Texas-based Scott Macon Equipment tried out the new Crossover 6000 Boom Truck Crane.
The Crossover 6000 was introduced in CONEXPO 2011 and later featured in ICUEE 2011. The 60 tonnes crane is designed with a roadable configuration and equipped with the same X-pattern outriggers as Terex’s new Roadmaster 9000 truck crane. The outrigger design lowers the overall centre of gravity and reduce stresses off the chassis, reducing wear and tear while increasing it’s lifespan.
The crane is equipped with a 4-section 33.5 metres main boom and offers optional fixed jib up to 17.2 metres. It can achieve a maximum lifting height of 50.9 metres. Besides, Crossover 6000 also borrows several features from Terex’s T560 truck crane, including its upper which was mounted on a commercial chassis and hydraulically self-removable counterweight system.
Texas-based Scott Macon Equipment took delivery of the first unit of Crossover 6000 which was delivered to Houston in 2011.
