Terex Explorer 5500 crane wins silver medal

Terex's Explorer 5500 all-terrain crane has earned a Silver Award in Lift and Access Magazine's Leadership in Lifting Equipment and Aerial Platforms (LLEAP) contest.

The Explorer 5500 is a five-axle crane that has been on the market since last November. It has a 197-foot main boom with three extensions and a total length of 284 feet, making it the most compact crane in its class. It runs on a 500-horsepower Terex single motor that meets emissions standards Euromot 4 and Tier 4F. The Explorer 5500 can also be equipped with a new system that figures in real time the capacity of the boom in relation to the slewing angle.

“It’s a great honor to receive a LLEAP award for innovation,” Rüdiger Zollondz, director of product marketing, said. “We are committed to developing the best equipment in the industry as judged by our customers, which means focusing on cost of ownership and return on investment. This prestigious award recognizes the talent and commitment of the hardworking individuals involved in every aspect of development, from concept through sales, that made the Terex Explorer 5500 all-terrain crane a reality.”

The awards were judged by experts from across the lifting equipment and access industries. Entries were judged on their economic value to the user, ease of operation, efficiency, productivity and improved safety.

The full list of LLEAP Award winners will appear in the November-December issue of Lift and Access Magazine.
