Terex Launches New Cranes for North America at ICUEE

Next month at ICUEE, Waverly, Iowa-based Terex Cranes will introduce several new truck-mounted cranes for the North American market. These machines include the TLC 380.3 and 345VWB knuckleboom cranes and BT 3870T and BT 3851 boom trucks.

The Terex TLC 380.3 features an outrigger width of 24’3” and an endless slewing area, enabling it to work in tough conditions. Eight hydraulic extensions allow for a maximum reach of 68’11”. The lightweight, heavy-duty crane was developed to work with a variety of accessories, including a winch, fly jib, pallet fork and brick stack grab. Special features include a load-sensing drive for energy efficient operation and a standard remote control system.

Built for the wallboard industry, the Terex TLC345VWB knuckleboom crane features three hydraulic extensions, interior extension rams, and a reach of approximately 65 feet. The twin-slewing device offers smooth and accurate movements, while the robust design provides less bowing under load, allowing for more precise work. Additionally, the TLC 345VWB features a four-steel plate design surrounding the second jib.

Two new boom trucks also will be on display: the 19-ton Terex BT 3870T, which has a 70-foot fully proportional telescopic keel boom, enhanced dual operator control stations, and a load moment indicator with Work Area Definition. Ideal applications for this crane include residential construction, roofing systems, road work, equipment placing, transportation, self-loading and unloading materials, and rental services.

Terex’s BT 3851 features a 19-ton maximum lifting capacity and a 51-foot boom. Maximum tip height with a jib is 88 feet. Mounted on a 2004 Sterling LT7501 chassis, the machine weighs 60,000 pounds and measures 31’10” long, 8-foot wide, and 13’2” high. The crane features a Caterpillar C-7 7.2-liter I-6 engine as standard, which produces 300 hp at 2,200 rpm. Transmission is provided by Eaton Fuller.
