The AK 46/6000 features an extension length of 44 m and a two-metre extension for a maximum length of 46 m. It can handle its maximum 6,000 kg payload at a radius of 8 m, 1,000 kg at 26 m or 250 kg at 39 m. Features include a fully hydraulically extendible jib, wireless color remote control, and automatic levelling. As with all Böcker truck-mounted cranes, the positioning of every individual outrigger is fully variable. Mounted on a 26 t carrier the steered trailing axle makes the crane extremely manoeuvrable and furnishes it with excellent driving characteristics.
Chris Ashworth, Director ofEastern Crane Hire, said: “The Böcker AK 46/6000 was a no brainer for us as a fast growing company. We needed a replacement for a 23-year-old truck crane and this was the perfect option. With its compact design, long boom length and variable outriggers it is a lightweight alternative to complement our current all terrain fleet. The capabilities of this versatile machine will allow our company to progress and improve the service available to our customers. Our new AK 46/6000 joins fleet of mobile cranes which operates from Maldon, Essex.”
