Terex has expanded its rough terrain crane range in the US with the introduction of a 100-ton model.
The RT 100US has a five section, full hydraulic boom able to extend to 154ft, while reach and versatility is further enhanced by a 56ft bi-fold jib.
The new model’s control system features integrated diagnostics with a new ergonomic cab design including an 18-degree tilt and an easy access flat deck for safety, superior usability and comfort. Operators are able to access lift information through the Terex IC-1 control system that has an intuitive touchscreen and all load charts.
“Our development efforts for the Terex RT 100US crane revolved around the needs of our customers” explains Dr. Suresh Natarajan, director of product management for rough terrain cranes at Terex. “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.”
With a width of 9.8ft and removable counterweight, the crane is easy and cost-effective to transport being able to be trailered without weight and width restrictions.
Compliant with both European and US regulations, the model is available with either a Tier 4F or Tier 3 engine to serve global market needs.
“Crane owners and operators have been asking for a unit that has a high capacity range with competitive load charts and long reach,” adds 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.”
