20th of January 2005 The first of the Terex Demag AC55 City cranes, which were ordered by UK crane hirers at Bauma last year have arrived at the Terex Demag facility in Upper Heyford and are currently being tested and prepared for delivery.
A unit destined for City lifting was being tested with the optional full reach of 60 metres, comprising the seven section 40 metre main booom, two stage extension plus six metre slide out extension.
Units are currently going through final inspection for Lee Lifting, City Lifting and Quigleys crane hire. The Quigley unit, the first of four, was closeted in the workshops where storage boxes and outrigger pad racks were being fitted.
The units were originally scheduled for delivery late last year but some minor design issues delayed the units until Christmas was looming, so they are now destined for delivery later this week and should soon be seen out and about on UK roads.
