delivery of the crane from Terex Cranes sales manager Michael Zieger in Zweibrücken.

"And we regard the fact that it is only 120 km from our branch in Mannheim to Zweibrücken as a fundamental advantage for our business relationship with Terex Cranes. The short distance, pcombined with the fast service of this manufacturer, made our purchase decision even easier," he adds.

The Gräser-Eschbach Group operates sites in Mannheim and Bad Schönborn. In addition to crane work, the service portfolio of the family-run business, which has been in existence for over 70 years, includes heavy transport, lifting technology and assembly logistics.

Demag released the six-axle AC 300-6 in June last year.

It can work at a height of up to 78 m and will lift 15 T with the boom fully extended. It is the smallest model in the Demag range to have a luffing jib, taking the maximum system length to 118 m. The luffing jib rigging system is the same as on the larger AC 350-6 and AC 1000-9 models.
