A Fassi F1150RA.2.28 L616 xhe-dynamic loader crane for timber construction in Löf an der Mosel, Germany
Löf an der Mosel (Germany) – The Niederdürenbach-based company Holzbau Dahm GmbH has recently pulled off a complex operation involving fitting the roof structure onto the shell of a detached house with an attached office wing in Löf an der Mosel in western Germany. The Fassi F1150RA.2.28 L616 xhe-dynamic crane used for the job was mounted on a new bright green FMX Volvo four-axle truck and, due to its maximum outreach of nearly 32 m with a jib, was able to lift the structure as well as a masonry saw, pallet jack and two pallets of aircrete blocks over an unsurfaced access area to the rear of the premises.
The crane was aided by its IMC-unit (Integral Machine Control), which calculates one hundred percent lifting capacity to the right side of the vehicle through more than 180 degrees. The crane is also equipped with a winch, which proved to be of great importance during the operation, as too was the V7 RRC remote control, which driver Dominik Hermann described as: “not only giving you optimal control over the crane, but also supplying you with detailed feedback about the current load conditions, [it] really makes work so much easier”. With 23 employees, Holzbau Dahm specialises in providing classical carpentry work through to roofing, monument conservation of monuments and the complete construction of timber houses.
