November 14 - Terex Cranes has donated a pink paint job on Phoenix Crane Rental's new Terex T 340-1 hydraulic truck crane, to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

The newly painted 40-tonne capacity crane left the Terex factory in Waverley, Iowa and travelled to Atlanta, Georgia, where it was put on display at a 2-day walk to raise money for breast cancer research.

From there the crane will be added to Phoenix Crane's fleet of lifting equipment, which includes 70 models ranging from 12-tonne boom trucks to 275-tonne hydraulic truck cranes. This is the second T 340-1 crane that the company has had painted pink to raise money for the cause.

Phoenix Crane also plans to donate a portion of the hourly rental revenues from both pink cranes to the breast cancer research organisation.

The T 340-1 crane features a 28.7 m main boom length and a 44.8 m maximum tip height when equipped with its extended jib and can reach highway speeds of up to 60 mph.

Operating the new crane will be Jessica Ives, Phoenix Crane's first female crane operator.
