Alberta company acquires first Tadano GT-1200XL-2 in Canada

October 31, 2023  By Don Horne

The Myshak Group has been serving the crane needs of Alberta contractors and businesses for over 20 years, and has recently purchased the first GT-1200XL-2 Truck Crane in Canada.

The crane – a five-section 167.3′ main boom, 33.1 ft / 58.1 ft bi‐fold jib, with a maximum speed of 105 km/h will be operated by Myshak Crane & Rigging (MCR).

With valuable input on axle weights, dollies and more, Myshak helped with the design of this ideal taxi crane for the Canadian market.

“We are thrilled to have Tadano back in the Canadian truck crane market,” reads a statement from The Myshak Group. “The GT-1200XL-2 fits into a great space in our fleet, and we believe our customers will see this product as an ideal taxi crane. Tadano is known for well-designed and high-performance cranes, and we are excited to put this truck crane to work.”


The new Tadano truck cranes for the Canadian and U.S. markets can easily get special permitting for transport, as they feature low axle weights, narrow transport width and long boom designs.

“We are very excited that the first GT-1200XL-2 in Canada will go to Myshak. The GT-1200XL-2 is an outstanding machine, and it will be the perfect taxi crane for Myshak’s customer base,” says Tadano America Regional Business Manager Justin Andrews.

The GT-1200XL-2 is designed to provide customers with superior utilization, return on investment and lower cost of ownership. Built with many of the same field-proven, reliable components as GR Series rough terrain cranes, these new models offer the same high quality and rugged durability that Tadano customers have come to expect.

“The Myshak family and Tadano have enjoyed a strong and successful partnership for many years. They have proudly represented the Tadano brand in western Canada by building an extensive fleet of Tadano cranes including GR rough-terrain, AC all-terrain, CC lattice boom crawler cranes and GTC telescopic boom crawler cranes,” says Tadano America Vice President of Sales Ken Butz. “Both Myshak and Tadano are dedicated to exceeding customer expectations by offering the best quality and service in the crane industry, and the addition of new model GT-1200XL-2 truck crane will play a key role in helping both of our companies achieve that goal.”
