New York, USA-based recovery company Michael Bigg has taken delivery of a Terex T780 truck crane from Empire Crane. The model was sold by Chet Zerillo at Empire Crane - his third to the company - before his passing.

The T780 has 80 US ton (72.6 tonnes) capacity, 126 foot (38.4 m) maximum boom length, 133 ft (40.5 m) maximum tip height and travels at speeds up to 65 miles per hour (mph). It is designed to set up easily on the job site and can travel down the highway at maximum allowable speeds, the company said.

Luke Lonergan at Empire Crane said, “The 2016 Terex T780 will prove to be a reliable crane for the 24 hour demand of their business.”
