Tadano

Tough lifts require tough machinery. This is why Russian crane service provider M-Kran decided to use its brand new Demag CC 8800-1 crawler crane to lift the heavy components for four coke drums. It all happened at the Kstovo oil refinery close to Nizhny Novgorod, 280 mi.

The Tadano brand has long been an integral part of the fleet of western Australian crane hire company Cranecorp. In June 2020, it added another two 5-axle cranes to the company's fleet: a Demag AC 160-5 and a Tadano ATF 220G-5. "We are a growing company and the two cranes are well suited to the business in that they're very flexible.

Quality, performance and cost-effectiveness — those are Norline AG's basic principles and the reason why the company decided on a Demag AC 160-5 when acquiring a new all terrain crane. More specifically, the 223 ft. (68-m) main boom, which is the longest in this crane class, and the large lifting capacity with the base counterweight alone were undeniably compelling arguments for the Swiss company, which specializes in building engineering, steel construction, and ground probe boreholes.

Select Crane Sales delivered a 2020 Tadano ATF130G-5 to a customer in the Northeast who had an immediate need. Select Crane Sales' quick delivery of the 130 ton all terrain resulted in little to no down time for its customer, according to the company.

Neither a global pandemic nor a slowed economy has kept one Southern California contractor off its desired growth curve. Dewolfe Crane Service's work with Orange County Transit and Caltrans has kept it steadily busy thru the first two quarters of 2020 and has even fueled the need to add one crane to its fleet.

When it comes to finding a special type of crane, GAAC Commerz GmbH has never had any issues. After all, the crane services firm based in Mittenwalde on the outskirts of Berlin has been a Tadano customer for many years. So what better time for it to purchase a new Tadano – other than actually needing one, of course – than its company anniversary? This is why March was an occasion to celebrate not only 30 years of GAAC, but also a new ATF 60G-3.

Constrained spaces often make indoor projects a tricky proposition – especially when unwieldy loads need to be lifted. And this was exactly the case for the Merkel Autokrane GmbH job inside a production facility for precast concrete elements run by FTO Fertigteilwerk Obermain.

Tadano's two new all-terrain cranes -- the ATF-100-4.1 and the ATF-120-5.1 -- combine tried and tested features with innovations. Operating companies, operation planners and operators can still trust in the economical 2-engine concept, the efficient crane control AML-F, the innovative Lift Adjuster, and the unique jib HTLJ – telescopable even under load, one of the options available only from Tadano, according to the manufacturer.

One could argue that the new Tadano GTC-2000 telescopic boom crawler crane anticipated a development: developed and built at Demag in Zweibrücken, it made its concept debut at bauma 2019. Now that Demag is part of the Tadano Group, the crane was relaunched as the Tadano GTC-2000 at ConExpo 2020.

The digitization of the working world has long become an integral part of the crane industry. With this in mind, Demag's IC-1 Remote cloud solution enables remote access to and diagnosis of all relevant crane data from any location – including online troubleshooting by Demag Support.

Rough-terrain crane buyers are on the hunt for bigger machines, in the 100-ton and 120-ton classes specifically. Crane manufacturers serving the North American market heard their customers loud and clear, and took advantage of ConExpo 2020 to unveil new models.
