Terex has introduced its 130t Explorer 5500 all terrain crane, designed to be the company’s most compact crane in its capacity class.
Part of the Explorer range which also includes the 5600 and 5800 models, the new 5500 features a 60m main boom with three extensions of 11m, 22m and 33m, with a maximum system length of 86.5m.
With a maximum load moment of 395mt, the five-axle crane is designed to be compact enough for use in cities and on other narrow construction sites. Manoeuvrability is improved by steerable axles, says Terex.
Features including variable axle loads and axle pair intervals, as well as dismountable main boom, enables the crane to be fulfil road service approval regulations in key markets.
All the components for the Explorer 5500 can be transported on one standard support vehicle, and the crane also incorporates Terex’s single-motor concept as used on the 5600 and 5800 models. This automatically adjusts the power usage according to whether the crane is driving or operating, reducing energy consumption.
