Terex launches 650 tonne capacity crawler crane

November 30 - Terex Corporation, the American-based diversified equipment manufacturer, has announced the launch of its Superlift 3800 lattice boom crawler crane.

The new crane is the direct successor to Terex's CC 2800-1 crawler crane.

The new Superlift 3800 can lift a maximum load of 650 tonnes and is available to order immediately, says Terex, adding that system rigidity has been improved, for example the light extension LF can now lift loads up to 178 tonnes.

The Superlift 3800 can be delivered with an integrated wind kit in a universal main boom system enabling the crane to erect wind turbines of 117 m without using the available superlift boom configuration; nor requiring an assist crane to help erect the main boom.

Despite considerably higher rigidity, Terex says it has managed to reduce the weight of the basic machine by 17 tonnes improving the crane's transportability, adding that the measurements and the weight of components have been designed for ease of transport, including additional hoisting points on components including central hoisting points and hydraulic motors positioned within the track frame reducing transport size and preventing them from being damaged during transportation.
