SCHOLPP Kran & Transport GmbH Take Delivery of Their Third and Fourth Tadano AC 4.080-1 in 4 Weeks

SCHOLPP Kran & Transport GmbH have become regular visitors to Tadano in Zweibrücken in the past four weeks. The first occasion was when Scholpp’s Ludwigshafen Branch Manager Heinz Schuh took delivery of the firm’s third AC 4.080-1. And the second was when Leonberg Branch Manager Stephan Burkhardt arrived to pick up the final of the four AC 4.080-1 units purchased by Scholpp under a “bulk order” placed last year. He was accompanied by the manager of his Stuttgart workshop, Roman Nierobisch, and crane operator Sascha Riotte. In both instances, the cranes were handed over by Tadano Sales Manager Michael Zieger.

The reason Scholpp ordered four of these cranes all at once is easy to explain, the AC 4.080-1 offers a truly outstanding range of benefits. “Not only is the crane extremely compact and maneuverable, it also has an impressively large 60m boom length,” says Heinz Schuh. He is equally impressed with the AC 4.080-1 unit’s ease of operation and the fact that it can handle a large number of lifts even with the standard equipment. All this makes this new crane the ideal machine for taking care of a wide range of tasks at the BASF factory premises in Ludwigshafen, where it will be working in the future.

“The benefits here include the highly efficient single-engine design and, of course, the IC‑1 Plus crane control system, which in many cases reduces costs by eliminating the need for separate counterweight trucks,” says Stephan Burkhardt. He also loves the fact that Scholpp’s new AC 4.080-1 units are pre-equipped with connections for the electrohydraulic e-Pack, giving the company the option of powering them electrically. “The e-Pack enables quiet, zero-emission operation, which makes the crane even more versatile because it can also be used in noise-sensitive areas of production halls and near hospitals,” he explains. The compact design makes the machine extremely maneuverable and hence ideal for tight work sites. “With all these features and benefits, the AC 4.080-1 is a genuine all-rounder, with a level of versatility virtually unrivalled in its class,” says Burkhardt.
