Scottish Highlands & Islands crane specialists, Stoddart Crane Hire has commissioned a new Terex® AC 40/2L all terrain crane. The new crane is designed to be a versatile, high lifting machine that is quick to rig. The crane will help Stoddart Crane Hire continue to meet the needs of all of its customers across the North of Scotland.
“We were in need of a new small all terrain crane, and after reviewing all of our options, we determined that the Terex AC 40/2L model was superior to other cranes in its particular size class,” said David Stoddart, owner/managing director for Stoddart Crane Hire. “It is easy to operate, includes a spacious cab and has a very long reach for a crane of its size. Also, Terex Cranes has always done an excellent job of supporting our organization after the sale, which is important to our customers and us.”
With a 40-tonne (45 US ton) lift capacity, the Terex AC 40/2L features the longest main boom in its class at 37.4 meters (122.7 ft) and a system length of 45.4 meters (149 ft). With travel speeds of 80 km/h (50 mph), this crane can travel at highway speeds. Also, its compact design makes it easy to position on the job, so Stoddart Crane Hire’s crew can get to work quickly.
“Stoddart Crane Hire is going from strength to strength and we are delighted they opted for Terex when they required a new crane for their expanding fleet” commented Lyle Sibbald, Regional Sales Manager for Terex Cranes. “I would personally like to thank David, his family and all the team at Stoddart Crane Hire for their continued support.”
Stoddart Crane Hire already has its new Terex all terrain crane scheduled for several jobs over the coming months and the company is looking forward to operating it for a long time to come.
