Truck Crane AK 46/6000

Böcker's strong alucrane with hydraulically extendible jib

With a payload of up to 6 t, the truck crane AK 46/6000 provides customers with a strong combination of performance, enormous working ranges and surpassing efficiency. The crane has a maximum extension length of 44 meters. By assembling a mechanical extension which is easily fixed by two bolts, this crane can even be extended up to a maximum length of 46 m. Having a maximum range of 39 meters with 250 kg or 26 m with 1,000 kg payload, this crane equally impresses by an extremely large working area.

Beside unrivalled surpassing performance data, enormous efficiency and surpassing agility during daily operations are further key advantages of the truck crane 46/6000. The comparatively low body weight permits the assembly on an 18 or 26 t truck. The AK 46/6000 therefore not only impresses by low dead weight and favorable consumption data. The crane is also extremely agile thanks to its compact and lightweight construction. So the AK 46/6000 amazes by surpassing driving characteristics as well as precise manoeuvering even under extremely challenging circumstances.

Due to the solid construction and its first-class workmanship this crane proves its maximum reliability even during the hardest projects on challenging construction sites. So the AK 46/6000 becomes a dependable assistant who will be at your side providing maximum performance and efficiency at any time. Beside maximum convenience and security, the alu-crane AK 46/6000 additionally provides surpassing efficiency as an optional utilization of the maximum working range for each project. The new radio control with full-color display and optional camera technology ensures in addition an easy and safe use of all crane functions.

Sustainable drive technology

The AK 46/6000 is optionally available as a hybrid crane with an additional electric motor. Particularly in densely populated areas, the low-emission and quiet operation provides excellent advantages. The 400 V drive works as powerfully as usual with an output of 30 kW. Thanks to the adjustable fuse protection, the crane utilises the maximum available current at the construction site at any moment. In order to minimise the energy intake, a sustainable stop-and-go-automatic device limits the energy consumption of the hybrid crane. The control system registers movement requirements activating the electric motor only when required. During idle times and waiting times, the automatic system saves valuable resources. With the eReady kit, the truck crane can be prepared for a subsequent retrofit of the eDrive.

If there is no power supply on-site, the hybrid truck crane can optionally be operated via the power-take-off of the truck engine. This is where the latest engine technology with exhaust gas cleaning and AdBlue injection is used. In addition, all Böcker cranes use exclusively biodegradable, long-life hydraulic oil of the lowest water pollution class.
