UK rental company Southern Cranes and Access has taken delivery of the UK’s first 160 tonne Terex Explorer 5600 All Terrain crane.
The five-axle 5600 features a seven section 68 metre main boom and a 21 metre bi-fold swingaway with a 12 metre straight insert, offering a maximum tip height of 94.6 metres. Features include a single engine concept, a new cab design, start/stop function and Terex’s IC-1 control system. It also has varying axle load configurations of 9.1, 12 and 16.5 tonnes.
The new crane - along with three other Explorer 5600s destined for ABA Crane Hire, King Lifting and Sangwin Crane Hire - was on show at Terex’s open day last month – see: Terex UK open day.
