Malina Crane Hire from Ostrava, in the Czech Republic has taken delivery of the first Terex Explorer 5800 all terrain crane in the country. The firms owner and president, Radek Malina, visited the Terex Zweibrücken facility to pick up the crane and drive it 1,020 km himself to Ostrava.
The Explorer 5800 crane uses a one-engine concept. Commenting on this, Malina said: “It’s the future, and at Malina we invest for the future. With how far engine technology has come, the advantages of having one engine are evident, and it’s a matter of time until it gets widely implemented throughout the industry. I am happy to be one of the early adopters, as this perfectly embodies Malina Crane’s forward thinking mentality.”
The Explorer has a five-axle, all wheel steer carrier that is 13.2m long and 3m wide with a 70m five-section boom. The crane was sold via ISOS Trade, Terex Cranes’ distributor in the Czech Republic.
