Big in the USA
12 May 2008
Organisers forecast a busy show this year as registration numbers are up by nearly 50% on 2005 figures, during the lead up to the event. ConExpo-Con/AGG will be North America’s largest show in 2008 of any industry, according to the organiser, with 2.293 million square feet (213,000 square metres) of indoor and outdoor exhibition space, some 22% ahead of the 2005 show total. It is estimated that 17 billion pounds (7.7 million tonnes) of equipment and exhibition materials will be on site during the exhibition’s five day run.
Advance registration was extended to 29 February 2008 and fees remain at the advance rate for admission to the exhibits as well as to the education sessions. In addition, registration via the show web site will be open from 1 March and throughout the event.
Visitors might also be interested in the Industry Investor Conference held during the show. Financial analysts for the construction equipment industry will be participating in the conference, conducted by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). The aim is to spotlight the capabilities of its member companies and the industry’s scope to analysts who recommend, buy or upgrade public offerings. It will be held on 12 March from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in room S-222.

The manufacturer will be showing a range of products including the Demag AC 100/4 all terrain. According to the manufacturer it is the strongest 100 tonne capacity four-axle crane on the market. It has a maximum load moment of 308 tonne-metres, a 50 m telescopic boom, plus 27 m of main boom extension (HAV), which, Terex says, is the most variable in its class.
The 19 m HAV can be offset at the basic boom as well as at the eight metre extension, making it possible to achieve large radii or to lift loads over projected edges. With a dolly, the crane is roadable in most parts of the US, as the distance between axle two and three is eight feet (2.4 m).
Also on show will be the new HC 230 crawler crane, which offers a 230 tonne capacity at a 14 foot (14.3 m) reach when equipped with a 77 SI boom and hammerhead tip. The maximum capacity can also be reached with a 92 HI boom, offset tip, at 16 foot (4.9 m). Maximum main boom length is 290 feet (88.4 m) or 390 feet (118.9 m) with a boom extension.
The RT 1120 rough terrain is one of the most powerful rough-terrains in the US market, with a 120 US Ton (107 tonne) lifting capacity, says the company. The five-section, three-mode boom has a basic hook height of 155 feet (47 m). A 30 to 56 foot (9 to 17 m) bi-fold jib is available, as well as two additional 26 foot (7.9 m) jib inserts, providing a 271 foot (82.6 m) hook height.
The Stinger-class BT 4792 boom truck will also be in the iron. The model has a 47,000 pounds (21 tonnes) lifting capacity and 60,000 pounds (27 tonnes) total weight. Maximum boom height is 101 feet (30.8 m) or 144 feet (43.9 m) with main boom extension. Working platforms and cages can be attached.
Terex Comedil recently launched a new range of flat top tower cranes, the medium CTT series. The range sits between the manufacturer’s City and big series’. On show will be the CTT 231, which is the first in the range, and soon to be followed by two others. Lifting capacity is 2.1 tonnes at 70 m maximum jib length. Maximum capacity is 10 to 12 tonnes.
