The Tadano ATF-220-5.1 from Hack Schwerlastservice GmbH Lifts and Turns 22t Fire Barrier Sections – Video
If the situation calls for turning prefabricated parts as well as lifting them, a second winch can be worth its weight in gold. After all, it can save deploying an auxiliary crane. This is just one of the advantages that Hack Schwerlastservice GmbH benefited from while working on a project in Mayen, Rhineland-Palatinate.
Hack Schwerlastservice is a well-established company offering services across Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. Its head office can be found near Koblenz at the Neuwied am Rhein site. With a large team to call upon, Hack has been offering the full range of crane and heavy-duty services for more than 60 years, from heavy goods vehicles to salvaging work and lifting tasks.
Hack Schwerlastservice recently purchased a Tadano ATF-220-5.1 to expand its extensive fleet. The typical Tadano qualities made it a convincing choice, as Hack project manager Andreas Höller explains: “The 220 is exceptionally reliable and low-maintenance, just like all Tadano cranes. We know from experience that the machines from Lauf an der Pegnitz will not let us down.” And that is precisely why the crane was called into action for a demanding project in the Eifel region.
The factory premises of the Brohl Wellpappe needed having 22-tonne fire barriers lifted and erected for one of its industrial halls. The construction company in charge commissioned Hack Schwerlastservice GmbH to lift the prefabricated concrete parts, each of which were 12 m long. This provided the 220 with the ideal opportunity to demonstrate its extraordinary capabilities in two-winch operation immediately after delivery. The combination of this equipment with the 5.8 m boom extension that can be angled hydraulically meant it was possible to carry out the job with only one crane.
