Coussens is up for the Challenge(r)

February 17 - Terex has delivered a Challenger 3160 all-terrain crane to Coussens of Bexhill in the UK.

The family owned crane hire and heavy haulage specialist now runs five Terex cranes in its fleet.

The new three-axle Challenger 3160 has a lift capacity of 55 tonnes and features a 50 m main boom. The model was chosen for its compact dimensions, manoeuverability, and best in class boom length. "When other cranes need triple or quadruple reeving, the Challenger does the job with just one or two lines," explained Paul Coussens, co-owner of the company.

"Another important plus point is the crane's minus 5 degree boom incline. It means the operator doesn't have to work at height to reeve the crane, which represents a significant safety advantage. So too is the Challenger's radio remote control system," Coussens added.
