10% in­crease in jib length of Terex CTL 272-18 tower crane

PMV Middle East - - CONTENTS -

Terex Cranes has in­tro­duced the Terex CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower crane, which has a 10% in­crease in jib length over the pre­vi­ous class model. The new Terex model fea­tures a 61 m max­i­mum jib length, 270 ton-me­ter load mo­ment and max­i­mum full-length load of 2.6 tonnes. The crane’s Terex Power Plus fea­ture can tem­po­rar­ily in­crease the max­i­mum load mo­ment un­der spe­cific and con­trolled con­di­tions (e.g. re­duced dy­nam­ics) by 10%, giv­ing the op­er­a­tor ex­tra lift­ing ca­pac­ity.

Seven dif­fer­ent jib con­fig­u­ra­tions from 30 to 61 m on this new Terex crane give con­trac­tors the flex­i­bil­ity to meet a range of job­site reach needs. Equipped with an in­de­pen­dent safety line, all jib sec­tions of the new CTL 272-18 crane de­liver safe work at height, plus gal­va­nized jib walk­ways pro­vide long-last­ing and de­pend­able ser­vice life. The crane’s 5.8 m counter jib boasts mul­ti­ple job an­gles to meet de­mand­ing in-ser­vice and out-of-ser­vice con­di­tions.

The new con­trol sys­tem found on the CTL 272-18 crane de­liv­ers ex­panded crane con­fig­u­ra­tions needed to meet a va­ri­ety of job­site de­mands. An 18 cm colour dis­play with antiglare screen dis­plays op­er­at­ing and trou­bleshoot­ing data to the op­er­a­tor. In ad­di­tion to Terex Power Plus, Terex Power Match en­ables the op­er­a­tor to choose be­tween op­er­at­ing per­for­mance or en­ergy ef­fi­ciency to adapt to lift­ing needs. The new crane of­fers the choice of hoist­ing with 1-4 pull lines, af­ford­ing the flex­i­bil­ity to choose be­tween lift­ing speed with lighter loads or power and pre­ci­sion when plac­ing heav­ier ob­jects. Its auto-lev­el­ling fea­ture au­to­mat­i­cally main­tains the same hoist block height while luffing the jib.

The CTL 272-18 of­fers an 84.4 m max­i­mum free­stand­ing height. The flex­i­ble tower de­sign can be con­fig­ured us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of the 1.9 m H20, 2.3 m HD23 and 2.37 m TS212 tower masts, al­low­ing cus­tomers to man­age tower sec­tion in­ven­tory and meet tower needs at mul­ti­ple sites. Tower masts are equipped with durable alu­minium lad­ders and op­ti­mized for trans­porta­tion to the job site.

Stem­ming from in-depth op­er­a­tor feed­back, the new Terex cabin on the CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower crane in­cludes a com­fort­able work space for the op­er­a­tor, in­clud­ing a fully ad­justable com­fort seat. The cabin’s joy­stick con­trols fea­ture a short stroke length to re­duce arm move­ments and op­er­a­tor fa­tigue. Stan­dard heat­ing and air con­di­tion­ing keep the cabin at con­ve­nient tem­per­a­ture, re­gard­less if op­er­at­ing dur­ing cold win­ter months or the heat of sum­mer. Large win­dows give the op­er­a­tor a panoramic view of the job­site for ex­cel­lent vis­i­bil­ity. In the event of a bro­ken glass pane dur­ing oper­a­tion, it can be re­placed from the in­side.

The crane’s counter jib with winches and elec­tri­cal panel pow­er­ing all crane move­ments are lo­cated at cabin level for con­ve­nient ac­cess. A ser­vice der­rick lo­cated at the counter jib with 1.25 tonne lift­ing ca­pac­ity con­ve­niently hoists parts to jib-level for main­te­nance ac­tiv­i­ties.

The new CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower crane can be equipped with sev­eral ad­vanced op­tions to give more flex­i­bil­ity to the owner for crane configuration. It is readye­quipped for the in­stal­la­tion and set-up of zon­ing and anti-col­li­sion sys­tem and cam­eras. The crane is com­pat­i­ble for the next gen­er­a­tion of Terex tower telem­at­ics, which re­ports ma­chine oper­a­tion and ser­vice data back to the of­fice.

The new model has a 61 m max­i­mum jib length, 270 ton-me­ter load mo­ment and max­i­mum full-length load of 2.6 tonnes.
