The Solar Decathalon is a competition featuring universities in the US, Canada and Europe. Contestants are judged on the functionality, aesthetics and efficiency of the buildings. We worked one week assembling the buildings for Hogeschool Utrecht (Netherlands) and Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne (Switzerland).

Duffy Crane & Hauling - Terex AC 100 4LWaverly, IA, March 30 2016, — Duffy Crane & Hauling of Denver, Colo., is expanding its fleet and service offerings with a newly commissioned Terex® AC 100/4L all terrain crane. Founded in 1886, Duffy Crane & Hauling is a family-owned company specializing in the lifting and transportation of overweight and over dimension loads. The company added the Terex AC 100/4L for its impressive 194-ft (59 m) boom length, the largest of the 120-ton (100 t) 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 at 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 (58 m) 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 because of the crane’s boom length, they have 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 crane in the 120-ton (100 t) capacity class to feature a standard truck width of 8.4 ft (2,6 m) making it possible to position the crane in tight locations. With a telescopic main boom of 194.9 ft (59,4 m) and the 26.2 ft (8 m) section of its 62.34 ft (19 m) long double folding jib, the crane also features one of the longest system lengths (226.4 ft / 69 m) that can travel on four axles. A powerful 445-hp (332 kW) 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 so they could transport it to its new home. “Right out of the gate, we were impressed with the AC 100/4L,” says Cummings. “We made a great investment."
