Rough-terrain crane buyers are on the hunt for bigger machines, in the 100-ton and 120-ton classes specifically.
With a capacity of 160 ton, the Tadano GR-1600-XL rough terrain crane has one of the highest lifting capacities in its class, according to the manufacturer.
In North America, many rough terrain cranes are used in confined spaces such as refineries where operating and maintaining cranes can be challenging.
With an upgraded maximum lift capacity of 80 tons (73 t) and a long boom of 154.2 ft. (47 m), the Tadano GR-800XL-4 is one of the most versatile and well-balanced rough terrain cranes in the industry, according to the manufacturer.
Tadano debuted the GR-150XL-3, a new compact rough terrain crane for the North American market, at ConExpo-Con/AGG.
The Australian government has deployed a Grove RT540E rough-terrain crane to work at Davis station, one of the four research stations in the Australian Antarctic Program.
The Terex rough terrain TRT 80US is an 80 ton max capacity crane with a main boom length of 138 ft. (42.1 m) ft.
