About the new 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® AC 100/4L all terrain crane

In the 100t capacity class the Terex® AC 100/4L combines high maneuverability with outstanding performance and fast rigging times. Equipped with a 59.4-meter main boom, 19 meter folding swing-away jib and 8 meter variable extension system, this compact and powerful all terrain crane is capable of reaching an impressive 81.7 meter maximum system length. Well-adapted to a wide range of applications, its compact size and 2.55-meter standard truck width make the AC 100/4L ideal for operation on confined jobsites, often only accessible by smaller, less powerful machines. Combining power and versatility, the AC 100/4L offers a broader operating range than any other all terrain crane in its class, completed by exceptional lifting capacity within 12-tonne axle-load limitations.


About the Terex® AC 40/2L all terrain crane

Designed for optimum roadability and versatility, the AC 40/2L features the longest main boom in its category offering a reach of up to 37.4-meters, for a maximum tip height of 47 meters. Combining the advantages of short telescoping times and high load telescoping capacity in all configurations, this highly mobile, 2-axle all terrain crane is capable of lifting up to 40-tonnes at 2.6-meter radius. Equipped with independent rear steering and an easy-to-operate counterweight unloading system - to make it simple for users to spread the load equally across each axle - the AC 40/2L offers driving speeds of up to 80 km/h.


About the Terex® RT 35 rough terrain crane

Equipped with three steering modes, six-speed powershift forward and reverse four-wheel drive transmission, telescopic boom and a comfortable ergonomic operator cab, the RT 35 is as versatile as it is simple and comfortable to operate for long working hours. Offering a maximum lifting capacity of 35 tonnes at 3-meter radius, its 4-section synchronized boom is extendable from 9.1 to 30.1 meters to a maximum tip height of 32.8 meters. Designed for productive performance in a broad field of lifting applications, the RT 35 rough terrain crane combines the benefits of quick and easy maintenance with reliable, versatile performance for excellent return on investment.

The Terex CTT181B-8 TS21 provides a maximum lifting capacity of 8 tonnes, a maximum jib length of 65 meters and 180 mt load moment. The main jib is adjustable at 5-meter intervals from 35 to 65 meters. Capacity at maximum jib length is 1.90 tonnes.
