December 5 - Bengal Transportation Services of Geismar in the USA has taken delivery of a Terex Explorer 5800 all terrain crane - the first of the Explorer family to be sold in the USA.

Bengal purchased the crane from Terex distributor Dozier Cranes and immediately put it to work at an ammonia plant.

"We were looking for a crane with the latest technology, and the Explorer 5800 met that need with its cutting edge design and one engine concept," said Bryan Vigé of Bengal. 

The five-axle Explorer 5800 all terrain crane has a lifting capacity of 220 tonnes, and is designed so that the 70.2-tonne counterweight can be automatically rigged.
