About the new Terex® AC 40 Optimax all terrain crane
The new Terex AC 40 Optimax is designed for simplicity and cost-effective performance. As easy to maintain as it is to use by a single crane operator, the proven robust design of this highly versatile, 40-tonne capacity class, 2-axle all terrain crane combines high-lifting capacity and maneuverability. Offering a maximum lifting capacity of 35 tonnes at 3-meter radius, its synchronized telescopic boom – available with three or four sections (fourth section with chain - can be extended rapidly to provide a maximum reach of up to 23.4 meters (77 feet) and 30.4 meters (100 feet) respectively. Two, driven and steered axles with planetary hub reduction, and 4 x 4 control from both cabs ensure easy one man operation and high maneuverability. Powered by a 205 KW (279 HP) engine, the boom can be telescoped to its maximum length rapidly. An ergonomic operator cab equipped with Load Moment Indicator, digital LCD display and tinted windows provides excellent operational comfort and safety. Air-conditioning is optional.
