About the Terex® Challenger 3160 all-terrain crane
As compact as it is powerful, the new Terex Challenger 3160 is the only 3-axle, 55-tonne class capacity machine currently available that is designed for one-man operation. Offering a maximum lifting capacity of 35.6-tonnes at 4-meter radius, and equipped with a 50-metre, single cylinder telescopic boom, the new Terex Challenger 3160 provides self-contained, one-man operation within 12-tonne axle-load limitations. In countries where axle load limits are 10-tonnes, the crane can de-rig its own counterweight to reduce weight to less than 30 tonnes.
About the Terex® Roadmaster 5300 truck mounted crane
The latest 100-tonne addition to the Terex cranes range, the Roadmaster 5300 truck mounted crane is designed to offer low total cost of ownership in a wide variety of applications. Utilizing an innovative superstructure design and an outrigger frame concept developed by our engineers at the Terex Cranes facility in Montceau-les-Mines, France, the Roadmaster 5300 uses a commercial 5-axle truck carrier built by reputable truck manufacturers. Its innovative design offers best-in-class lifting capacity. The crane features two main boom options with 59.4 or 50 m boom length, and a maximum system length of 81.7 m or 77 m respectively. Its YX-type outriggers provide excellent stability. Efficient and simple to use by one crane operator, the new Roadmaster 5300 is capable of lifting a high load in roadable configuration and without the need for additional transport. Both simple and versatile, the new truck mounted crane is a taxi crane, ideal for crane rigging, residential construction, equipment placement and for rental companies.
