May 10, 2023 - Terex Rough Terrain Cranes has rolled out the fourth and newest model in its growing family of rough-terrain cranes, the 65-metric-ton TRT 65, whose U.S. version is the 70-USt TRT 70US.
Terex says the versatile new model meets customer demands for a flexible, durable off-road crane to work in applications like ports, construction, infrastructure, mining, energy, yard logistics, and general lifting.
Stefania D’Apoli, Terex’s senior manager of sales support for RT cranes, said, “It was fantastic to showcase our new TRT 65 at SaMoTer. The show is highlighting how sophisticated technologies connect operators with machines, and our TRT is an ideal example, since it features the new generation of the Terex Operating System (TEOS).”
D’Apoli added that TEOS technology improves usability and information flow using a new 10’’ full-color touchscreen display with an intuitive interface to maximize efficient and safe operation and maintenance.
The system’s new features include the option of having a camera embedded in the touchscreen screen, enabling the operator to watch directly from the TEOS display.
The TRT 65 / TRT 70US delivers 65t/70-USt maximum lifting capacity and a maximum main-boom length of 43.5m/142.7’.
The five-section boom features synchronized extension to give the operator the best lifting performance at any length.
Another important feature is the crane’s 3m/9’10” overall width, which allows easy transportation.
On job sites, that narrow width and four steering options deliver excellent maneuverability, even in the tightest spots.
The permanent four-wheel-drive Powershift transmission offers can be driven either in manual mode (three speeds forward and three reverse) or in automatic mode (six speeds forward and three reverse).
The extra-wide, tiltable cab with large windows gives the operator excellent visibility and comfort.
A Cummins 6-cylinder diesel engine combines high power with low fuel consumption, thanks to Eco Mode and anti-stall control. Versions of the engine are available to meet regional regulations: Cummins QSB6.7 Stage IIIA - Tier 3 or Cummins QSB6.7 Stage 5/Tier 4F.
Terex T-Link telematics, which gives customers real-time performance information comes standard, as do LED lights.
Other options include a 8-15m / 26’3”-49’2” lattice jib, a radio remote control, an auxiliary winch (with same performance of the standard winch), outrigger control from the carrier, and a wind-speed indicator.
The TRT 65 is available to order now, and the U.S. version TRT 70US will be available in the coming weeks.
