All-terrain crane Tadano AC 7.450-1 Operation in Dübendorf

Expert for little space and great heights

Tadano AC 7.450-1 mobile crane in operation on a high-rise construction site in Dübendorf. Due to the confined space, a compactly built crane with enormous lifting height was required, which can erect construction cranes up to 100 m.

EMIL EGGER’s 7-axle crane is characterized by its compact support: “It could be perfectly adapted to the support grid of the underground garage on whose roof we placed the crane. Without the high flexibility of the outrigger system, we would have had major problems with the positioning of our crane,” explains Beat Greuter, project manager in the heavy cargo division. Another advantage of the latest crane in EMIL EGGER’s fleet is the Surround View camera system. Crane operator Max Frei is enthusiastic about the new efficiency: “Thanks to the surround view, I was able to place the crane in the desired location myself, without a second person.”

“The Surround View is a helpful tool that is also helpful when extending the supports and always gives the crane operator an overview of the slewing radius of his crane,” adds Beat Greuter. For the addition of three construction cranes, the EGGER team equipped the AC 7.450-1 in SSL configuration with a 57.3 m main boom plus a 42 m luffing jib braced at 60° and 70 t counterweight. This enabled the mobile crane to reach the required lifting height of 100 m to assemble the construction crane components weighing up to 19 tons.

The lateral Superlift SSL is also a decisive further development of the AC 7.450-1. In the new concept, the Superlift arms are attached to the very front of the head, in this way they are longer and can lift higher payloads.
