August 7 - Austin Crane Services has taken delivery of its first Tadano ATF 90G-4 all terrain crane.

The ATF 90G-4 features a compact design and according to Austin Crane Services owner and president, Larry Taylor, the "hydraulic luffer and the turning radius are a huge plus when getting in and out of and working on confined job sites".

The new crane has a lifting capacity of 110-tonnes and a boom length of 51.2 m. Since its arrival in Texas the crane has been used to build and set tanks, and utilised in downtown Austin working inside street barricades with narrow lane closures.
