CP CRANE TAKES DELIVERY OF FIRST terex® CROSSOVER 8000 BOOM truck IN CANADA
designed to outlift any other boom truck in north america
ZWEIBRÜCKEN, October 31, 2014 – Canadian Professional Crane, Inc., (CP Crane) of Waterdown, Ontario, Canada, recently purchased a new 80 US t (72.5 t) Terex® Crossover 8000 boom truck, the first one sold in Canada. According to Aram Malek of CP Crane, the company needed a crane that could handle up to 80 US t but would also keep a small footprint and only require one operator. The Crossover 8000 boom truck met all of CP Crane’s needs.
CP Crane’s Crossover 8000 superstructure is mounted on a 2014 Freightliner 114SD chassis, configured with a 126-ft (38 m) fully powered, 4-section boom with a quick reeve boom head and a 33- (10 m) to 57-ft (17 m) offset jib. The X-pattern outrigger design on the Crossover 8000 crane eliminates the need for the front stabilizer jack. This decreases overall crane length and weight. The Terex Crossover 8000 crane is also equipped with a quick-reeving hook block featuring five sheaves to offer its maximum capacity, giving it the flexibility to handle some complex lifts. With these features, the Crossover 8000 provides CP Crane with the strongest lift capacity of any boom truck available in North America.
“Thanks to the crane’s capacity and boom length,” says Mr. Malek, “CP Crane is able to take on more jobs with the new Crossover 8000. The additional capacity and the compact footprint allows us to lift massive loads in tight areas, giving us an edge over our competitors. And, having one operator on the job saves us a considerable amount of expense we would otherwise have to incur when using a crane that can handle this amount of weight.“
Other factors that weighed into CP Crane’s purchase was that the Crossover 8000 crane has minimal weight per axle and travel speeds of up to 70 mph (113 kmh), enabling the company’s crews to drive the crane directly to most work sites. CP Crane’s Crossover 8000 also carries full counterweights on board, so there is no need for a separate shipment or the headache of adding and removing the weights for transport. And, because the Crossover 8000 boom truck does not require a front stabilizer jack, CP Crane’s setup time will be considerably reduced.
The company purchased the new Crossover 8000 boom truck from Cropac Equipment Inc., a Terex Cranes distributor they have worked with before. “Cropac is a company with a reputation for carrying only quality equipment, and our work demands zero downtime and efficiency,” says Mr. Malek. “CP Cranes has always stood by Cropac and we know Terex has a reliable and durable product, which is a key to running a successful crane rental operation. In our fast-paced industry, no one can afford any downtime.”
About the Terex® Crossover 8000 boom truck
Introduced at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in March, 2014, the new Terex Crossover 8000 is an 80 US t (72.5 t) capacity class boom truck that blends truck crane and boom crane designs to offer a 360-degree load capacity that outlifts any other boom truck in North America. And, the Crossover 8000 boom truck offers almost identical load ratings throughout most lift situations, regardless if lifting from the front, rear or sides of the crane.
Designed for optimum performance over a broad range of applications including construction, road work, equipment placing and maintenance and rental services, the Crossover 8000 crane’s four-section main boom offers a 126-ft (38 m) length with a 189-ft (57.6 m) maximum tip height. Two available jib designs – fixed length 33 ft (10 m) and extendable to 57 ft (17 m) – offer 0-, 15- and 30-degree offset positions, providing easy reach when lifting over objects.
The Crossover 8000 crane boasts a unique X-pattern outrigger design that allows for enhanced all-around lift capabilities. This feature lowers the overall center of gravity and isolates the crane’s upper structure from the truck chassis, reducing chassis torsion and extending its lifetime. The X-pattern outrigger positioning also eliminates the need for the front stabilizer jack, decreasing the crane’s overall length and weight. The crane’s 3-position outrigger – minimum 6.5-ft (2.0 m), middle 19-ft, 9.3 in (5.9 m), and maximum 26-ft (7.9 m) position span – allows the Crossover 8000 boom truck to be used in confined spaces and further enhances the crane’s maneuverability.
The Crossover 8000 is the first boom truck to feature the latest Terex operator’s cab, designed to boost productivity and comfort. Moreover, an infinitely variable tilt-up operator cab of up to 18 degrees delivers improved vision of the work area.
