Ulferts & Wittrock adds Terex crawler

March 28 - German lifting and transport specialist Ulferts & Wittrock has taken delivery of the first Terex Superlift 3800 crawler crane.

The crane comes equipped with a 153 m main boom and a 12 m light fixed jib with a vario-superlift system with counterweight tray.

"We believe in investing in the latest technology to maintain our leadership position in the lifting business,' commented Klaus Wittrock, co-owner, Ulferts & Wittrock.

Every component is designed for worldwide transportation and to reduce erection times and the need for additional equipment. The Superlift 3800 can be delivered with an integrated wind kit in a universal main boom system. The crane is capable to erect wind turbines of 117 m without using the available superlift boom configuration. Also, an assist crane is not required to help erect the main boom in this configuration.

"We perform jobs all over Europe, so its outstanding transportability and efficient use of counterweight is a huge plus for us," Wittrock added.

Hermann Ulferts, co-owner and ceo added: "We will be erecting wind turbines with this crane, and the fact that a crane of this class can erect 150 m wind turbines is a remarkable achievement."
