February 10, 2017 — Kerr Crane Service of Timmins, Ont., recently expanded its crane fleet with the addition of a new Demag AC 250-6 all terrain crane. With a 262-ft. main boom and impressive load chart, the Demag AC 250-6 crane is the most compact 6-axle crane, which will give Kerr Crane’s better maneuverability in confined working areas and easy over-the-road transportation. The new unit joins an extensive fleet of mobile cranes ranging in size from 28-ton to 400-ton capacity.
“We wanted a crane that could handle a variety of demanding lifts, was easy to transport between jobs and didn’t require a lot of setup time,” explains Logan Kerr, vice-president at Kerr Crane Service. “The Demag AC 250-6 all terrain gives us the biggest bang for the buck. The crane sets up quickly, has user-friendly controls with a simple operation control system and is cost effective to transport. We save on labor costs, which makes our company a better business partner on future projects.”
Kerr Crane ordered the Demag AC 250-6 crane with a 262-ft. main boom from Cropac Equipment, the Terex Cranes distributor located in Oakville, Ont. Kerr says the 262-ft. boom is exactly what they need for their most challenging jobs, and the team at Cropac Equipment has been a responsive business partner for many years.
“Cropac always makes things easy for the customer,” he adds.
The Demag AC 250-6 all terrain crane is currently being put to work at the Harmon Generating Station in Kapuskasing, Ont., installing gates in the power house.
