Gladstone-based Xtreme Engineering has become the first business in Australia to take delivery of the new Tadano ATF120G-5.1 all-terrain crane.
With a 60m main boom and maximum lifting capacity of 120t, the ATF-120-5.1 is described by the manufacturer as being consistently the most powerful crane of its class for radiuses between 16m and 56m.
Given the crane has the same superstructure as the ATF-100-4.1, the jibs (3.7m to 31.9m) and counterweights within the vehicle width can be used on either of the two cranes.
Thanks to a hydraulic folding device, a single person can fold the jib transported next to the main boom and pin it via a crank handle from the ground. (More details HERE)
