June 22 - Thailand-based crane rental company, The Crane, a subsidiary of Chu Kai, is expanding its fleet with the addition of a new Terex® CC 6800 lattice boom crawler crane.

The Crane's Terex CC 6800 lattice boom crawler crane has a 1,250-tonne lifting classification, a maximum load moment of 13,952 tonnes and is designed for industrial operations.

Terex says that a simple assembly process allows for short setup times, a main boom variable offset for SW and SWSL configurations, and both a Quadro drive and hydraulically-assisted boom section pinning are standard features on the crane.

It is also equipped with redundant drive units, resulting in increased reliability at the site: If one of the two drive units fails, the other one takes its place. Finally, if the power supplied by both motors is not required, it is possible to save a considerable amount of fuel by simply using only one of them.

Janejira Praerangsi, managing director of The Crane company says: "We are anticipating growth in our markets over the next few years, and we wanted to make sure we are able to offer the best options among our competitors.
