Tadano Announces New Additions to Rough Terrain Family
In January of this year, Tadano gave the world a sneak peek at one of their latest groundbreaking models, the GR-1000XLL-4, and also announced the debut of the new GR-800XL-4. During the March 2020 CONEXPO-CON/AGG tradeshow in Las Vegas, the two cranes were unveiled to the public, granting the industry a firsthand glimpse. With both cranes serving as two of the newest additions to the Tadano rough terrain family, there continue to be many in the industry who aren’t too familiar with the exciting key features, which is why Scott-Macon Equipment is proud to be one of the first authorized dealers in the world to have the Tadano GR-1000XLL-4 and GR-800XL-4 in our fleet.
GR-1000XLL-4 and GR-800XL-4 Features and Capabilities
The GR-1000XLL-4 is a 100-ton capacity rough terrain crane and has a maximum boom length of 167.3’ and a maximum jib length of 58.1’, making for an impressive gross vehicle weight of 123,500 lbs. (98,800 lbs. without any counterweight). The GR-800XL-4 is an 80-ton capacity rough terrain crane with a maximum boom length of 154.2’ also with a maximum jib length of 58.1’. The GR-800XL-4’s gross vehicle weight, with counterweight, is 99,800 lbs. Also complete with a newly redesigned cab, the GR-800XL-4 allows for a more efficient operation, which may be one of the reasons why Tadano called it, “one of the most versatile and well-balanced rough terrain cranes in the industry” (Tadano America Press Release).
Subsequently, one of the new and exciting features for the GR-1000XLL-4 is the smart counterweight system. Along with the 2020 GR-1000XL-4, these are the first Tadano rough terrain cranes to have this system, which allows for two mounting positions. This will ultimately increase the load chart by up to 20%. Some other new features that you can expect to see are the Tadano View System, Clearance Sonar, HELLO-NET telematics web-information service with correlating smartphone app, a newly developed pump disconnect function, and all of the other standard Tadano features that the industry knows and loves.
