Most Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Please tell me how to operate CAD.

A: We do not accept inquiries about how to operate CAD software. Please check the instructions included with the CAD software you are using.

Q: I want CAD data that is not on the data list.

A: All CAD data currently available from Tadano is displayed in the data list.

Q: The data is not displayed on the screen correctly.

A: This system is compatible with Internet Explorer 6.0 or later versions.

Questions about CAD Data

Q: Does it cost money to download this CAD data?

A: This CAD data can be downloaded free of charge.

Q: The browser does not proceed to the CAD data screen.

A: The cookie settings may be invalid.
Especially when using Internet Explorer 6, cookies are disabled in the default setting. Please change the settings as follows:
For Internet Explorer 6.0:
Click "Tools" in the menu bar → "Internet Options" → "Privacy Tab" → "Advanced Privacy Settings" → "Override automatic Cookie handling" →check "Always allow session cookies" → click "OK".

Q: After downloading the CAD data, it is decompressed and a DXF file is created, but the data does not open on the screen.

A: In order to use the CAD data, CAD software is necessary. Without CAD software you can not open the data.

Q: I have CAD software, but I can not open a DXF file.

A: Make sure that there is a "DXF" box in the "Open" command of your CAD software.

Q: The CAD data was downloaded in PDF format. Where is the data in DXF format?

A: Make sure that you did not download the "Specifications"data. Both "Specifications" and "CAD data" are selectable on the top screen after you agree to the terms of use.
Please click the "CAD data" icon on the top screen.

Q: Please provide me with a traveling locus diagram.

A: We are sorry, but this is not available. Instead, please download the parts diagram of the required model from the website and create a CAD diagram that meets your requirements.

Q: I do not understand how to use CAD data. Could you tell me?

A: We do not accept inquiries about how to operate CAD software. Please check the instructions included with the CAD software you are using.

Q: What is the scale to which the CAD data is provided?

A: Tadano provides CAD data at actual scale.

Q: Please tell me how to assemble parts.

A: Origin points are attached to each part. Please layer these origin points to see how the parts are assembled.

Questions about Specifications

Q: What is the meaning of the bold lines in the rated load chart?

A: Mobile crane load chart ratings are determined by either (1) strength (the crane will not break when lifting a load) or (2) the stability (the crane does not overturn when lifting a load) .The lower figure out of the two elements is used to determine rated capacity.
With mobile cranes, when working within a small radius, the crane's limitations are determined by the strength of its boom. When working within a larger radius, the crane's limitations are determined by its tipping point. The bold lines indicate at which point an overload would damage the crane structurally (those values above the bold line) as compared to the point at which an overload would damage the crane by tipping it over (those values below the bold line).
Whether looking at the load ratings above or below the bold line, there is no problem with setting up any work load that stays within the rated load limits provided in the load chart.
As an important note for setting up work plans, load ratings are calculated for the crane when it is set up on a level surface. Also, since the AML safety device prevents any crane operations outside of the rated capacities provided in the load chart, there may be instances where you will need to use higher capacity cranes for certain lifts, so please make your work plans accordingly.

Q: A gradeability of (tan θ) 0.57 is provided in the specification sheet of the rough terrain crane. Is it really possible for the vehicle to climb actual roads at this grade?

A: A gradeability of (tan θ) 0.57 is equal to 30° in terms of angle, but this value is a calculation of the maximum permissible inclination angle determined by calculations that take engine, torque converter, and transmission into account. Therefore, if there is no slip between the road surface and the tire, it is possible to climb up a road with a 30° grade.
However, there is some slip on actual roads, which is determined by the road surface friction coefficient. If the road surface friction coefficient is 0.6 or more, it is possible to climb up a road up a road with a 30° grade. In general, the road surface friction coefficient is estimated to be 0.4 to 0.7 for paved (dry) surfaces, but when the road surface friction coefficient is 0.4, the possible grade ability is about 20°.
