CEG ConExpo Coverage
Over 40 Terex Machines to be Featured at ConExpo 2014
Embracing the theme of ConExpo — the “future of construction” — the show will see Terex featuring new products from across its entire product range, including AWP, construction, materials processing, utilities and, of course, cranes. In total, some 40 Terex machines will be on display on the 50,000 sq. ft. Gold Lot 1045. Many of these will remain under wraps until the show itself, and cranes are no exception.
One crane that Terex is talking about is the Superlift 3800 crawler crane, which will be exhibited in an even larger configuration than at Bauma. According to Terex, the new Superlift has been designed to redefine performance in the 650 t capacity class and is a more than worthy successor to the highly regarded CC 2800-1.
Requiring up to 30 percent less counterweight for long boom erection and complete with new-style cabin and Terex fall protection system, the Superlift has a maximum lift capacity of 650 ton (590 t) at 39 ft. (12 m) and a maximum hook height of 623 ft. (190 m). Maximum load moment is 9,288 ton (8,426 t). All the crane's components weigh less than 40 ton (36 t) and are below 9.8 ft. (3 m) in width and height to facilitate ease of transportation.
Rüdiger Zollondz, director product marketing, Terex Cranes said, “With its focus on innovation, capacity and productivity — and especially in the configuration we have planned — the Superlift 3800 promises to be one of the highlights of ConExpo 2014. It continues the well-established Terex tradition of helping customers to deliver the results that matter — jobs that are on time, on budget and to specification.”
Visitors to Lot 1045 wanting to see something brand new at ConExpo will not be disappointed. No less than three Terex cranes will be making their debut: a new, mid-size all terrain crane, which specifically addresses the needs of the North American market; a new, class-defining truck mounted crane; and finally, a large rough terrain crane offering increased lift capacities. All cranes are designed with customer needs in mind.
In addition to products, Terex will be focusing on service and support, and Terex Financial Services (TFS) will be on hand to provide expert help and advice. TFS will explain the wide range of finance and leasing options on offer and assist in all areas of asset management, from the analysis of future equipment values through to the disposal of used equipment.
Roger Jones, director of product support and customer satisfaction, Terex Cranes said, “Our goal is to give our customers the confidence and reassurance they need wherever they are in the world. Confidence from knowing that their crane is being cared for by factory-trained professionals, and reassurance from knowing that Terex has the people and resources to deliver a complete package of after-sales support.”
Terex team members from many countries will be available throughout the show to discuss and explain the 2014 product range.
Terex also will be supporting the AEN “I make America” Initiative at ConExpo. Terex has been supporting this initiative for years and will offer a special contribution during the show.
