Terex Cranes to Unveil New Crossover 4500 Boom Truck at ICUEE 2011, USA

Wed September 28, 2011 - National Edition

Terex Cranes will be exhibiting two boom truck cranes on Booth N L 316 at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition 2011 (ICUEE), to be held from Oct. 4 to 6 at the Kentucky Exhibition Center, Louisville, Ky.

The company’s presence will be highlighted by the unveiling of the new Terex Crossover 4500, a 45 ton (41 t) capacity class boom truck, as well as the Terex Crossover 6000 that was launched at ConExpo earlier this year.

Well-matched to a broad field of applications, the new Terex Crossover 4500 boom truck offers a 360 degree main boom load chart. Featuring a 105-ft. (32 m), four-section boom with optional 39 to 49 ft. (11.9 to 14.9 m) lattice jib extensions, this new model lifts up to 45 tons (40.8 t) at a 9-ft. (2.7 m) radius. Maximum main boom tip height is 110 ft. (33.5 m) for a maximum sheave height of 155 ft. (47.2 m) with 49-ft. (14.9 m) jib.

Due to the company’s X-pattern outrigger design, center of gravity is repositioned to reduce stress on the chassis for increased longevity. Maximum precision and ease of operation is enhanced through a joystick controlling hoist, swing and boom elevation, a pedal operating swing brake and boom telescoping, and hand and pedal controls for engine rpm management. A rated capacity limiter with pictograph display and settable alarms offers simple work area definition.
