Manish Mathur, CEO-Cranes, Action Construction Equipment
Construction equipment conglomerate Action Construction Equipment (ACE) is betting big on demand emanating for cranes across infra development sectors and industries. The reason why it has expanded its range to include the new higher capacity ACX 800, 80-ton lattice boom crawler crane and other multi-utility mobile cranes. “More of the higher capacity crawler cranes are in the offing and will be introduced in the coming months,” informs Manish Mathur, CEO-Cranes, Action Construction Equipment.

“There is an emerging requirement of higher capacity crawler cranes in the light and medium segments, especially from rental companies which are keen to meet the application and safety criteria of project owners and developers. There is also a requirement of cranes for working at greater heights. So, we have developed new cranes to meet all these requirements of the crane rental companies that constitute a major business segment. We are confident that our cranes with their safety features, reliable performance, and lower cost of operations will offer the best solutions,” says Mathur.

Manoj Agarwal, Assistant Vice President, Marketing & Product Support
Manoj Agarwal, Assistant Vice President, Marketing & Product Support, HED Vertical at ACE informs that the ACX 800 which follows the existing ACX 750, 75-ton crawler, comes with retractable tracks for ease of transportation. It is highly suitable for construction of elevated roads and bridges where it can be used for setting up pier caps, concrete and steel girders. “The 80-ton crane will also be suitable for regular refinery shutdown maintenance, and as a supporting crane for windmill erection. It has standard safe load indicators for safety during operations, and lightweight, yet strong booms. The joystick controls is a new feature for enabling the crane to handle loads with complete precision.”

ACE range of crawler cranes comprises 40-55-75-80-tons and the company is now planning to widen its business scope by extending the range to 100-150-160-ton which will strengthen its position in the lighter capacity segment. Says Agarwal , “The design and prototype of the cranes are completed, and we will launch them in phases in the coming months. The products will be competitively priced.”

ACE widens cranes portfolio and introduces new backhoe loaders to meet demand from all segments of infra construction

The company is also promoting its multi-utility cranes for new application areas like piling and industrial material handling, with its range of attachments. “We are also bullish on our 360 degree slew crane and are promoting its application for infrastructure development and in industrial projects,” says Mathur. However, he sees continued demand for the conventional pic-n-carry cranes despite the more advanced products in the market like ACE’s multi-utility cranes. “There is still a large concentration of rental agencies that still prefer the pick-n-carry cranes owing to their mobility and versatility. In fact, I think that the segment will continue to grow.”

Manish Handa, Vice President & Business Head, Earth Moving & Road Construction Equipment Division, ACE
ACE is also promoting its 49, 74 and 95 hp backhoe loaders for infrastructure projects including rural infra development, and has extended its range to include the 95 hp with 4x4 drive for use in hilly terrains like the Northeast. Informs Manish Handa, Vice President & Business Head, Earth Moving & Road Construction Equipment Division, ACE, “Backhoe loaders will continue to evolve as a segment despite the challenge posed by the excavators. While some companies have gone slow on the 49 hp class, we are confident that it will remain in demand. Along with our other products, our newly introduced 95hp will deliver the lowest cost of operation and bring value for money to our customers through its high productivity and efficiency during front and back-end loading. It is equipped with the advanced Carraro axles, Parker hydraulics, and Mahindra engine. It has undergone extensive trials for two years and has proven to be highly reliable and durable. So, we are ready to strengthen our position in this segment despite the stiff competition.”
