Gheysens take delivery of new Tadano AC 7.450-1 in Bruges

From now on, a Tadano AC 7.450-1 on its way to work will also be part of the sights in the Benelux countries. Crane service provider Gheysens Kranen, based in Bruges, Belgium, has taken delivery of the first of this model from Tadano together with an AC 5.160-1 and AC 5.250-1.

The brand new seven-axle unit was handed over by Tadano Belgium to Managing Director Miguel Gheysens, who made absolutely sure to receive the machine in person commented, “The Tadano AC 7.450-1 fascinated me from the get-go. It’s a pretty incredible piece of machinery, compact like a six-axle crane and yet more powerful than some eight-axle units out there when using certain boom positions. To tell you the truth, we’re very proud of having this one in our fleet.”





Gheysens ordered the AC 7.450-1 with an 81m luffing jib and the enhanced SSL Sideways Superlift system, in which the Superlift arms are mounted all the way at the front of the head, meaning that they are ultimately longer and provide larger lifting capacities. Gheysens even treated itself to aluminum rims on its new AC 7.450-1 – but not due to aesthetic reasons, but rather because this enables the Tadano to travel within a 12t axle load limit even when carrying the three-sheave hook block on board.
