James sells its 100th Tadano in Australia

James Equipment has been selling Tadano GT-550EX cranes since 2004 when it was appointed the sole Australian distributor for crane manufacturer Tadano.According to James Equipment, the Tadano crane model is in strong demand in the Australian market.Goldfields Crane Hire in Kalgoorlie purchased the 100th Tadano crane, which has superior lifting capacities and is modern and reliable, according to Goldfields Crane founder Rick Musarra.“Right now, I have another six Tadano cranes on order, ranging from a 65-tonne model through to a 160-tonne crane,” Musarra said.According to James Equipment group general manager Peter Shelton, crane companies and industrial operators around the country have purchased the GT-550EX model.“This model from Tadano is quite an exceptional model due to its universal appeal,” said Shelton. “And there seems to be no let-up in demand as we source as many of these cranes as we can get from the Tadano factory in Japan.”The GT-550EX was designed and engineered in Japan, featuring a five-stage, 42m main boom with 14.6m fly jib. The crane features Tadano’s own four-axle carrier with a Euro 2-compliant six-cylinder turbo diesel engine and a road speed up to 83km per hour.Operated by a joystick, the crane model has an eight-stage gearbox.Headquartered in the US, Tadano is one of the world’s largest hydraulic crane manufacturers.
