C_621e83a6d8Canadian Professional Crane Inc.(CP Crane), of Waterdown, Ontario, recently purchased an 80-ton Terex Crossover 8000 boom truck, the first one in Canada. According to Aram Malek of CP Crane, the company needed a crane that could handle up to 80 tons but would also keep a small footprint and only require one operator. The Crossover 8000 boom truck met all of CP Crane’s needs.

The company purchased the new Crossover 8000 boom truck from Cropac Equipment Inc. “Cropac is a company with a reputation for carrying only quality equipment, and our work demands zero downtime and efficiency,” Malek said. “CP Cranes has always stood by Cropac and we know Terex has a reliable and durable product, which is a key to running a successful crane rental operation. In our fast-paced industry, no one can afford any downtime.”

CP Crane’s Crossover 8000 superstructure is mounted on a 2014 Freightliner 114SD chassis, configured with a 126-ft. fully powered, four-section boom with a quick reeve boom head and a 33 to 57-ft. offset jib. The X-pattern outrigger design on the Crossover 8000 crane eliminates the need for the front stabilizer jack. This decreases overall crane length and weight. The Terex Crossover 8000 crane is also equipped with a quick-reeving hook block featuring five sheaves to offer its maximum capacity, giving it the flexibility to handle some complex lifts. With these features, the Crossover 8000 provides CP Crane with the strongest lift capacity of any boom truck available in North America.

“Thanks to the crane’s capacity and boom length,” says Mr. Malek, “CP Crane is able to take on more jobs with the new Crossover 8000. The additional capacity and the compact footprint allows us to lift massive loads in tight areas, giving us an edge over our competitors. And, having one operator on the job saves us a considerable amount of expense we would otherwise have to incur when using a crane that can handle this amount of weight.“

Other factors that weighed into CP Crane’s purchase was that the Crossover 8000 crane has minimal weight per axle and travel speeds of up to 70 mph (113 kmh), enabling the company’s crews to drive the crane directly to most work sites. CP Crane’s Crossover 8000 also carries full counterweights on board, so there is no need for a separate shipment or the headache of adding and removing the weights for transport. And, because the Crossover 8000 boom truck does not require a front stabilizer jack, CP Crane’s setup time will be reduced.

Cropac has taken Delivery of the first Terex CrossOver 8000 in Canada

Cropac Equipment Inc. have a long standing relationship with Terex, which is why we were given the honour of receiving the first Terex CrossOver 8000 in Canada.

2014 Terex Crossover 8000 03

New from Terex Cranes, the Terex ® Crossover 8000 is an 80
USt (72,5 t) capacity class boom truck that blends truck crane and boom crane designs to offer a 360-degree load radius that outlifts any other boom truck in North America. Featuring the same upper structure as the field-proven Terex® T780 telescopic truck crane, the Crossover 8000 boom truck offers almost identical load ratings throughout most lift situations, regardless if lifting from the front, rear or sides of the crane.

The Crossover 8000 crane boasts the same unique X-pattern outrigger design pioneered in the
boom truck market by the successful Terex Crossover 6000 model. This outrigger design allows for enhanced all-around lift capabilities. This feature lowers the overall center of gravity and isolates the crane’s upper structure from the truck chassis, reducing chassis torsion and extending its lifetime.

The X-pattern outrigger positioning also eliminates the need for the front stabilizer jack, typically required for boom cranes to counteract the weight of the engine when lifting. This decreases overall crane length and weight. The crane’s three-position outrigger – minimum 6.5-ft (2.0 m), middle 19-ft,9.3 in (5.9m), and maximum 26-ft (7.9m) position span – allows the Crossover 8000 to be used in confined spaces and further enhances crane maneuverability.

2014 Terex Crossover 8000 18The upper lift structure has been approved for the Freightliner chassis; other options are under investigation to offer flexibility in crane configuration. With speeds in excess of 70 mph (113 kmh), the Crossover 8000 quickly moves from job to job at highway speeds. Once on site, the crane is designed to deliver quick leveling and set up with its independently controlled outriggers and jib that quickly swings and pins into position.

Designed for optimum performance over a broad range of applications, the Crossover 8000’s
crane’s four-section main boom offers a 126 ft (38 m) length with a 189 ft (57.6 m) maximum tip height. Two available jib 2014 Terex Crossover 8000 16designs – fixed length 33 ft (10 m) and extendable to 57 ft (17 m) – offer 0, 15 and 30 degree offset positions, providing easier reach when lifting over objects. With a rated 80 US t (72.5 t) lift capacity at a 10 ft (3 m) radius, the crane provides the strongest lift capacity of any boom truck available in North America.

The Terex Crossover 8000 is the first boom truck to feature the latest Terex Cranes operator’s cab, designed to boost productivity and comfort. Built around operator feedback, this 2014 Terex Crossover 8000 09functional cab repositions the electronics compartment to offer longer inside dimensions and provide more space for operators. Moreover, an infinitely variable tilt-up operator cab of up to 18° delivers improved vision of the work area. A redesigned air conditioning and heating system with individual air outlets maintain comfortable operating temperatures. An ergonomic, multi-adjustable seat with lumbar support, air-ride suspension, high back and arm rests helps to improve operator comfort and productivity.
