DEMAG CRANE MODELS FEATURING MTU ENGINES FROM ROLLS-ROYCE

KW |

Rolls-Royce is to supply MTU engines to equipment manufacturer Terex Cranes for two new Demag models. The Demag AC 300-6 will be powered by a Series 6R 1500/OM 473 engine, and the AC 45 City crane by 6R 1000/OM 936 engines.

MTU leads the pack when it comes to drive systems for large mobile cranes. As well as Terex Cranes, numerous other big-name construction equipment manufacturers source many hundreds of Series 1000 to 1500 engines per year. Also the two new Terex Cranes models run with MTU engines.

Dr. Aaron Haußmann, Head of Construction and Agriculture Sales at MTU, said: “MTU leads the pack when it comes to drive systems for large mobile cranes. As well as Terex Cranes, numerous other big-name construction equipment manufacturers such as Tadano and Manitowoc also source many hundreds of Series 1000 to 1500 engines per year from us.”

The two new Terex Cranes models are all-terrain cranes, able to move on or off-road, making them ideal for building telecomm towers and overhead cable masts, power stations and container terminals as well as for use in rescue and recovery operations, and for revision and testing activities.

The MTU Series 1000 to 1500 engines have been developed specially for industrial applications in the agriculture and construction sectors and are based on Daimler commercial vehicle engines.
