Baumann crane specification guide 2013 for mobile cranes and heavy haulage
In the last days we’ve finished and delivered the latest crane specification guide for the crane hire and heavy haulage company Baumann from Bornheim in Germany.
The company received the new pocket crane guides in size DIN A6 in good time before the celebration of a big upcoming corporate event.
In June Baumann will celebrate its 125th anniversary. The well known company was founded as a transport business in 1888 by Heinrich Baumann. Since then the transport company has grown to one of the major heavy haulage companies in Germany and Europe.

Terex Superlift 3800 Crawler crane
My second visit on the first day of Bauma 2013 was at the booth of Terex cranes. This was right beside the Liebherr stand and I was looking forward to have a direct comparison of both of the competitors.
As Terex is a crane manufacturer with a most versatile product range of cranes, I was full of expectations. These expectations were also raised by the long white lattice boom that could be seen from far.
Though Terex has such a wide variety of brands and cranes in its portfolio, the crane manufacturer has shown only three cranes on the booth.
One of them was the crawler crane Superlift 3800. It was presented to customers for the first time in 2012 in the Zweibrücken facilities. Read full story
Tadano ATF 400G-6 for Davies Crane Hire on Bauma 2013
My second day on the Bauma construction fair started with a long visit of the booth of the German crane manufacturer Tadano cranes in the open air area.
Tadano has the most mobile cranes on display after crane manufacturer Liebherr.
It is probably the booth with the highest all terrain crane density in relation to the present space.
Tadano all terrain cranes
Nearly all of the all terrain cranes from the current Tadano product range are on display. The ATF 40G-2 and the ATF 50G-3 are the only cranes that are not shown. In detail Bauma visitors can inspect the following all terrain cranes: Read full story

This morning started the 30th Bauma trade fair in Munich. It’s the biggest trade fair for the construction business in general and also most important exhibition for all kinds of cranes, access platforms, heavy transport machines and any heavy lifting stuff.
To me the most interesting and fascinating exhibitors of course are the divers crane manufacturers. So I was very curious to see the new cranes the crane manufacturers have on display. I started my tour today on the open air area on the booth of Liebherr cranes.
The Liebherr crane booth was the same like 2010: Massive, huge and again much impressive! Read full story
