Tadano's new four-axle AT showing at ConExpo4 March 2008
Tadano has confirmed its plans for the ConExpo show. It is showing nine newly-launched models, and a total of 11 cranes, including two new truck cranes.
Perhaps the most significant is a new four-axle 90 US ton truck crane, GT-900 XL with 144ft (44m) boom, and the GS-300XL truck crane. The larger runs on a carrier built by German subsidiary Faun that is compliant with EPA Tier 3/Euro MOT IIIa.
Two ATs launched at Bauma are also on show, the three-axle ATF 50G-3 and four-axle ATF 90G-4. The 110 US ton-capacity ATF 90G-4 has two engines: a 428hp (314kW) Mercedes-Benz carrier engine connected to 12-gear ZF AS Tronic automatic transmission, and a 174hp (128kW) engine on the superstructure. The crane carries 22.3t (24.6 US tons) of counterweight. Its 51m (167ft) five-section boom uses a single-cylinder telescoping system. At maximum main boom radius of 158ft the crane lifts 2,900 lbs (1.3t).
Tadano is also showing a new boom truck, the TM-35100.
The company is in booth G-328.
