Using hydropneumatic suspension with axle load compensation you can manually or automatically alternatively level.

The equipment carrier engine is a diesel Scania 405 5 with a transmission system which is a ZF TraXon. The gearbox comes standard with an integrated hydraulic retarder, 16 forward speeds, 2 reverse, and a 2‑stage transfer case with a switchable longitudinal lock. This transmission gives operators the control they need in order to quickly and efficiently maneuver job sites. The AC 160 – 5 has a 5‑axle steering system, independent rear-axle steering, and dynamic launch control, these features enable the crane to get to areas where other cranes would simply get stuck. The outriggers are hydraulic which gives the operator vertical and horizontal control.

With a total length of only 14.51 meters (47.6 ft), the most compact crane of its capacity class. In combination with its excellent maneuverability, this especially makes it the crane of choice for work at sites with tight space conditions. The IC‑1 Plus control system incorporates smart technology that provides asymmetric outrigger positioning based on real-time determination of lifting capacities. This allows the crane to perform jobs usually reserved for larger machines.
