Terex AC 500-2 - Sarens

This Terex AC 500-2 of Sarens (Netherlands) was at that time the second in their fleet in the Netherlands. The crane is doing here one of hers first hoists.

The crane has fleet number 4001 and the biggest difference with the other machine is the safety system.

Used with 140 tonnes of counterweight.

This crane has on the upper cab the well known 'trafic light' that gives an indication of the load in the crane.

The crane was working together with the Terex AC 700 to hoist windmill parts.
