About the AC 40/2
The AC 40/2 and its sister model AC 40/2L are the latest models in a long lineage of 2-axle All-Terrain cranes produced by Terex in Montceau-Les-Mines, France. The compact, 2 axle, AC 40/2 evolved from this successful design and offers best-in-class boom length and strong capacity no matter the configuration. The AC 40 cranes offer 12% more load capacity on the main boom and 60% more on the extension compared to the previous version. The easy to operate counterweight unloading system makes it simple for users to equally load each axle.
The compact and powerful AC 40/2 is the bestseller of Montceau-Les-Mines plant and with over 1000 units sold since its introduction in June 2001, it is little wonder that the AC 40 has become the reference crane in its category.
