Tadano launched the GR-1300XL-4 rough terrain crane for the North American market. The GR-1300XL-4 expands Tadano’s rough terrain offerings into the 130 USt weight class.

Its six-section boom can extend up to 183.7 feet using a telescoping pinning system. Tadano’s “Smart Chart” is also on-board, allowing the crane’s work performance to be maximized. With a compact carrier length of just 28 feet on a two-axle system and a self-removable counterweight, the GR-1300XL-4 can be transported to job sites easily and efficiently. The GR-1300XL-4’s new design offers improved safety, greater work efficiency, environmental integrity and exceptional quality.

Powering the GR-1300XL-4 is a 280 horsepower Cummins B6.7 engine capable of producing a maximum of 280 horsepower (209kW) and 850ft-lb (1,152Nm) of torque. Its transmission has five forward speeds that are complimented by four unique steering modes. The GR-1300XL-4 also comes with a 20-degree tiltable cab for improved safety, visibility, and comfort, and is controlled by Tadano’s AML-E2 system on a large, 10.4-inch multifunction display that is pressure-sensitive to handle gloved operation.

View System 

The GR-1300XL-4 is equipped with the Tadano View System, a three-camera network that offers right front, rearview, and blind-spot views to assist with safe crane operation and driving. The GR-1300XL-4 also includes Tadano’s Clearance Sonar system that integrates four proximity sensors into the rear fender of the crane to audibly and visually alert the operator of any obstacles behind, while also serving as a blind-spot warning system.

Environmentally friendly

The newly-developed pump disconnect function automatically stops the operation of the crane’s hydraulic pump if the crane is not operated for a certain period of time. This function contributes to a reduction in fuel consumption.

The crane is also equipped with functions such as the Fuel Monitoring System, Eco-Mode, and Positive Control that support environmentally-friendly operations by reducing CO2 emissions, improving fuel consumption, and reducing noise.

Tadano Hello-net and Hello-Data Link

Tadano’s HELLO-NET telematics web information service records the crane’s operation status using mobile communications, as well as positional information via GPS and maintenance data. Tadano shares information about the product in use and offers advanced customer support and service.
