North Texas based lifting company Davis Motor Crane Service has signed its largest-ever Terex order for a single crane model.
The company has ordered five 40t Terex T 340-1 cranes from Terex distributor Scott-Macon Equipment to help it access confined job sites in northern Texas while achieving high lift capacities. The order represents an upgrade of Davis Crane’s fleet of 35t truck cranes.
The short 10.8m unit’s length and narrow 2.4m driving width allows navigation of the congested Dallas-Forth Worth market streets and northern Texas region, while the 28.7m telescopic boom length and maximum tip height of 44.8m gives capabilities for use on multi-storey building projects in downtown markets.
Keith McKee, general manger of Davis Crane, said the T 340-1 gave the company the ability to provide a 40t class truck crane without going to a boom truck. He said the construction industry still preferred a truck crane over boom trucks.
