New TEREX Boom Booster increases crane lift capacities and offers low transport costs

The new Terex Boom Booster kit for the Terex CC 8800-1 crawler crane boosts performance to new heights particularly when working with steep and long boom configurations. The kit is a must-have for heavy lifting applications with long-boom configurations such as petrochemical, wind turbine erection and power plant installation. The new Boom Booster increases the CC 8800-1 crane’s lift capacity by up to 90%, enabling it to outlift any crane within the 1,000 to 2000 tonne (1,100- to 2,200 ton) capacity range and 3,000 tonne (3,300 ton) capacity range cranes under certain conditions. The Terex Boom Booster is available with new crane purchases or is easily retrofitted to existing models.

The available Boom Booster kit offers up to 72 m (236 ft) of lift-enhancing boom structure for the CC 8800-1 crawler crane. The wedge-shaped, 11 m long (36 ft) lower and upper adapters flare out to a 10-m (32.8-ft) width, nearly three times the standard 3.5-m (11.5 ft) boom width, to enhance the system’s structural integrity. Five 10 m long (32.8-ft) intermediate segments offer the ability to meet up to 50-m (164-ft) length needs.
