Remote Control Access – an Australian first!

Patterson Crane Hire commissioned the first radio remote control for AT cranes in Australia with help from Microtech Engineering.

After 9 months of research and development, the Victoria based company fitted a Hetronic Nova L Remote Control to a Terex/Demag AC25-1 Crane.

The first job for the remote control was for Theiss Services placing power poles among trees. The operator was able to walk through the trees, up to the hole and lower the poles in. It is an easier way to control the crane with the remote than from inside the crane itself. Clients are asking why we didn’t do this years ago!
