Terex Cranes is expanding its rough terrain range with the addition of a new 100-ton model, the RT 100US, which offers a five-section, full-hydraulic boom that extends to 154ft (469m), and a 56ft (170m) bi-fold jib to further extend vehicle’s reach.
Dr Suresh Natarajan, director product management rough terrain cranes, Terex Cranes, said, “We’ve seamlessly integrated a lot of great features that will help our customers be more productive on the job, while reducing transportation costs.
“Safety, quality, reliability and performance have been key areas that help sustain the residual value of the crane when customers decide it’s time to upgrade to a new machine.”
In the vehicle cab, customizable, electro-proportional joysticks and an intuitive touchscreen provide the operator with precise controls suited to individual preferences.
The crane is versatile, featuring four steering modes – tailored to the differing requirements of each job site – while an automatic engine monitoring system delivers fuel savings without requiring operator attention.
“Crane owners and operators have been asking for a unit that has a high capacity range with competitive load charts and long reach,” added Natarajan. “The Terex RT 100US rough terrain crane is the result of that demand and feedback from customers. It is cost effective to operate and transport and integrates many operator-friendly features making the crane simple and smooth to operate.”
The crane is branded RT 100US in North America and Latin America, but will be known as RT 90 for the rest of world.
