Davis Motor Crane bought five Terex T 340-1 truck cranes at ConExpo 2014.

Raymond and Robert Davis started Davis Motor Crane Service in Irving, Texas, more than 50 years ago with only two cranes. At the Terex outdoor gold lot booth during ConExpo 2014 in Las Vegas, Raymond placed an order for two-and-a-half times the company’s original fleet size, purchasing five new Terex T 340-1 hydraulic truck cranes.

The Terex T 340-1 crane offers a combination of compact size and high lift capacities. With its 35.5-foot length narrow 8-foot driving width, the T 340-1 truck crane can navigate the congested Dallas-Fort Worth market streets and northern Texas region and is capable of reaching up to 60 mph (96 km/h) highway speeds. The crane’s 34-foot turning radius allows the operator to maneuver into tight spaces at confined job sites.

The five T 340-1 truck crane deal inked at ConExpo represents the largest single Terex crane order of one model throughout the 40-year relationship between Terex, Davis Crane and Scott-Macon Equipment, an authorized Terex Crane distributor. “Davis Crane has been a very loyal Terex customer over the years,” says Jim Strobush, regional business manager for Terex Cranes. “We recently delivered the first crane for this order, and we are on schedule to deliver the rest per the customer’s schedule.”
