By Alex Dahm31 March 2009
Terex has moved its hydraulic knuckle boom loader crane product line from the Terex Construction division into the Terex Cranes division.
"With a transition from our construction segment to our cranes segment, we are well positioned for our experts to work together to respond to customer and market needs. Terex Cranes is truly a one-stop shop for a wide range of lifting equipment and this is a benefit to all customers," said Jim Robbins, Terex vice president and general manager of operations.
Terex Corporation added hydraulic loader cranes to its portfolio in late 2001 with its purchase of Atlas Weyhausen in Germany. Atlas, with factories in Germany and Scotland, was a pioneer in knuckle boom cranes and had been a world leader.
The Terex knuckle boom range of 55 models extends from 1.3 to 60.0 tonne-metres maximum load moment. There are 230 boom options and up to eight hydraulic extensions give a maximum 21 m reach.
