Guay Commissions New Terex® Crossover 8000 Boom Truck Crane
Guay Inc. continues to grow its massive fleet of cranes with the addition of a new Terex® Crossover 8000 boom truck crane mounted on a Peterbilt chassis. The Crossover 8000 gives Guay a cost-effective lifting solution for the company’s growing residential and commercial business sector. The crane has a 72.6 t rated capacity, a 38.4 m maximum boom length and a tip height with jib of 57.9 m. Guay selected the Terex Crossover 8000 because of its versatility and ability to travel over-the-road while carrying all its counterweight and support equipment.
“The Terex Crossover 8000 is a great addition to our fleet,” says Jean-Louis Lapointe, director of Equipment for Guay Inc. “With a few modifications to the chassis, we’re able to meet DOT regulations, while carrying counterweight, rigging equipment, pads and tools. We’ve been able to significantly reduce setup time and transportation costs since we do not have to use an additional truck to move extra components.”
The truck chassis incorporates a modified axle configuration, tool boxes and hook block support mounted between the crane frame and a rack on the rear of the machine for pads.
Guay is already keeping its new boom truck crane busy in the Montreal, Quebec, area. By choosing a crane that fits a standard truck frame, Guay’s crews can travel from jobsite to jobsite at the speed limit with air-ride comfort.
