New launches from Terex-Atlas

24 April 2008

Terex-Atlas in Germany has added six new hydraulic loader cranes to its product range. The B3-duty-rated AK26.2 and AK36.2 models with 8 and 11 foot reach, respectively, preceded the April launch of the AK42.2 and AK210.2 with 13 and 68 feet reach, respectively. These two are also rated B3.

Also launched last month was the 68 foot reach AK102.2, which is built to B4 duty rating.

The sixth new model is the 118.2 VGL, aimed at grab applications. The new 26 foot reach model has a new arm system designed to be well suited for fast loading of bulky raw materials.

Single or double stand-up controls with access ladders are available and the crane slews through 425 degrees. Hoses and pipes are routed internally and the main lift ram has dampening protection to protect against operator damage.
