A Boom Booster lift enhancement system has been developed by Terex for its 650 tonne capacity class Superlift 3800 lattice boom crawler crane. It follows on from the original Boom Booster for the much larger CC 8800-1 model. It is a kit to make a wider boom that increases lift capacity and height, making the crane more cost-effective.The system increases the main boom´s stiffness, raising the crane´s lifting capacity by as much as 30 per cent. The maximum hook height of the machine is 174 m and its capacity is 80 tonne. The increase puts the 3,800 in the 750 tonne class. It allows erection of wind turbines to 140 m tall or more.Kits for the Superlift 3800 are available with new cranes or for retrofit to existing units. They are either 24 m or 84 m long, assembled from up to seven new larger lattice boom sections in 12 m lengths.
