Terex crane for The Crane

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.

Pictured below, the key to the new crane was presented to by Terex Cranes sales & service leader for Southeast Asia & India, Bradley Abrahams, and Terex Cranes business development manager, Brad Lee, during a special handover event at The Crane's Sriracha Chonburi location.
