Rough-terrain crane buyers are on the hunt for bigger machines, in the 100-ton and 120-ton classes specifically. Crane manufacturers serving the North American market heard their customers loud and clear, and took advantage of ConExpo 2020 to unveil new models.
English crane rental company John Sutch Cranes ordered five cranes, with its shopping list consisting of a Demag AC 220-5, two Demag AC 60-3's, and two used Challenger 3160 all terrain cranes.
Owner John Sutch pre-arranged the order with Tim Leech, Terex Cranes regional sales manager, a few weeks ago in Liverpool, England.
Terex Corporation announced that following the completion of the sale of Demag mobile cranes to Tadano Ltd. , Steve Filipov, president of Terex Cranes, is leaving the company effective August 5, 2019.
"We are grateful to Steve [Filipov] for leading this transition," said John L.
Cropac Equipment with locations throughout Atlantic and eastern Canada continues to see a growing demand for tower cranes throughout its territory and recently invested in several new Terex tower cranes. The order includes:
Terex SK 415-20 hammerhead tower cranes
Terex CTT 132-6, CTT 332-16 and CTT 472-20 flat top tower crane models
Terex CTL 260-18 luffing jib tower cranes
Cropac Business Development Manager James Graham said the company added a significant amount of tower cranes to its inventory in the last 12 months, and expects to add many more in the future.
British crane rental company Coussens Crane Hire, which is based in Bexhill-on-Sea in East Sussex, has just added two new Demag all terrain cranes to its fleet: Not only a Demag AC 60-3 with a 164 ft. (50-m) main boom, but also a Demag AC 100-4L with a 195 ft.
Cosmo Cranes recently commissioned two new Demag all terrain cranes, a Demag AC 300-6 and a Demag AC 130-5. Both cranes are equipped with the IC-1 Plus control system that provides the operator with access to real-time lifting information. The cranes have already been used on several projects throughout Australia.
Everyone at Hallbergmoos, Germany-based Tecra-Autokran GmbH is extremely happy with the quality and performance of their Demag AC 100-4L all-terrain crane, which is evidenced by the fact that the company has now ordered its second Demag crane of this model.
For Wolfgang Klenner, managing director of the Munich crane specialist Klema, the Demag AC 130-5 is the ideal crane for moving heavy industrial machinery.
"Thanks above all to the variable axle loads of either [11 or 13.2 ton] and the innovative IC-1 Plus control system, we can use this crane extremely flexibly," said Klenner, citing two important reasons for ordering the Demag AC 130-5, which in a few months will expand Klema's fleet.
Select Crane Hire from Kent, England, made substantial upgrades to its fleet, finalizing a deal with Terex Cranes for a total of nine tower cranes. United Kingdom's leading building services provider selected four new Terex CTT 202-10 flat top tower cranes, unveiled the first day of bauma, and five Terex CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower cranes.
On the opening day of this year's bauma, Algerian Terex Cranes distributor ETS SIAD Automobiles (Groupe SIAD) signed an order for nine Terex rough terrain cranes. In detail, the order comprises six Terex RT 45 and three RT 45L rough terrain cranes.
Empire Crane in North Syracuse, N.Y., recently added its first Terex RT 100US rough terrain crane. The recently introduced 100-ton (90 t) crane offers a five section, fully hydraulic boom that extends up to 154 ft. (47 m). Empire Crane has added the RT 100US to its inventory, which includes several Terex crane models.
