Truck Crane AK 52

outstanding reach for loads to 12 tons

With a maximum payload of 12 tons and a boom length of 52 metres (optional 55 metres), the AK 52 is the most powerful aluminium-steel mobile crane in the 26 tons truck class. Thanks to these surpassing characteristics the truck crane lifts 1,000 kg on 30 meters with a reach of 34 meters.

The AK 52 also reaches new dimensions when being converted to an access platform. The optional basket is designed for 600 kg payload and can be hydraulically extended to a range of 3.5 metres during operation.

Thanks to its compact design, the small swing-through radius, its state-of-the-art hybrid telescopic fly jib of 14 metres and the fully radio-controlled telescopic boom the AK 52 is very adaptable in tight spaces.
