Terex Cranes launches new 55 tonne crawler crane
Terex Powerlift 1000 has 'best-in-class reach and lifting capacity'
Terex Cranes has launched a new 55-tonne crawler crane, the Powerlift 1000, built in the company's factory in Jinan, Eastern China.
Launched at the bauma China show in Shanghai in November, the 203.5-mt load moment crane is targeted at contractors throughout China, Russia and India.
The 55m main lattice boom can be equipped with 6, 9, 12 or 15m fixed jibs, with 10° and 30° offsets.
Only 3m wide, the Powerlift 1000 is the most compact crawler crane in its class, with a 10% narrower structure than its closest competitor, said Terex.
The Shanghai launch was attended by executives including Kevin Bradley, president of Terex Cranes, and Ken Lousberg, president of Terex China.
“Our new Powerlift 1000 offers the longest main boom and fixed jib reach among competitive cranes,” said Lousberg.
“When we combine the efforts, talents and experience of our team members from around the world, great outcomes, like the Powerlift 1000 are possible."
“Built in our Jinan, China facility, the crane offers the most compact design in its class for fast and efficient transport without sacrificing lift or reach capabilities. This is just one example of how Terex Crane’s global presence and wealth of applications experience delivers value and competitive advantages for our customers.”
