Tadano has enhanced its product range by launching a new international model rough terrain crane, the GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX, its largest 2-axle rough terrain crane. It boasts a maximum lifting capacity of 120 US tons (110 metric tons), and a boom measuring 183.7 ft (56.0m). The GR-1200XL was unveiled to the public at the Conexpo 2017 construction equipment trade show, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center March 7th -11th 2017. Customers from the world reacted with great enthusiasm for this new product.
1. Product Concept
This product is developed for industrial energy sites, especially in North America. Cranes used for construction and maintenance on these sites are required to have 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 reaching, longer boom lengths and larger lifting capacities. To meet these kinds of customer requirements, Tadano has developed the GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX to be both compact and high-performing.
2. Primary Features and Benefits
The GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX has the largest maximum lifting capacity in Tadano's 2-axle rough terrain crane product line. It has a strong and light high tensile steel rounded boom that features a single telescopic cylinder. The crane has a 184.0 ft (56.1m) lifting height and a 144.3 ft (44.0m) load radius. Extra reach is provided by a jib which extends the lifting height to 241.4 ft (73.6m), with a load radius reaching 153.8 ft (46.9m).
2) Compact Carrier and Maneuverability
The GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX has a compact carrier whose size is almost the same as Tadano's GR-1000XL/GR-800EX. This compactness provides high maneuverability and easy transportability.
3) New Smart Chart System
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.
4) Environmentally Friendly Crane
The GR-1200XL/GR-1100EX 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. Through this system, Tadano offers advanced customer support.
