Rental specialist Owen Pugh & Company has taken delivery of the first Terex 380.3 A3 loader crane in the UK.

The 38 tonne-metre crane is being used to deliver construction supplies, general plant and welfare units to sites across the north east of England. It is also available for general rental.

At its maximum reach of 9.96 m it lifts 3 tonnes and about 7.9 tonnes at 4.56 m. A variable flow hydraulic pump has a working pressure of 320 bar and maximum oil flow is 120 litres a minute.

New hydraulic cylinders and load hold valves are designed to give the operator better response, especially when using remote controls, said Owen & Pugh. In addition, the set-up functions for stabiliser controls are simpler to operate, improving speed and simplifying day-to-day operations, added the company.

"The crane delivers the lifting power and flexibility we need, represents good value for money and benefits from the support of the Terex after-sales network. Based on our personal experience of other Terex products and, despite it being a brand new crane, we had no hesitation in choosing the 380.3," said Stewart Grainger, Owen Pugh general manager.
