Cropac’s major Terex order

27 March 2020


Cropac Equipment has placed an order for 16 new Terex tower cranes.

The company has locations throughout Atlantic and Eastern Canada.

The order comprises units of the SK 415-20 hammerhead, CTT 472-20 flat top and CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower cranes.

The SK 415-20 has a maximum capacity of 20t (22USt), maximum jib length of 80m (262.4ft) and capacity at maximum length of 2.3t.

The 20t CTT 472-20 has eleven jib configurations (from 30– 80m) and can lift up to 4.48t at max jib length.  The control system ensures an easy and quick setup, and includes Terex’s ‘Power Plus’ feature. A new feature is T-Torque slewing, which is a new inverter technology with torque control applied directly to the slewing motors, giving the operator improved control over crane movements.

The CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower cranes, have a maximum capacity of 18t and a jib tip capacity of 2.9t at 61m with single line pull. “Multiple tower masts options, to leverage existing stock, easy setup, Power Plus and auto-levelling are all part of the CTL 272 product offer,” said Terex.

James Graham, business development manager at Cropac Equipment said:

“We have seen an increase in demand for luffing jib cranes due to enhanced work area restrictions and having a comprehensive luffing jib offering from Terex ranging from 11-72USt as well as new hydraulic luffer technology first introduced on the CTLH192-12 will allow us to continue to meet our customers’ evolving lifting needs.”

Cropacpresident, Bill Finkle, said: “Our latest orders reflect the strong demand in our territory for Terex tower cranes from both existing as well as new customers, which is a testament to Terex tower cranes performance, reliability and continuous innovation. Cropac Equipment prides itself in its after-sale service support and on ensuring that we always have the right crane for our customers when they need it. The broad tower crane product offering from Terex allow us to do that.”
