UK-based King Lifting has ordered five all terrain cranes from Terex.

They include three 60 tonne capacity Terex AC60-3L all terrain cranes and two 40 tonne capacity Terex AC40-2L all terrains. All five machines are due for delivery during the second quarter of 2011.

The AC 60-3L is equipped with a 44 m telescopic main boom for a maximum on-board system length of 59.35 m. The two-axle, AC40-2L features a 37.4 m main boom.

"This new investment supports King Lifting's commitment to our customers through the constant modernisation of our crane fleet during these challenging times. While increasing our expansion into the mobile crane market, this new order further emphasizes our dedication to the UK Crane Hire industry," said Tristan King, King Lifting commercial director. "Outstanding customer service and a high-quality, flexible fleet are essential to our continued growth and success in the market."

This order follows the addition of a new 350 tonne capacity class Terex AC350/6 all terrain and two other Terex AC40/2L all terrains to the King Lifting fleet, delivered in the second half of 2010.
