Tadano’s new GR-1200XL/GR-1200EX Rough Terrain Crane
January 24, 2018 By Crane and Hoist Staff
Tadano has extended its product range with the GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX, its largest two-axle rough terrain crane in their rough terrain crane line-up. The crane boasts a maximum lifting capacity of 120 US tons (110 metric tons), and a boom measuring 183.7 feet (56m).
This product was developed specifically for North America for industrial, commercial and energy sites applications. These construction and maintenance sites require high maneuverability, durability, and lifting performance under tough conditions. In addition, there is a need for cranes in the 100 US ton – class to have higher reach capabilities, longer boom lengths and larger lifting capacities. To meet these kinds of customer demands, Tadano has developed the GR-1200XL/1100EX to be both compact and high performing.
The GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX has the largest maximum lifting capacity in Tadano’s two-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-foot (56.1m) lifting height and a maximum 144.3-foot (44.0m) working load radius. Extra reach is provided by a jib, which extends the lifting height to 241.4 feet (73.6m), with a boom only load radius reaching to 153.8 feet (46.9m).
The GR-1200XL has a compact carrier with a similar size as Tadano’s GR-1000XL. This compactness provides high maneuverability and transportability.
With conventional cranes, outriggers extended to their maximum length provide uniform, circular rated load capacity footprint over 360° of slewing angle. However, thanks to Tadano’s newly developed Smart Chart, a safety device and control system, the crane can achieve a square-shaped rated load capacity footprint, with extended “corners” over the outriggers that increase the load radius depending on the degree to which the outriggers are extended.
The GR-1200XL comes equipped with Tadano’s state-of-the-art fuel monitoring system; Eco-Mode, which reduces fuel consumption when the crane is being operated; and positive control, which reduces fuel consumption when the crane is on standby.
Using Hello-Net telematics, customers can monitor their crane activity, work history, machine position data, and maintenance information with computers and mobile devices.
