The construction industry is always in need of good-quality cranes. The Terex RT780 is the perfect 80-ton crane for this thriving industry because of its power, maneuverability, and ease of use.

The boom of the RT780 has four full-powered sections that extend to a maximum tip height of 126 feet. Boom pads can be changed without requiring disassembly. Grease zerks allow for easy application of boom lubrication. An offsettable lattice swing-away jib offers an increased height of 57 feet for a maximum tip height of 190 feet.

Powering the Terex RT780 is a 260HP Cummins diesel engine. A rangeshift transmission, 4‑wheel drive, and 4‑wheel steer allow the RT780 to move around the jobsite with ease. The four hydraulic single-stage double box beam outriggers have three setting positions to easily adapt to the limitations of the jobsite and the needs of the lift.

  • A maximum tip height of 190 feet
