Modern Crane has received Canada’s firstAC 300-6
Modern Crane has received Canada’s first Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain crane. The company purchased the new crane from Terex Cranes distributor Cropac Equipment and plans to use it to assemble tower cranes.

Modern Crane is a division of the Pumpcrete Corporation, which is highly active in the heavy lifting and concrete pumping sectors, heavy haul and transportation.

According to Modern Crane VP of sales Aaron Hanna, the new crane’s long main boom was a crucial feature in the company’s decision. "The crane has the reach we need, and it is easy to set up on job sites where there are potentially impeding obstacles."

Mark Williams, Modern Crane’s owner, says that the new all-terrain crane will give the company a significant advantage in the market. "It features the latest in crane technology that will help our team work more efficiently."

The six-axle AC 300-6 has a 300 T capacity classification, features an 80 m main boom and is the smallest crane in the Demag All Terrain range equipped with a luffing jib. The unit’s 80 m main boom is designed to perform jobs at heights up to 78 m or 74 m radius without rigging a jib.

Cropac president Bill Finkle says that North America has more tower cranes than anywhere else in the world, and the Demag AC 300-6 crane has a much larger capacity compared to other units in the field. "We expect this crane to be popular throughout the region for a long time to come," he adds.

Founded in 1962, Modern Crane combines an extensive fleet of cranes with a 3D lift planning service to service the needs of leading developers and contractors in Ontario.
