January 23, 2017  By Tadano

January 23, 2017 – The new GR1200XL will be introduced at ConExpo2017. With 120 tons of capacity this crane is the newest addition to Tadano’s line of industry leading safe, high quality and efficient rough terrain cranes. The GR1200XL sits at the core of Tadano’s large rough terrain line-up and features the industry’s longest boom and jib combinations.

The GR1200XL features a 183-foot 7 inch (56m) 6-section formed boom. It is complemented with a 33 foot 2-inch (10.1m) to 58 feet 1 inch (17.7m) jib and sits on a compact 2-axle carrier.

Considered the “new generation of rough terrain cranes,” Tadano continues to expand the GR series rough terrain crane line-up that now includes seven models ranging from 15 to 160 tons (12mt to 145mt). These cranes are mainstays in the energy/petrochemical/construction sectors due to their excellent reputation for reliability, safety and operational performance. Tadano’s customer base of large fleet owners recognizes the GR series as being the lowest cost rough terrain cranes to own and operate.

“We are particularly eager to unveil this new crane at ConExpo that fills the gap between our popular and market leading GR1000XL and GR1600XL models”, said Ingo Schiller incoming president of Tadano America. “Tadano continues to lead the rough terrain crane market by building high quality cranes that have the lifting performance and ease of transport that our customers need,” said Schiller.


Other important features include:
•Tadano’s Load Moment Indicator (AML-C) with full on-board diagnostics;
•Cummins powered Tier IV compliant QSB6.7 direct injection engine;
•Tadano quality manufactured hoist and telescopic cylinders;
•Added safety features include multiple tie off points and safe access and egress points; and
•Backed by Tadano’s easy access customer service organization.

By popular demand, Tadano reintroduces the ATF110G-5:
This popular Tadano 121-ton (110mt) crane has been upgraded to include several new and enhanced features including multiple counterweight configurations for ease of transport and the new AML-F load moment system that includes full on-board diagnostics.

The ATF110G features a 170-foot 6 inch 5-section formed boom and a jib configuration ranging from 12.5 feet (3.8m) to 105’ feet (32m). The jib includes an integrated heavy lift jib. 

“The former ATF110-G-5 was one our most popular cranes,” said Mark Krajci, All-Terrain Crane product manager. “We have been looking forward to the new model introduction and the improved ability to work and transport the machine in multiple counterweight configurations.” 

Additional features include:
•Asymmetrical outrigger set up, exclusive lift-release adjuster safety system that provides radius correction for boom deflection under load
