Duffy Crane Adds 120-Ton Terex AT to Fleet | Construction News


Duffy Crane & Hauling, Denver, Colo., is expanding its fleet and service offerings with a newly commissioned Terex AC 100/4L all terrain crane.

Founded in 1886, the family-owned Duffy Crane & Hauling specializes in lifting and transporting overweight and over-dimension loads.

Duffy has added the Terex AC 100/4L for its impressive 194-ft. boom length,  longest in the 120-ton capacity class of cranes, and its ability to travel to jobsites without curfew restrictions.

“Our new Terex AC 100/4L all-terrain crane fills a niche in the marketplace,” says Jeffrey Cummings, president of Duffy Cranes & Hauling. “After doing extensive research, we determined this crane was the best multi-purpose, two-man crane for our needs and the only non-curfew unit with a 190-ft.-plus boom size. This saves us a lot of prep time because we don’t have to send it out in advance of a job and then spend time waiting for a job to start."

Cummings also points out that the crane’s boom length gives Duffy more flexibility to perform lifts that typically require a larger crane. “The combination of the crane’s reach and over-the-road travel performance lowers our operating costs, and that translates into cost savings for our customers,” he adds.

The compact Terex AC 100/4L all-terrain crane is the only one in the 120-ton capacity class to feature a standard truck width of 8'5", making it possible to position the crane in tight locations.

With its 194'11" telescopic boom and the 26'3" section of its 62'4" long double-folding jib, the crane also features one of the longest boom-and-jib lengths (226'3") that can travel on four axles.

A powerful 445-hp engine is responsible for the crane’s cost-effective operation, excellent road-traveling performance, and outstanding fuel economy.

Duffy Crane & Hauling put its new crane to work right away, lifting a power distribution center from the inside of the manufacturer’s facility to a trailer for the trip to its new home. “Right out of the gate, we were impressed with the AC 100/4L,” says Cummings. “We made a great investment."
