New Terex flat top

Terex Tower Cranes has launched a new six tonne flat top tower crane, the 150 tonne/metre CTT 152-6.

The new crane offers jib lengths from 25 to 60 metres, with a choice of tower, and chassis configurations, offering free standing tower heights of up to 61.2 metres. Jib tip capacity on the 60 metre jib is 1.91 tonnes. The maximum capacity of six tonnes can be handled at up to 20 metres radius on a 60 metre jib. The new crane also introduces two new winch options - 18 or 22kW, providing speeds of up to 104 metres a minute.

It also incorporates Terex features such as Power Plus, T-Torque slewing with customisable settings for precision and smooth movements, while the Terex Power Match (TPM) system is said to reduce power consumption, making it more environmentally friendly. Optional features include the company’s T-Link Telematics Platform and the two person T-Lift Crane elevator with speeds of up to 40 metres a minute.

Part of the company’s City Class, the CTT 152-6 incorporates several design improvements, such as a pinned connection between the jib and slewing unit, along with the elimination of counter jib ballast basket, allowing the entire jib assembly to be rigged at ground level along with the hoist and trolley ropes. Each jib section includes a pre-assembled and independent safety line.
The crane has plenty of walkways and safe access routes

Maintenance is eased with grated walkways, platforms and safety rails in the jib and counter jib along with a wide electrical cabinet with dedicated platform on slewing unit. The entire upper part of the crane can also be transported in three truckloads of four HC 40ft containers.

The crane comes with the S-Pace Cab with a large, wide glazed area, for a panoramic views while other features include adjustable seating, stereo audio speakers, built-in heating and cooling systems, and ergonomic controls.
