Terex-Demag developing new 1,000 tonne mobile telescopic

25 April 2008

Under development at Terex-Demag in Germany is a 1,000 tonne capacity wheeled mobile telescopic crane.

With a maximum load moment of around 3,000 tonne-metres, the nine axle AC 1000/9 will be the world's strongest boom-on wheeled telescopic crane, said Klaus Meissner, Terex- Demag research and development director.

The new crane will travel with its 50 m boom and front outrigger on 16.00 R25 tyres at 12 tonnes per axle. Minimum and maximum outrigger base spreads will be 10 x 10 m and 13.5 x 13.5 m. The maximum luffing fly jib will be 126 m.

The AC 1000/9 will be available in 2008 and a boom-off version is under consideration, Meissner said. Terex-Demag announced the new crane during a customer event at its Zweibrücken factory in Germany on 28 July.
