Duffy Cranes and Hauling Receives Demag AC 220-5 Crane

Sep. 4, 2019 –Duffy Cranes and Hauling, out of Denver, is expanding its mobile crane fleet with the addition of a new Demag AC 220-5 all-terrain crane. The Duffy team commissioned their new crane and has already put it in the field on several challenging projects. The five-axle crane is one of several Demag all-terrain crane models that the family-operated company owns.

According to John Krane, director of crane operations at Duffy, “Our team is thrilled with the way the new Demag AC 220-5 all-terrain crane has performed. It has been a great unit for us and our customers. We’re committed to being responsive to the needs of our customers. This new model is fast and easy to transport, it rigs quickly, and it can handle a wide range of lifts.”

The 245 U.S.-ton (220 tonne) capacity AC 220–5 features, according to the company, the longest main boom in its class at 255.9’, which can be extended to a fully 324.8’ with boom extensions. It is designed with the Demag single-engine concept with an intelligent motor management system that helps reduce operational and maintenance costs. The crane also has all-axle steering, independent rear axle steering, and dynamic launch control for maneuverability.
