Terex Cranes has made multiple product updates to the Demag AC 100-4L all-terrain crane, including a new design that improves lifting performance, especially when working at steep main boom positions.

One of the most compact cranes in the 100-tonne class, the redesigned AC 100-4L crane includes the Demag IC-1 Plus control system, which instantly calculates the crane’s maximum allowable capacity, based on the slewing angle, for any crane configuration.

This means the maximum lifting capacity is no longer limited to a pre-calculated, 360-degree load chart based on the most unstable position of the crane.

"This advantage is particularly useful when working with reduced outrigger settings and reduced counterweight," Terex says. "In fact, it enables the Demag AC 100-4L to perform jobs where higher capacity cranes are typically needed.

"This comes with an added benefit: for many applications, the IC-1 Plus control system not only uses the full potential of the crane’s lifting capacity, but also creates the opportunity to use less counterweight as compared to the 360-degree lifting capacities.

"This results in reduced transport costs," the company adds.

The 4-axle AC 100-4L now incorporates many of the same design concepts as the Demag 5-axle crane family, with the aim of simplifying crane servicing for technicians working on 4- and 5-axle Demag all terrain cranes.

"From the drive train and the assembly for drive components to the boom head and main boom extension designs, customers will find more parts and component commonality between the AC 100-4L and other Demag all terrain cranes to reduce spare parts inventory costs and storage," Terex says.

The AC 100-4L has a 59.4m main boom length and 69.5m total system length.

It is well-suited to navigating congested urban areas as it has a narrow standard truck width of only 2.55m, even when equipped with large 445/95R25 tires.
