Three press components each weighing at least 200t have been lifted out of a factory in Germany using a 650t Terex Superlift 3800 lattice boom crawler crane.
Crane company Viktor Baumann employed the crane to lift two 270t components and one 200t components from an SGL Carbon facility in Bonn, at a working radius of 26m.
The Terex crane was assembled by a team of five at the SGL premises, using a 220t assist crane. It was set up with an SSL configuration, a heavy 48m main boom, and a 36m SL mast. 165t of counterweight was used on the crane’s superstructure, with 320t on the SL counterweight tray.
