March 13 - Tadano has extended its product range with the GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX, its largest 2-axle model in its rough terrain crane line-up.

The crane boasts a maximum lifting capacity of 110 tonnes and a boom measuring 183.7 ft (56.0 m). 

The crane manufacturer says this product was developed specifically for North America for industrial, commercial and energy sites applications. These construction and maintenance sites require high manoeuvrability, durability, and lifting performance under tough conditions. In addition, there is a need for cranes in the 100-tonne class to have higher reach capabilities, longer boom lengths and larger lifting capacities.

The GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX has the largest maximum lifting capacity in Tadano's 2-axle rough terrain crane product line. It has a strong and light high tensile steel formed boom that features a single telescopic cylinder. The crane has a 184.0 ft (56.1 m) lifting height and a maximum 144.3 ft (44.0 m) working load radius.

Extra reach is provided by a jib which extends the lifting height to 241.4 ft (73.6 m), with a boom only load radius reaching to 153.8 ft (46.9 m).
