Fassi - Birnbaum Im Lesachtal

Heavy-duty Fassi knuckle-boom crane helps to build a mountain lodge in Austria

Birnbaum Im Lesachtal (Austria) – Last week, the company, HBT-Holzbau Team GmbH, which specializes in carpentry and wood construction and is based in Kötschach-Mauthen, undertook the construction of a mountain lodge on a hillside in Birnbaum Im Lesachtal, Carinthia (the southernmost state of Austria). This was achieved with the help of the larger of the two Fassi loader cranes belonging to the company, which was instrumental in the construction process.

The heavy-duty crane is fitted with an L414 fly-jib and installed on a 4-axle Mercedes Arocs truck, and was used not only to lift construction materials, but to place entire walls of the building, which is a perfect demonstration of the type of precision work for which this crane was designed.
