October 25 - Two cranes built specifically for China's largest crane market segment have been launched by global manufacturer Terex.

The new Terex Toplift 025G and 055G truck cranes from the Terex Chang Jiang joint venture share much technology with the rest of the Terex family of cranes. Built in Luzhou, China, the new 25 and 55 tonne class cranes represent "the next advancement in bringing Terex design, operation and styling to the China market," says the company.

Frank Bardonaro, vice president and managing director global sales for Terex Cranes says: "The new truck cranes incorporate designs based on extensive customer and dealer feedback. They blend Chang Jiang's legacy for strength and lift performance with the latest Terex innovations."

Spacious new driver and operator cab designs greatly increase operator efficiency while ergonomic control placement and air conditioning provide the operator with an environment that enhances productivity over extended hours. The rated capacity indicator features a graphical display that provides immediate feedback of load weight and alerts the operator before the load is outside the rated lifting capacity for radius and configuration. Both cranes feature hydraulic hose and electrical wire routing common to other Terex crane models.
