Canadian crane dealer Cropac Equipment has ordered 16 new Terex tower cranes.
The orders include units of the classic 20 tonne Terex SK 415-20 hammer head crane with 80 metre jib and 2.5 tonne jib tip capacity, the 20 tonne CTT 472-20 flat top tower crane with jib configurations from 30 to 80 metres, and jib tip capacities of 4.5 tonnes, and the 18 tonne CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower cranes with jib tip capacity of 2.9 tonnes and jib lengths to 61 metres. The units will be available from the company’s locations throughout Atlantic and Eastern Canada.
Cropac president, Bill Finkle, said: “Our latest orders reflect the strong demand in our territory for Terex tower cranes from both existing as well as new customers which is a testament to their performance, reliability and continuous innovation that leads the market. Cropac Equipment prides itself in its after sale service support and ensuring that we always have the right crane for our customers when they need it and the broad tower crane product offering from Terex allows us to do that.”
Business development manager James Graham added: “We have seen an increase in demand for luffing jib cranes due to enhanced work area restrictions and having a comprehensive luffing jib offering from Terex ranging from 110 to 65 tonnes as well as new Hydraulic luffer technology first introduced on the 12 tonne CTLH192-12, will allow us to continue to meet our customers’ evolving lifting needs.”

We appreciate their focus on developing the tower crane business in the eastern Canadian market over the least three years and their hard work has contributed to significant market share growth.”
