9 March 2017
100 Us ton capacity Terex® crane debuts at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017
Terex Cranes expands its rough terrain crane product family with the US introduction of the latest model in the Terex rough terrain lineup. The 100-US ton capacity, Terex® RT 100US model offers a five section, full hydraulic boom that extends 154 ft. A 56 ft bi-fold jib further enhances the reach and versatility of the crane. Designed for easy operation, the Terex RT 100US rough terrain features a control system with integrated diagnostics, a new ergonomic cab design with an 18-degree tilt and an easy to access flat deck for safety, superior usability and comfort.
“Our development efforts for the Terex RT 100US crane revolved around the needs of our customers” explains Dr. Suresh Natarajan, Director Product Management Rough Terrain Cranes at Terex Cranes. “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.”
Operators can access lift information through the Terex IC-1 control system, which offers efficient and intuitive touchscreen operation as well as all load charts. The electro-proportional joysticks and an integrated system design provide the operator with precision controls. The setup of joystick functions can be configured to the operator’s own preferences. The Terex RT 100US crane also features four steering modes, including two-wheel, four-wheel, crab and independent rear axle steering for easy positioning and extensive versatility on the jobsite. Load capacity with asymmetric outrigger positions can be enhanced with our Capacity-Pro feature. Our Eco-Pro feature is designed to help the operator keep the focus on crane operation by managing the engine automatically, while also delivering fuel savings.
The Terex RT 100US rough terrain crane is cost effective to transport and operate. It has a narrow width of just 9.8 ft and removable counterweight, which allows it to be trailered without weight and width restrictions in most situations. The crane's central lubrication system also helps to reduce service costs and time.
The Terex RT 100US crane is in compliance with both European and US regulations, and is available with either a Tier 4F or Tier 3 engine to serve global market needs. By combining the expertise of our design teams across the globe, we were able to think globally to bring our customers improved efficiency, while catering to their local 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.”
