Terex said the models are well suited to high rise building construction projects on urban jobsites, particularly with precast elements and modern construction methods.

The cranes boast a maximum capacity of 66 tonnes and jib lengths of 75 metres, and are equipped with T-Torque slewing technology, Terex Power Plus and Terex Power Match.

Clare Rodgers at Select Tower Cranes said, “We are really excited to have placed orders to add to our CTL1600 fleet, as these machines are ideal for the UK market—in fact they are in high demand from clients in several sectors.

“Looking ahead, we see a big demand coming for these cranes among the energy and data sectors, as our UK market research has indicated that work in these areas will continue to grow.”

Lee Maynard, global sales director at Terex Tower Cranes added, “It’s becoming increasingly evident that the demand for large luffers is growing both in the UK and infact globally.

“We are seeing increasing numbers of projects in Europe, Middle East, and Australia all demanding large luffers. We only see further growth in this sector.”
