While quoting activity for mobile cranes has been stable, the Cranes segment backlog has been negatively impacted by certain European macro-economic factors including capital markets tightening and declining government spending, affecting crawler and all-terrain cranes specifically. This was partially offset by continued strength in orders from North and South America, Australia and the Middle East.MHPS backlog decreased due to lower Material Handling orders. This was largely offset by strength in Terex Port Solutions. Components of the large order related to the European port projects announced in the second quarter of 2012, which will be delivered next year starting in the second half of 2013, have started to be included in the Company’s reported backlog.
