Canadian Professional Crane, Inc., (CP Crane) of Waterdown, Ontario, Canada, recently purchased a new 80-ton Terex Crossover 8000 boom truck, the first one sold 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.
CP Crane’s Crossover 8000 superstructure is mounted on a 2014 Freightliner 114SD chassis, configured with a 126-foot fully powered, four-section boom with a quick-reeve boom head and a 33-57-foot offset jib. The X-pattern outrigger design eliminates the need for the front stabilizer jack. This decreases overall crane length and weight. The Crossover 8000 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.
