BENGAL CRANE TAKES FIRST terex® explorer 5800 IN USA
ZWEIBRÜCKEN, December 5, 2014 – Bengal Transportation Services of Geismar, LA, USA, took delivery of the Explorer 5800 all terrain crane in August, the first of the Terex Explorer family to be sold in the USA. Bengal purchased the crane from Terex distributor Dozier Crane and immediately put the crane to work at an ammonia plant. “We were looking for a crane with the latest technology, and the Explorer 5800 met that need with its cutting edge design and one engine concept,” said Bryan Vigé of Bengal. “We are very pleased with the performance so far.”
About the Terex® Explorer 5800 all terrain crane
The 5-axle, 220 tonne (245 US ton) capacity class Explorer 5800 all terrain crane is designed for worldwide operation. Dimensions, variable axle load configurations, axle pair space, overhang, boom off solution, dolly operation: virtually all variables have been taken into account for worldwide roadability.
The crane is designed so that the 70.2 t (77.4 US t) counterweight can be automatically rigged and no additional part is wider than 2.5 m (8.2 ft).
A major feature of the Explorer 5800 crane is the single engine concept. Powered by a Scania 405kw/550hp engine complying with Euromot IV/Tier 4F directives, the crane employs the latest engine management system to enhance performance for both road travel and lifting. Fuel efficiency is provided 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, contributes to safe and efficient rigging and on-site operation. The control system provides the operator with accurate load moment measurements and wind speeds, and simplifies the way the crane operates when handling even the most demanding of 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, that 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.
