Bruns' new Terex Challenger 3160

Bruns in Germany has acquired a Terex Challenger 3160 all terrain crane.

Frank Bruns, general manager of the Hannover-based rental company, and crane operator Heiko Schneider, took delivery of the 160 tonne-metre rated machine at the Terex Zweibrücken plant, also in Germany.

Benefits of the compact unit were felt straight away, said Terex. "Schneider was able to take the Challenger to Bruns' Hannover location alone and without an escort vehicle, even though the unit was set up with a complete configuration that would enable it to start working anywhere right away," said a company spokesman.

The Challenger 3160 is designed to be flexible. "It spares us from having to waste time applying for one-time permits and gives us an unparalleled level of scheduling flexibility thanks to the fact that we can get a long-term permit for it. This, in turn, provides us with decisive competitive advantages, especially since we're the first crane service provider in our region to have such a machine," explained Bruns.
