Terex upgrades 3800 Boom Booster kit

Terex has announced an extension to its Boom Booster kit for the Terex Superlift 3800/ Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane, extending the maximum system length to 183 metres.

The kit’s new configurations and lengths are the result of removing lighter boom sections at the top of the boom, and adding two more 3.5 metre wide Boom Booster sections at the base, attaching to the boom root or foot section.

Up to nine 12 metre long boom booster sections can now be used for a total length of 108 metres compared to 84 metres on the original kit. In order to get the long boom configurations off the ground the Superlift mast length extends to 42 metres with an additional 2.5 metre section

Having the additional boom booster sections is said to improve capacities by another 30 percent. The sections come with the Demag fall protection system as standard. Superlift Split Tray and Flex Frame options are also available. When both systems work together the time required for re-arranging counterweights between raising the boom and working with the crane is substantially shorter. While eliminating the need for an assist crane for re-stacking. The Flex Frame also allows flexible setting of the superlift counterweight radius from 13 to 21 metres with full counterweight on the tray.

The new Boom Booster kit is available with new crane purchases or is as a simple retrofit package for existing Terex Superlift 3800 and Demag CC 3800-1 models.
