W.O. Grubb is testing its new 375 ton capacity Terex Demag CC 2200 lattice boom crawler crane that it purchased from Terex dealer Stafford Equipment. The machine docked into port in late January and arrived a few days later at Grubb's Richmond, VA yard.
The crane was scheduled for assembly and testing at Grubb's yard before being dispatched to the Washington, D.C. area to work at a project on the banks of the Potomac. It has 84 meters (275.5 feet) of main boom and 84 meters (275.5 feet) of luffing jib. The crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 350 tons at a 5 meter radius in the SH conficuration.
An official at Stafford said the new CC 2200 is one of just two or three in the US. Demag technicians were on hand to assemble the crane, which required some 20 truckloads for delivery.
