MALINA CRANES GETS FIRST TEREX® EXPLORER 5800 ALL TERRAIN CRANE
IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
ZWEIBRÜCKEN, GERMANY April 10, 2014 - Ostrava-based Malina Crane Hire has taken delivery of the first Terex® Explorer 5800 all terrain crane in the Czech Republic. For this occasion, owner and president, Radek Malina, visited the Terex Zweibrücken facility to pick up the crane and drive it himself to Ostrava, Czech Republic.
Incorporating a 5-axle, all wheel steer carrier that is just 13.2 m (43.3 ft) long and 3 m (9.8 ft) wide with a 70 m (229.7 ft) 5-section boom, the versatility of the Explorer 5800 crane will be primarily utilized in the chemical and construction industries. The crane was sold via ISOS Trade, Terex Cranes distributor in the Czech Republic.
Comments Radek Malina: “I chose this crane because it's a very modern machine with a forward looking concept. Besides being the most compact crane in its category, it has the longest boom. This does not only represent an advantage for us, but also for our customers as for some cases they only need to get a smaller machine doing the work of a bigger one.”
Terex Cranes Regional Sales Manager, Andreas Schramm comments: “Relationships in this industry are everything, and we are proud to have a 30 year long standing relationship with our customers in the Czech Republic via our distributor ISOS Trade.”
The Explorer 5800 crane uses a one engine concept, reducing cost of ownership and maintenance complexity versus having two Stage IV/Tier 4 final engines. Commenting about the one engine concept, Mr. Malina says: “It's the future, and at Malina we invest for the future. With how far engine technology has come, the advantages of having one engine are evident, and it's a matter of time until it gets widely implemented throughout the industry. I am happy to be one of the early adopters, as this perfectly embodies Malina Crane’s forward thinking mentality.”
After the handover and handshake, Radek Malina started his 1020 km drive towards the crane’s new home in Ostrava.
About the Terex® Explorer 5800 all terrain crane
Incorporating a 5-axle, all wheel steer carrier that is just 13.2 m (43.3 ft) long and 3 m (9.8 ft) wide, the Explorer 5800 all terrain crane can be configured with a 10 x 8 x 10 drive steer option and a 70 m (229.7 ft) 5-section boom. Alternatively, boom off and dolly configurations are available for the USA, Canada, Norway, Australia and Japan.
The crane is designed so that the 70.2 t (77.4 USt) counterweight can be automatically rigged. A major new feature of the Explorer 5800 crane is the single engine concept. Powered by a Scania 405kw/550hp engine complying with Euromot Stage IV/US EPA Tier 4 Final directives, the crane employs the latest engine management system to enhance performance for both road travel and lifting. Fuel efficiency is enhanced using stop/start technology for the upper cabin and engine remapping depending on what type of operation is being performed, lifting or travelling.
The latest Terex IC-1 touch screen control system, along with radio remote control, makes rigging and on-site operation safe and efficient. The control system provides the operator with accurate load moment measurements and wind speeds and simplifies the way the crane operates when handling the most demanding lifts. Designed to operate globally, the system includes 14 pre-programmed languages.
Also new is the 2.85 m (9.35 ft) walk-through carrier cabin with air conditioning, which is ergonomically designed to enhance the operator’s day-to-day experience.
A powerful hydraulic system for crane operation allows up to four simultaneous working movements via two, 2-axis pilot controlled joysticks that can be programmed to accommodate up to three different operators.
