First Tadano ATF-100-4.1 in England

17 November 2020

Crane service provider Sangwin Plant Hire, based in Hull, East Yorkshire, has taken delivery of England’s first Tadano ATF-100 4.1 all terrain crane.

Sangwin ordered the new ATF-100-4.1 with an 18m boom extension, 30.4t counterweight – 18.3t of this roadworthy within STGO regulations – and an AMOT engine shutdown system. Tadano says the crane’s two-engine design offers benefits for a wide variety of industries such as chemical, oil and gas terminals. The UK company has invested in five Tadano cranes in the last two years– one ATF 60G-3, one ATF 70G-4, two ATF 100G-4, and now an ATF-100-4.1.

“Tadano cranes have long been an indispensable part of our vehicle fleet as a result of their high quality and reliability. In fact, around two thirds of our cranes come from this manufacturer, and it’s not just the products that have earned our confidence, but the services as well,” said managing director Nick Sangwin.

Following the handover, inductions and training, the new ATF-100-4.1 was deployed on a six-week assignment in Hull.
