NEW TEREX® TOPLIFT 025G WINS TOP AWARD
AT BICES 2011, BEIJING, CHINA
Zweibruecken, 06 January, 2012 –The new Terex® Toplift 025G, a 25 tonne capacity class truck crane, was awarded first place for “Machinery Exterior Design and Quality” in China’s popular local-market 25-tonne crane sector at BICES 2011.
The award follows the unveiling of the new Terex® Toplift 025G and Terex® Toplift 055G, 25 and 55-tonne capacity class truck cranes, at an official ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by more than 100 journalists at this year’s event.
“We are proud to have won this award. This marks a great start for the future success of our new Toplift truck cranes in China and Eastern Asia,” says Frank Bardonaro, Vice President & Managing Director Global Sales, Terex Cranes.
Designed to accomplish even the most complex lifts, and with more of the technological innovations and styling details found throughout the entire Terex family of cranes in other major world markets, these new truck cranes are the result of the Terex® Chang Jiang joint venture and are manufactured locally at the company facility in Luzhou.
As Ken Lousberg, President, Terex China explains, “Both of these new models are strongly inspired by feedback from our customers and distributors, and combine Chang Jiang’s legacy for strength and lift performance with the latest Terex innovations.”
About the Terex® Toplift 025G
Built specifically for China’s largest crane market segment, the 25 tonne capacity class Terex Toplift 025G features a new transmission that boosts maximum travel speeds by approximately 4 percent over previous class offerings to reduce transport time to jobsites. Once on site, its 39 percent grade ability and 267-mm ground clearance allow the crane to navigate on uneven terrain, so it can be positioned close to the pick. An enhanced braking system significantly improves braking function and system adjustments.
The crane’s lightweight but powerful five-section boom offers a 39.05-m fully extended boom length and 39.19-m maximum lift height. Its 8.3-m jib manually swings into position and offers 1- and 30-degree offset positions. With a fully extended boom, maximum lift height extends to 48.4 m when using the jib.
The Toplift 025G features a single or dual winch design to accomplish even the most complex lifts for the popular 25-tonne crane market. When secured into position with its four hydraulic outriggers, the Toplift 025G offers a 25,000-kg lift capacity at 3.5-m radius.
About the Terex® Toplift 055G
With its 11.1-m base boom length, the Terex Toplift 055G’s robust five-section decagonal boom features a 42-m fully extended boom length and maximum 42.14-m lift height. Its swing out jib design extends maximum lift height to 56.6 m. The jib manually swings into position and offers 5-, 15-, and 30-degree offset positions. Offering a 55,000-kg lift capacity at a 3-m radius and a maximum 32-m fully extended working radius, this Terex crane efficiently handles a wide range of lifting needs.
The Toplift 055G’s powerful 247 kW diesel engine meets National Exhaust Standard IV and features a low cold-start temperature of -30° C. Delivering a maximum travel speed of 77 km/h to quickly get to and from the jobsite, the crane’s manual transmission gearbox boasts ZF-style air-boost shifting for easy navigation through the gear range. A wide wheelbase, 40 percent gradeability, two drive axles and two steering axles offer sure-footed on-site maneuverability and power.
