Sterling Crane purchases 500-ton (450 tonne) all-terrain crane.

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada-headquartered crane services company Sterling Crane has taken delivery of the first Tadano AC 7.450-1 in the country.

The seven-axle all-terrain crane has a 262.5’ (80 metre) main boom and compact carrier length, plus Tadano’s IC-1, Sideways Superlift System (SSL) and Surround View systems.

The 500-ton (450 tonne) all-terrain crane will initially be used for refinery work in western Canada, but may then also be used for wind turbine, bridge and infrastructure work.

"Everyone knows the quality of Tadano machines, and this new all-terrain crane will be a great fit for our customers throughout the region,” says Tom MacLeod, president of Sterling Crane Canada. “The AC 7.450-1 has amazing power and reach, and it fits the roads and tough jobs of western Canada. Tadano is known for high-performance cranes and top support, and we are excited that Sterling customers have a powerful new seven-axle option."
