Terex unveils new CTL 272-18 luffing jib

Terex cranes have introduced its new Terex CTL 272-18 luffing jib tower crane, which boasts a 10 per cent increase in jib length over the previous class model.

The CTL 272-18 features a 200-foot maximum jib length, 270 tonne-metre load moment, and a maximum full-length load of 2.9 tonnes. The crane comes with a unique Terex Power Plus feature, which can temporarily increase the maximum load moment under specific and controlled conditions by 10 per cent, giving the operator extra lifting capacity.

The new crane comes with seven different jib configurations from 98.4 to 200-feet, which gives contractors the flexibility to meet a range of jobsite reach needs. Equipped with an independent safety line, all jib sections of the new CTL 272-18 crane deliver safe work at height, plus galvanised jib walkways provide long-lasting and dependable service life.

The crane’s 19-foot counter jib also boasts multiple job angles to meet demanding in-service and out-of-service conditions.

“We are extremely excited about our new Terex CTL 272-18 tower crane, which is just the latest in a string of recent new model introductions across our hammerhead, flat top and luffing jib offerings,” said Massimo Cappello, director of product management for Terex Tower Cranes.

“We worked closely with customers to include the features they need and the flexibility to meet more congested and complex building environments.

“Its adaptable control system gives operators the choice of operating modes to efficiently and precisely position heavy loads, and the crane is built ready to quickly accept advanced options that boost productivity and reporting capabilities.”

In addition to Terex Power Plus, Terex Power Match enables the operator to choose between operating performance or energy efficiency to adapt to lifting needs.

The new crane offers the choice of hoisting with 1-4 pull lines, affording the flexibility to choose between lifting speed with lighter loads or power and precision when placing heavier objects. Its auto-levelling feature automatically maintains the same hoist block height while luffing the jib.

The new CTL 272-18 can also be equipped with several advanced options to give more flexibility to the owner for crane configuration.

It is ready-equipped for the installation and set-up for the next generation of Terex tower telematics, which reports machine operation and service back to the office.
