The first Tadano GR-700EX-4 from Japan arrived at the Tadano Nederland BV location in Purmerend. With the boom length of 47 meters and the lifting capacity of 70 tonnes at a radius of three meters, the GR-700EX-4 is the entry point for the new Tadano rough terrain crane family. Its synchronized telescoping system can extend the boom to a length of 35 meters in 142 seconds. In addition, it features a compact carrier and has a total height of just 3.82 meters. The crane’s 2-staged, bifold jib offers offset positions of 3.5˚, 25˚ or 45˚ from the main center boom line. According to the manufacturer this not only makes it possible to transport the new Tadano GR-700EX-4 rough terrain crane efficiently, but also makes the machine well-suited to tight work sites – especially in conjunction with the Tadano Smart Chart System, which determines the lifting capacity based on the position of the boom and outriggers. This enables it to provide the maximum available lifting capacity even at constrained locations where the outriggers cannot be extended fully. In addition, the GR-700EX-4 comes with the Hello-Net communication system as standard. This system continuously monitors the crane’s operating data, including its operating status, location, configuration, and maintenance. The matching Tadano Hello-Data Link smartphone app connects the crane to mobile devices, making it easier to conveniently access this data in real time.

To put it simply, our rough terrain cranes are among the best that the market has to offer for jobs on difficult terrain,” highlights General Manager of Sales International, Mr. Futoshi Kimura.
