Kelley Equipment Company expanded its crane fleet with the addition of a compact, eight-axle Terex AC 500-2 all terrain crane. The new crane enables Kelley Equipment to handle a larger class of projects, which require lifting heavier loads at greater heights.
The company chose the Terex AC 500-2 crane because of the unit’s ease of operation and ability to reach exceptional heights and radii according to Russell Johnson, vice president and general manager, Kelley Equipment Company.
With a carrier length of 56-feet (17.1 m), the Terex AC 500-2 unit is one of the most compact eight-axle cranes in its class. It has a working height of 478 feet (145.8 m) through the use of the unit’s luffing fly jib.
“The Terex AC 500-2 has a proven design that is versatile enough to use across the many markets our organization services,” said Johnson. “We also know that Terex stands behind its equipment with a knowledgeable product support team.”
The new Terex AC 500-2 crane will get to work right away, providing service on an industrial expansion project in Louisiana.
