fourth terex® AC 500-2 crane for Havator

ZWEIBRÜCKEN, July 4th, 2014 – Havator Crane Rental, based in Tornio, Finland, took delivery of their fourth 500 tonne capacity class Terex® AC 500-2 all terrain crane. Supplied with maximum jib and counterweight, and equipped with the sideways super lift (SSL) system, it will be employed throughout Scandinavia in the harbour, petrochemical, steel and offshore sectors.

According to Havator’s Project Manager, Arto Salo: “We are very familiar with this model of Terex crane which has given us excellent service in the past. We are particularly impressed with its 90 metre luffing jib and its X-pattern outriggers which are a distinct advantage. From a logistics standpoint, we also save time and money by having standard counterweights across our Terex fleet.”

Terex Senior Sales Manager for Finland, Pertti Isokorpi, is delighted that the company’s long-standing relationship with Havator is continuing, ”Havator is an important customer and we look forward to working alongside them in the months and years ahead.”

 

About the Terex® AC 500-2 all terrain crane

With a carrier just 17.1 m (56 ft) long, the Terex® AC 500-2 is the most compact eight-axle crane in its class. A maximum working height of 145.8 m (478 ft) can be achieved with a luffing fly jib. The crane offers enormous power across the full lifting capacity range due to features such as the improved design of the main boom cross-section and the reinforced sideways super lift system. The star-shaped outrigger layout helps to ensure the stability required. Short setup times and the IC-1 control system's ease of use make for safe crane operations and comfortable working conditions. The carefully thought-out drive design of the crane provides outstanding transfer of engine power, yielding excellent performance on both the highway and the jobsite.
