Terex Mobile Cranes
High-Performance Devices with Tradition

Terex Cranes Germany GmbH is a renowned German crane manufacturer from Zweibrücken that makes mobile cranes with a load capacity of 30-3,200 tonnes. The company developed from the Dingler press shop founded in 1827 and has been producing auto cranes of all weights and sizes since 1954 as part of the DEMAG industrial group.


In 2002, the company was taken over by U.S. construction company Terex and now markets its cranes under the Terex or Terex-Demag name. Primarily three types of crane are still produced – lorry-mounted cranes that can handle loads between 30 and 70 tonnes, military cranes for the terrain and lattice-boom crawler cranes that can carry between 300 and 3,200 tonnes. These models are used to transport heavy loads, in bridge and high-rise construction, excavation and to build wind turbines.

Terex Mobile Cranes are Top of their Class

In 1950, the first telescopic mobile crane was built and was able to haul 2.5 tonnes, an exceptional load for the time. In 1976, the first lattice boom crawler crane came on the market, to followed by many other models. In the Terex era, the MAC 50 has come on the market. This is a 50-tonne crane used by the U.S. Navy.

The range of Terex mobile cranes has a number of advantages. The processing is extremely high, so that the machines are in use for a long time – even in used condition. Easy maintenance access and corrosion-protected electrical connections guarantee minimum downtime. The ergonomic cabins offer crane operators the necessary comfort, even during long periods of use.

Terex Mobile Cranes in Various Applications

Even the data of the current mobile cranes from Terex are impressive. The smallest model, the T 340-1, has a load capacity of 36.3 tonnes, a boom length of 28.7 metres and a maximum tip height of 44.8 meters. The largest model, the Toplift 100, offers a load capacity of 100 tonnes and a tip height of 57 metres.

Terex mobile cranes are as suited to travelling on the motorways as they are across uneven terrain. Transport between locations is quick and efficient and the practical, stable designs allow a fast start with a long service life.
