On Friday October 5th Elmer W. Davis, Inc. picked up their new 2018 Terex BT28106 boom truck from Empire Crane Company, LLC in Syracuse, NY. The BT28106 will be the 9th Terex (4th BT28106) in their continually growing crane fleet. Elmer W. Davis, Inc. is the largest roofing contractor in NY and have become particularly fond of Terex Boom Truck Cranes. Superintendent Damon Runyon expressed the “ease of service” with his Terex machines, “they are reliable cranes with almost no downtime”.

With a 28USt capacity, 106’ boom and 30’-47’ jib, they have found the Terex BT28106 to be the crane for them. It offers a modular, dual-control console for operation from either side of the crane, work area definition, and high-performance hydraulics. Carl Benson, Fleet Manager said “the boom length, and jib length, fits our roofing needs’ ‘the rapid mobility of a boom truck makes things a lot easier and we don’t have to worry about transportation or set-up and take-down time.”

The crane’s first job will be a roofing at the Wegmans Supermarket in Fairmount NY.
