Guay commissions new Terex Crossover 8000 boom truck crane
Guay Inc., headquartered in Quebec, continues to grow its fleet of cranes with the addition of a new Terex Crossover 8000 boom truck crane mounted on a Peterbilt truck chassis. The Crossover 8000 gives Guay a cost-effective lifting solution for the company’s growing residential and commercial business sector. The crane has an 80-ton rated capacity, a 126-foot maximum boom length and a tip height with jib of 190 feet. Guay selected the Terex Crossover 8000 because of the unit’s 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 area. By choosing a crane that fits a standard truck frame, Guay’s crews can travel from jobsite to jobsite at 65 mph with air-ride comfort.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
