Ashland, Virginia, USA-based heavy lifting solutions provider Atlantic Coast Cranes held an Open House to showcase the new Terex rough terrain Crane — the TRT40US — to industry professionals.

According to manufacturer Terex, the TRT 40US meets market demands for a flexible, durable off-road crane that caters for several applications, including ports, construction, infrastructure, mining, energy, yard logistics and general lifting.

With a maximum capacity of 40 US t and a 99 ft hydraulic four section boom, the TRT 40US also has the TEOS Terex Operating System on a 10-inch touch screen display that has a user-friendly interface to increase customer’s operating efficiency.

Manoeuvrability is a key feature thanks to a width of 8.3ft and four steering options. The TRT 40US is equipped with a Cummins QSB4.5 Tier 4 Final/Stage V 4-cylinder engine, bringing high power and optimised consumption, aided by the Eco Mode function.

Terex T-Link telematics come as standard on the TRT 40US, providing customers with real time information on the performance of their crane and allowing for geo-localization and remote diagnostics.

The Open House event included presentations, live demonstrations, and opportunity for hands-on experience with the TRT40US crane. Attendees interacted with Atlantic Coast Crane's team of experts, who were on hand to answer questions and provide insights into the capabilities of the crane.

"We were thrilled to invite our valued customers and industry professionals to our Open House event," said Waldo C. Jones, Jr., President/Owner at Atlantic Coast Cranes. "Crane operators liked the user friendly TEOS system and the telematics, as well as the ability to input three different operator settings to individualize the controls and comfort. Feedback from customers was that they liked the compact footprint that enables it to get into very tight places the other machines can’t get to.”

Josh Lawrence, Regional Sales Manager – Terex Rough Terrain Cranes continues, “The Open House at Atlantic Coast Cranes was an excellent opportunity to share the capabilities of the TRT40US to the US market and connect with the industry, showcase our expertise, and demonstrate our commitment to innovation. Responses from participants—mainly crane operators— said that the TRT 40US is a good quality machine with excellent options and diagnostics available. The comfort of the cab generated a lot of positive feedback, as well as how easily accessible the components are to get to. Attendees also liked the four different steering options.”
